Ian R. Smith is the "Witchfinder" as Jamaica's love of hit movie titles again a manifests itself as a wicked Reggae groove. Sung and produced by the artist himself Ian Smith makes a convincing Vincent Price with his bloodcurdling voice booming through the dance rhythms.

Heavy duty Hammond rhythms relentlessly prompts the Smithy delivery of this compelling tune. Irresistible dance pulses pump out as the eerie vocal sends out warnings of pursuit.

One cool tune, very sought after seldom seen for sale.

Flip it over fir more "Smithy" novelty, this time he morphs into being smooth seducer.. I like him more as the sadistic burner of Witches rather than the sickly insincere smoothie...
