Day 362 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Lloyd Charmers - Bone Yard Skank

While today's track has really little to do with "Bone Yards" aside from the ghostly introduction and its title, "Bone Yard Skank" is actually Lloyd Charmers' instrumental version of his Marvin Gaye "Let's Get It On" cover. And while it settles into a smooth groove and leaves the spookiness behind, it is a welcome addition to the spooky library. Originally released in 1974 on the Harry J label and featured in the 2009 Spooktacular, I've always "dug" this one... if you'll pardon the pun.
