  1. 84 Days Till Halloween

    84 Days Till Halloween
    More from the Miscellaneous Music folder…

    Jill Tracy - Diabolical Streak (1999)
    I heard portions of this album on an old “Hearts of Space” Halloween program. Tracy’s music is kind of old-timey, very sophisticated, and darkly sexy. The songs like “Evil Night Together”, “The Fine Art of Poisoning”, and “You Leave Me Cold” sound like they could be coming from a cabaret club in the 20’s. There are few instruments (piano, drum, bass, ...

    85 Days Till Halloween

    Not ready for sound effects or sound atmospheres … still enjoying the music. And I’m not a huge fan of sound effects CDs anyway.

    John Carradine - Halloween Spooktacular - Poe with Pipes (2003)
    This is a re-release of an older record … not sure when it was released originally. The first track is a 14-minute sound effects track that is old-fashioned and fun. The second is 17 minutes of Verne Langdon’s ominous yet impressive ...

    86 Days Till Halloween

    Should be able to wrap up the “Old Rock” folder today, thanks in part to an early start at work…

    Monster Sounds & Boppin' Tracks Vol. 01 (1995)
    This compilation comes from Toto records. It starts pretty strong … at first, I thought it might be a whole CD of monster rock instrumentals, which would’ve set it apart from other releases. It still is a pretty nice collection. I like Dinah Shore’s “Scene of the Crime”, Mancini’s ...

    87 Days Till Halloween

    The Ultimate 50's and 60's Rockin' Horror Disc (2003)
    More of the same stuff I’ve been hearing, but that doesn’t make it any less fun. I enjoy “I’m the Wolfman” by Round Robin, “Werewolf” by the Frantics, “Watusi Zombie” by Jan Davis, and “She’s My Witch” by Kip Tyler. Gary “Spider” Webb’s two-parter called “The Cave” is certainly unusual … surf music with two kids (Jimmy and Julie) yelling for each other while they are lost in a cave. ...

    91 Days Till Halloween

    Taking the kids camping this weekend, so for the next couple days I should brush up on my ghost stories. I’m going to pick and choose my favorites out of that folder today. We’ll start with a Grammy winner!

    Buck Howdy - Aaaaah! Spooky, Scary Stories & Songs (2010)
    I love this CD. Buck Howdy is Steve Vaus who records country and western music for kids. Here, Buck sits at the campfire and warns us … ominously! … that maybe ...
