OLDIES SUNDAY: Early B – Ghost Busters (1984)


The Duppy/Ghost/Obeah culture is very much alive in Jamaica. While we don’t celebrate events like Halloween (though the Party goers and folks in certain Communities do), we are aware of the spirits, certain folklore, and the people who claim to have connections to the dead or possess skills in Witchcraft. Today, we bring you “Oldies Sunday” to fire off a selection from the late Recording Artist, Early BThe Doctor” which adds to the Ghost/Duppy theme. The tune we present is called, “Ghost Busters“!

“Ghost Busters” was produced by Nkrumah Manley “Jah” Thomas, and released in 1984 through the Midnight Rock Label on the “Stormy Weather Riddim“. The single was also the opening track to his 1985 Album of the same name. In the song, Early B speaks on his adventures as a Ghost Buster as he saves the community of Yallahs, St. Thomas from a ghostly threat. Fearing nobody but Jah, he gets to work on eradicating the threat.
