Day 343 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - James Bond - Duppyman Skank
Any song that makes reference to Peter Cushing as Dr. Frankenstein and the music video for Michael Jackson's Thriller is okay in my book. Especially when the song was recorded by James Bond! Yes, that James Bond of the young Sean Connery variety with the white dinner jacket, Aston Martin, Walther pistol and the bevy of wanton beauties at his beck and call! The idea of Sean Connery doing reggae has got me laughing out loud. I'm just pulling your leg, NOT that James Bond. This James Bond, of the Jamaican music variety, was recording "Duppyman Skank" in 1983 and having it released as a 12" on the Magnum label. A nice track to keep you in an October state of mind!
