Dear Fellow Music Listeners,
I, the marvelously modest mollusk, Mr. Snail, have traveled the world high and low (mostly low), searching for the most exquisite Halloween records in both the animal and vegetable kingdoms to spin at my infamous Halloween parties, and that sort of journey takes quite a long time for a snail if I must say so myself! The results of my recent findings are hereby contained in this compilation disc, an eclectic mixture of frightfully delightful tunes spanning the stranger side of the musical spectrum, with plenty of rock at its most rolly.
Some of these tracks are newly realized interpretations of Halloween classics such as the Dust Jackets' eerie take on the theme from "Mad Monster Party" Ego Plum's vivacious version of "This Is Halloween", and Mike Odd & the Oddities terrible trip down a "Nature Trail to Hell." The majority of the album is filled with freshly exhumed rarities in the form of Jad Fair's "The Pit", the Ghastly Ones' "Graveyard Shift", Parry Gripp's "Sasquatch", Nightmare of the Elf's "Mortal Coil" and unearthed gems from the past like Night of the Creeps' "Zombie Girl."
We here at the Snail Sounds recording company would love nothing more than to share this fine music with fine humans such as yourself and and we hope this album will inspire you to have your own Halloween party at any time of any season.
CEO, Snail Sounds
