Ghost Music...

The Congos - Congoman

The Congos - Fisherman

"Years ago one of my cousins, who would have been about 7 or so at the time, asked me what I was listening to on my personal stereo.
I gave her the headphones and let her have a blast of "Heart Of The Congos" by The Congos.
She sat in stunned silence for about 10 minutes and then gently handed the 'phones back and whispered, " sounds like... ghosts"....
I think Lee Perry would love that description."

(Mercilessly culled from a comment by Budgie on a previous post...)
