A Couple Of Brain Eaters For Your Halloween Listening Pleasure!

In an effort to eat a little more of your brains, in a good way of course, I've uploaded both the 2006 and 2007 Halloween Spooktaculars! Tracklists are available by checking out the Distinctly Jamaican Sounds archives for October 2006 and October 2007 because I'm feeling particularly lazy this afternoon! Be sure to listen with the lights out... it tends to add to the macabre mood!

If you play these at high volume next Friday that time honored tradition of playing scary sound effects for the trick-or-treaters when they approach your house will be turned on its ear! Think about it this way... you'll either have children shrieking in fear as those distinctive Jamaican basslines riddled with spooky sound effects thump through the crisp night air or you'll have the cops busting down your door thinking there's a Halloween party inside that's getting out of control! Whatever you choose to do with them is up to you but I only have one request... enjoy!

If you're going to take future Spooktaculars to email, how can I get on the mailing list? Also, will we be able to get the full 2008 Spooktacular in one download? -- I have noticed problems on some of the files downloaded individually. Thanks for doing this -- it's great and makes my Halloween *so* much better!
