Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-tober 28, 2017 (Stream + Tracklist): All Tricks, No Treats Jah-loween Special!

Greetings,

Smile Jamaica loves Halloween. Or Jah-loween as I call it. Plenty of Reggae songs dealing with the Undead. Tapping into the superstitious nature of many Reggae artists. I harvest about 2 cd suitcases, 1 bag of 7″ 45s and a crate full of vinyl devoted to….

Satan, Vampires, Ghosts & Duppies, Frankenstein, Zombies and other evil forces and black magicians..

In between, I stitched in a whole heap of Halloween movies trailers: Wolfman, Frankenstein and Young Franenstein, Nosferatu and many more.

So in the words of Lee “Scratch” Perry: Pick up your cross and follow me!

curse, Bobbylon
