Hornbook After Midnight

Hey again... Got a few requests for this one, so I am re-upping it.

As I said in the previous blog entry:

"Despite the title, I haven't included all of the tracks from the 'hornbook' album. That one just has the neatest title! What I did was pick a cd's worth of my faves of about 4 different albums--(and I only hope the engmatic Jason, whom I've never met, doesn't get sick of me 'piggybacking' off of his blog!)-- put them to music, put them together in (I hope) a coherent, thematic track-order... and here they are! Just in time for YOU, to play it at your next swingin' Halloween Horror Party!!"

And after a year of listening to it--I've noticed a fault or three, here & there that drive me nuts.. so I do want to include a disclaimer: This is, in fact, an amateur project, so don't be TOO annoyed with the fact that the music for 'Lavender Evening Dress' switches on & off at odd times, or that I should never have tried to use noise reduction on 'All Saint's Eve'...

Anyway, I still enjoy hearing this collection, even though I was clearly a novice in the world of audio-editing. Hope you enjoy it, too.

A Hornbook For Witches: The 'After Midnight' Edition

Update! 10/13 : ...And here's the fixed version of All Saint's Eve

Wow...really glad you re-posted.... great stuff...

I must say you are right about the All Saints Eve track... the metallic effect of the noise filter is really distracting... but what a job you did on the mix of that track!!! You really should re-master it for this is super Strong and would be sooo scary without the noise reduction...

It really is the jewel in the collection [ a some how 'extended' version of Broomstick Train would really be the other's so good...but Man! sooo short...] Both worthwhile projects I would think.

just my humble thoughts... wonderful stuff!

Thanks, glad you liked it.

Unfortunately, the trouble with remastering it is that I don't have access to the the originals any more, to re-do the tracks. But I figure Jason at ScarStuff has plans tore-post his old shares & I can grab them again...

Just discovered your blog during my annual Halloween web cruising. Any chance you could repost The Mansion That is Haunted?
I'm really diggin you Exotic Mansion mix.
Also, if you're lookin for some 'source' material, do a search on for Halloween Junkie. They've got lots of stuff Jason's put up in the past.
