Day 341 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Crystalites - Ghost Rider
Another spooky tune to keep you inna Halloween mood! This one is called "Ghost Rider" and it was recorded by Derrick Harriott's studio band The Crystalites. Originally released as a 7" on the Song Bird label in 1970 as the b-side to an instrumental cover of the Beatles song "Lady Madonna," this is the version of Derrick Harriott's tune "Riding For A Fall" that he recorded the year before. Yet another one of those good ol' fashioned early reggae spook tunes that has always held a special place in my heart and in my ears. It was featured as the lead track to the 2007 Spooktacular.
