Here's two mixes of Halloween oriented songs, most vintage, and nary a mash in sight. One is 25 songs, the other is 31. That's a good couple hours of stuff to play at your Halloween bash, should you be so inclined. Enough music that you can repeat it twice during the party, preventing the situation in which everybody starts manhandling your record collection. (Just throw a tablecloth over them or something.) Anyway, check out some of the band names: the Big Guys, Hutch Davie, the Swanks, Jimmie Hombs with the Invictas and the Hollywood Rebels, the Black Albinos...the band names alone evoke some sort of everyman brand of ghoulish song stylists. I'm linking to their posts, rather than directly to the download links, because they both have the complete play lists on their sites. I just wanted you to see some of the band names to get you all riled up.
