Yippie yi Ohhhhh yi Yaaaaay MotherF**kers!

Ghost Riders Comp
Starting off this Halloween season with a few treats and one trick. This has been a labor of love for 2 years collecting as many versions of this as I can. One of my ALL TIME favorite songs - never get tired of it - good, bad, or ugly- which you will get in these discs. Everything from folk to classic to weird to surf to live cuts. Special thanks to EEK the Cat, Frisian and Ryp for contributions and many others who I have scarfed versions from around the net. Differeing bitrates due to sources. Enjoy. I want them all - supposedly about 200 versions exist. If you folks have any not here, PLEEEZ, let me know and they, too, will be honored. Thanks.

Here's the Concrete Blonde version...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zz3Hg3kAK3w

Let me know if you need me to send mp3 to your email.

DaBoss said...

Tina:

Yes, you can post it on a file sharing network like zshare.net
or mediafire and put the link here just like Big Cheese and Marino did. That makes it easy for all. Thanks for your interest - let's keep em rolling.

DaBoss,

In case you don't have "Mr. Blue - Ghostriders In The Sky", here's the link: http://www.sendspace.com/file/jphj4j

Cheers...the dog

Shock said...

Here's another version that just came to your collection. Chicos De Barrio interpret with the rhythm of cumbia (a very popular Mexican musical rhythm) and that surely is the most kitsch exists.

gerard said...

There is also a version of Space Lady, but maybe this is already mentioned somewhere. http://artdecade.blogspot.com/2011/08/space-lady-ghost-riders-in-sky.html
