From the dank and gloomy depths of former Upsetter keyboardist Glen Adams' vault arises the latest entry in the 2015 Spooktacular. This one is called "Graveyard Bully" and it was recorded sometime in the early 70s and features future Wailers Carly and Family Man Barrett on drum and bass. Glen Adams unearthed these tapes back in the early 90s, remixed them and introduced them in 1995 on the Heartbeat Records release Upsetters A Go Go. A nice spooky slice of early reggae... at least after the embellishments.
The track features the trailer of the 1974 Amicus horror anthology film From Beyond The Grave, one of my Halloween Month favorites and starring the late great Peter Cushing as the proprietor of Temptations Ltd., an antique shop whose items come back to terrify those who knowingly cheat the shopkeeper. It comes highly recommended by yours truly and I believe it works well with the groove laid down by Glen Adams and the Upsetters Crew!
