Day 353 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Wailers - Jumbie Jamboree

The Wailers recorded "Jumbie Jamboree" for Coxsone Dodd and had it released on Studio One in 1965.  Based on the classic "Zombie Jamboree" AKA "Back To Back" which has been featured on multiple Spooktaculars over the years in its multitude of incantations, and originally recorded by Calypsonian Winston "Lord Invader" O'Conner in 1953, this ska version by Bob, Bunny and Peter (on lead vocals I might add) is one of the best.
