Old Halloween Mixes

In 2009 I put together two different Halloween music mixes. I wanted something a little more hip that the old school fare usually floating around. And as it happened, my office was having a Halloween party and needed some tunes for the occasion.

And so Something Wicked and While Vampires Sleep were born.

I had these mixes -- track listings, album art, and mp3s -- packed up and tucked away on my backup harddrive. Which I stupidly didn't have a backup of, so of course, that drive died. Thankfully I had the track listings and album art tucked away on Tumblr and unearthed them this year.

I'll post the album art at some point, but for now, here are the track listings. Enjoy.
