Hello Erick,

For some reason the "download" button is bringing me to a "page not found" page.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thank you,

Mark

Erick Monsterama2000 said...

Thanks everyone for all the great comments. Glad you like the songs.

Mark - I clicked on the Download button and it worked fine. I'm not sure what's wrong. Anybody else got any ideas?

It wouldnt work for me either. Sounds good though.

michael said...

I tried again after de-cluttering my desktop and it worked fine! I should tidy up more often! Thanks!

Jason said...

Hey -- one of my all-time fave CD Halloween comps! I'm glad someone else posted it & I wasn't forced to renege on my "vinyl only" concept for Scar Stuff, 'cause it's a damn shame this (& the rest of the Jass CD catalog) is currently OOP.

Erick Monsterama2000 said...

Hi Jason,
I love your Scar Stuff blog. It's the first blog I look at every day. I don't have the Halloween record collection like you do or the ability to transfer records to mp3's. So, I thought I'd offer up a few CD's in my collection.

Erick Monsterama2000 said...

You're welcome Holly. Glad I could make your Halloween a little happier.

Great music. Reminds me of the stuff my parents had playing around the house while i was growing up. My Dad still has a case full of old 45s from the 1940's. "Swingin'At The Seance" is one of those records. I thik the flip side was "I'll Never Smile Again". Great CD. Thanks.

O NO! I missed this album! The horror! I've been looking for this album for years, and it's about 85 bucks and up. Any chance of a repost?

Erick Monsterama2000 said...

Tabatha said...

Help, is the link disconnected. I keep getting file not found.

Matt H. said...

Hi there! You've got a great blog going on here. Unfortunately, I just discovered it and the wonderful-sounding Halloween Stomp comp that you posted, and the file is not longer available. Can you find it in your heart to re-post? Thanks for all of your great work!
Matt

Erick Monsterama2000 said...

@Tabatha and Matt,

Since you both asked so nicely, I guess I'll have to re-post it :) Give me a few days though, I've been working alot lately.

I bought this cd on ebay several years ago, and it was the best $35 I ever spent! But it's so awesome that you posted this. I also have a CD called 'The Haunted House: 20 Tracks to Make You Jump in the Night'. Its very good but this one is better!

Now, if only I could find more music like this...

Belle Dee

Matt H. said...

Erick-
Thank You, thank you, THANK YOU! I'm listening to the comp now and am in heaven! One of my favorite musical eras meets my all-time favorite holiday. You have made aural peanut butter collide with aural chocolate! Thanks for making my month! Take care!
Matt

Halloween Stomp is awesome.

Has anyone had any luck finding "The Haunted House: 20 Tracks to Make You Jump"?

buglady said...

Wow!!! Thanks so much for sharing this I'm loving every second of it!

www.cottonpopcorn.com said...

Great Album!! Been wanting to listen to this one! Thnx!

Jay Amabile said...

awesome cd thank you!

James said...

Thanks so much for posting this. I made a mixed tape off the radio YEARS ago with most of these songs on it, must have been the DJ's favourite. Needless to say, couldn't find it anywhere else, and it is upwards of £70 now at online shops! All my fav songs, and my 6 year old daughter loves it as well! Thanks, thanks, THANKS!!!

jessi said...

This is exactly what I've been searching for! Thank you sooo much! I'm a halloween-time birthday, and this is sure to make my party the best!! Thanks again!

Megan Lynch said...

I was lucky enough to get this CD when it was still in print. One of the best comps in my collection. It's a damned shame the Stash/Jass catalog is OOP. Great comps and often featuring great Milton Knight artwork.

Thanks for blogging this. It's the easiest way for me to introduce people to this comp. I just point them here.

Jed said...

Excellent! Thank you very much for sharing. Happy Halloween!

Jim Morton said...

Great blog. Thanks for this. I lost my copy in a move a few years back and have been missing it ever since. Possibly the best Halloween compilation ever.

Hmm, you didn't even allow my repost request to remain. Begs the question: what the hell is so "wonderful" about the blog? Do the words "Internet landfill" mean anything to you?

Erick said...

@Anonymous -- you didn't comment on this post. You commented on this one -- http://wonderfulwonderblog.blogspot.com/2007/06/halloween-stomp-link-updated.html. I'm not sure I have this at the moment. I lost a bunch of files last year. If I can find it, I'll try to re-upload it next month.

Erick said...

For some reason Blogger won't let me link to that other post. Look for the post on June 25, 2007 to see your original comment.
