Day 340 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Dynamites - Phantom

The 340th track in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge is "Phantom" by the Dynamites.  The Dynamites were the studio band for Clancy Eccles and featured Winston Wright on organ, Hucks Brown on guitar, Gladstone Anderson on piano, Jackie Jackson on bass and Paul Douglas on drums.  This tune was originally released on Eccles' Clandisc label in 1970 and most famously used as the backing track for King Stitt's classic "Herbsman Shuffle." Wright's organ and Brown's guitar are stellar on this one and even if it wasn't called "Phantom" it still has that creepy vibe that makes it a personal October/Halloween favorite and that's why it was originally included on the 2008 Spooktacular... eight long years ago!
