The Complete Jamaican Halloween Mix 2007

The big day has arrived! I want to thank everyone who gave me all the positive feedback and hopefully now that you've all got the entire mix on your hard drive I'll be hearing more... what's that you say? You missed track 12 & 23? Well no need to despair... here is my little Halloween treat to those who may have missed something or joined us late and due to real life concerns were unable to download each individual track and even to those who'd prefer to hear the Spooktacular in all of its unedited glory...

The Complete Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2007

Last year I was able to put together a five song add-on mix as a final holiday offering but because of the insane demands of my full-time job I wasn't able to get one done this year. So instead... I have upped my Non-Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2007 for your listening pleasure or if you're exclusively a fan of Jamaican music, your displeasure. You'd never know it by reading this blog but I actually do have musical interests outside of the Caribbean and this mix should prove it. The mix is done in the same style as the Jamaican Spooktacular with lots of layered sound effects, movie clips, Halloween record snippets, etc. but aside from 2 tracks it's decidedly Non-Jamaican.

Dear Mr. Reggaexx,

Thank you so much for these incredibly fun recordings you made us for Halloween, they are really awesome, There is however a small favor that I want to ask you for.
Track 23 as you so kindly noticed is indeed missing on it's own.
You forgot to post it for all people who have collected all numbers day by day, there is no tr. 23 standing alone to download, just the hole mix, could you post it standing alone please ?
You are the best, thanks so much.

Hello Moos,

Glad you've been enjoying the mix! Actually Track 22 from yesterday was the final track... when I planned out the tracklisting I figured I'd feature a different song for every weekday during the month except for Halloween day itself. That way I thought people would be able to compile the songs in order and listen to them in their entirety on Halloween. So, if you've got 22 tracks... you've got 'em all.

Happy Halloween

Many Thanks for these, I am DJing at a bar in Glasgow (Scotland) tonight and will make liberal use of them ;-) I posted you a link earlier to download a UK/JA reggae track celebrating serial killers. only a couple of days left before download expires http://beta.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=batch_download&batch_id=dDZHWUhqRnc4NVUwTVE9PQ

Harri - thanks for reminding me about the serial killer tune - just downloaded it and listening to it now! It's a good one! Hope the tunes work well for you tonight!

Happy Halloween!

Just making the rounds to thank you (& folks like you at other sites -- Jason @ scar stuff, Dave56, WFMU, Mashuptown, & at least one or two other folks/sites) for suppling my Halloween soundtrack. I only found you on the 29th or so, so catching up with all that downloading (& getting through MegaUpload -- a necessary evil, but an evil nonetheless) was rough, but well worth it.

While I really like reggae (& have for years), I never got much past the basic artists (Cliff, Marley, Tosh, Wailers, Issacs) so the education that comes with your posts was really helpful, as well... (On the other hand, I saw Tosh live in concert in 79 or 80, and had tickets for Bob Marley at the Apollo Theatre later that year, but my mom was a little too nervous to let her skinny little white teen-age son wander into/around Harlem to see anyone, & put the kabosh on those plans...)

Now that I've found your site, I'm sure I'll be back for more... Thanks again...
