Well, I have to admit it, and risk sounding ungrateful (though I'm not, please believe)... but you almost lost me with this mix. I wasn't feeling many of the songs on here, but then I started getting that some of them have an undeniable charm. "Skeleton in the Closet" feels like the Squirrel Nut Zippers traveled back in time to play swing in the time period where it originated... and Dan Russo's "T'ain't No Sin" is nothing but fun. I'd never heard Fats Waller's "Dry Bones" and have to say it is the best version of the song I think I've ever heard. Cyril Smith's ode to Anne Boleyn is inspired, spooky, funny, and catchy... and who can hear "Jeepers Creepers" without a chill nowadays? "Harlem Nocturne" is one of my absolute favorite instrumentals anyone, with its old-style noir feel. Todd Rollins BoogieMan/I'm a ghost pair has a classic Casper feel to it (I'm going to feel stupid if it was actually used in one of those old cartoons).

The artwork for this mix's cover is brilliant. It has obvious ties to some of the earlier work I've seen on your blog, (different costumes on the boy and girl, and the Bogey Man is a recurring theme of course) and your devianart gallery... This is probably another of my favorite album covers of the lot.

Thanks again for all the music and art, hope to see you up to all kinds of cool work this year, and Happy Halloween!
