Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2014 - Track Eleven - Terror

Phillip J. Fullwood AKA Jah Marcus, is a percussionist, songwriter, composer and former collaborator with reggae legend Winston Rodney AKA Burning Spear.  Fullwood played congas on a bunch of Burning Spear's albums in the mid-1970s and even co-wrote one of Spear's biggest tunes, "Throw Down Your Arms."

Around the same time, Fullwood produced and released the album Jah Marcus - Words In Dub and we're going to hear a slice of that LP today, spookified properly by yours truly of course!  The tune is called "Terror" and it fits beautifully with our chilling compilation of creepy tunes!

Ok, now I'm having to post fan-mail before I even hear the tune!

John, I'd LOVE to try and get a bigger copy of this masterpiece to hang at home. Either way please tell Roger how massively appreciated his work is; are these covers not are a PERFECT fit for your outstanding selections and signature sonic imagery?!

... uh, better go listen to the tune.
That was from the heart, though, guys - the Spooktacular is steadily approaching some kind of apotheosis.

... Now I've heard it, what can I add???? One of your best - that sweet dub is the perfect base for your Spooktacular seasoning. High Grade indeed!

Thanks! So glad you're diggin' the mix thus far! I will talk to Roger and see if he has got a higher resolution copy of this cover... I'll let you know!

Roger does have a larger resolution copy of this cover - it's about 13 1/2 inches x 20 inches... I uploaded it to Zippyshare...

THANK YOU for taking the trouble to upload it.
You know it's going to end up framed on my wall.
Your peerless mixes and Roger's art; a marriage made in muahahahaha!

Mighty respect to you both
