Back in 2006 I discovered a really cool blog called Scar Stuff. The blog belongs to Jason Willis, a true "monster kid" if there ever was one. He mainly featured links to downloads of cool Halloween inspired albums of the 60's and 70's. He had a knack for really capturing the memories of Halloweens of days past. A time when everyone seemed to celebrate the holiday and there were no "fall festivals". It just an all out Halloween assault! The way it should be! Each October Jason brings something new to the table of spooks and this year he has really "knocked the ball outta the part" to quote one follower of the Scar Stuff blog.

In 1969 a children's Halloween album was release called "Halloween: Games, Songs and Stories" by Kay Lande and Wade Denning on Den-Lan Records (later re-released on Golden Records in 1974). The first track was a song called "Halloween". It was based on the classic piece entitled "Danse Macabre" by Saint Saens. The song completely captures the feel of Halloween. Well Jason took this a step further and armed with his i-phone and the hisptamatic app, Jason created a visual that also completely captures the essence of Halloween. Enjoy this incredible piece of original work and don't forget to drop by Jason's blog Scar Stuff for more Halloween spookiness guaranteed to take you back to days gone by!
