the only word of possible warning is that as I havn't seen the Lp yet to compare tracks, I don't know how the cd i have compares with the LP release original release or otherwise. It's likely to be verbatim, but you never know. I can surely reccomend the Jamaican Gold release...

Bonanza Ska was the first thing I had by Carlos Malcolm as well. Look out for 'Ghost Riders In The Sky' which is also great.

I used to like the Shadows version of it when I was a lad.

Ghost riders in the sky
Stan Jones

An old cowpoke went riding out
One dark and windy day,
Upon a ridge he rested as
He went along his way,
When all at once a mighty herd
Of red eyed cows he saw,
A-plowin' through the ragged skies
And up a cloudy draw.

Yippee-yi-ya, yippee-yi-yo,
Ghost herd in the sky.

Their brands were still on fire and
Their hooves were made of steel,
Their horns were black and shiny and
Their hot breath he could feel,
A bolt of fear shot through him as
He looked up in the sky,
For he saw the riders comin' hard
And he heard their mournful cry:

Yippee-yi-ya, yippee-yi-yo,
Ghost riders in the sky.
Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred,
Their shirts all soaked with sweat,
They're riding hard to catch that herd,
But they ain't caught 'em yet,
'cause they've got to ride forever on
That range up in the sky,
On horses snortin' fire, as
They ride on hear their cry:

Yippee-yi-ya, yippee-yi-yo,
Ghost riders in the sky.

The cowpokes loped on past him and
He heard one call his name,
If you want to save your soul from hell
A-riding on our range,
Then, cowboy, change your ways today,
Or with us you will ride,
A-trying to catch the devil's herd
Across these endless skies.

Yippee-yi-ya, yippee-yi-yo,
Ghost riders in the sky.
Ringo

Now I'm feeling jealous after seeing that label as I only have the song on a cdr...........still having the music is the most important thing..........at least that's what I have to keep telling myself!
