Probably one of the most powerful songs done by Jimmy Cliff. The Vietnam War lasted from November 1, 1955 to April 30, 1975.
Okay, Ghostwriters in the Sky covered by the instrumental group The Ventures, is not rare by any means. It is however, one of those fun songs in a "YIPPIE-HI-HOO" kind of way. I believe the ventures will be this cover in 1961.
The tune was first recorded in the days of 78 rpm records. This particular version of the song, the YouTube version is not exact, is part of a two CD set of songs transferred from the original albums. It is remarkable, considering the technology of the time, how clear and lively the music is. Here is the collection information:

This is a cover of the classic Deep Purple song " Space Truckin " by the metal band Tesla from the CD "Real to Reel" which is entirely made up of cover songs. Speaking personally, I think it is better than the original. This entire album demonstrates how talented the band is. Each song is immediately recognizable and yet truly Tesla. If metal is your thing you will definitely want to check this music out.
Label: Tesla Electric Company Recordings. Released: June 5, 2007
