Day 357 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Desmond Dekker - Dracula
Here is another spooky ska side... this one is called "Dracula" by Desmond Dekker and it was recorded at Beverly's in 1964 and released on the Black Swan label. I went back to steal some of what I wrote about this track on a previous Spooktacular when I made the shocking discovery that I hadn't ever used this one!! Oh well, I guess it can add it to the 2017 playlist right now. And while this has little to do with the actual Transylvanian vampire, Dekker's tale of falling in love with a girl who can best be compared to that of the monstrous bloodsucker, is a lot of fun and of course... seasonally appropriate.
