File Sharing Terminated

I toiled over this decision long and hard and gave myself plenty of time to ponder the issue before making my decision, but after all was considered I have decided to cancel all my shares and I will not be sharing anything again.

I have long been an advocate for high quality lossless file sharing or at the very least extremely high quality MP3s with as much proper documentation as available which would include tagging files, cover art scans and a text document with track list, release information and any other pertinent information about the share.

I would go to a lot of effort to ensure my shares were the best quality audio, images and documentation possible.

I have always been disappointed and irritated by the laziness and ineptness of the majority of those who share files. Especially, low quality files, and idiots who don't even put files inside a folder. 128 MP3s are absolutely useless, but assholes complain about higher quality files taking up too much hard drive space and taking too long to upload or download. Please, what a load of crap!

I have run private groups, only allowing those with proper skill levels and qualifications to join and share, but those generally run their course in a few years. I belong to other groups run by individuals who don't care or are themselves too lazy or inept to incorporate any standards at all, meaning you get a majority of people sharing complete crap.

I've never thought it fair that those lazy cretins get to download your excellent shares while all you get is their shit.

However, the thing that irked me more than anything was starting to find my shares elsewhere and they were less than what I had shared to begin with. My ripping credits were removed from the tags, images were removed, distorted or made tiny, and the text documentation was removed.

Now, I can understand that most are too lazy to do all this work to begin with, but why anyone would put forth effort to make a share less than what it was originally and re-share it is beyond my comprehension.

At any rate, I've had enough of this nonsense and hence, no more shares in public blogs or forums where anyone can rape a share and fuck it up.

I will continue to share privately, via Torrents and other P2P venues.

I want to apologize to all those dedicated individuals who, like me, put forth the effort to make their shares the best they can be and strive for perfection, and will no longer get to enjoy my shares.

Lucifer - Black Mass (1971)

How Mort Garson Inspired Nightmare City Halloween

This is the album that started it all for me!

In 1973 I worked at "Scream In The Dark", Tulsa's ultimate Halloween haunted house attraction. Every night, all night long, the most incredible music played throughout the entire house. It was a cassette tape, looping the album "Black Mass" by Lucifer (Mort Garson), an incredible electronic music tour de force. I thought it was the most incredible music I had ever heard and that's when my love of Halloween music was born.

1. Solomon's Ring
2. The Ride Of Aida (Voodoo)
3. Incubus
4. Black Mass
5. The Evil Eye
6. Exorcism
7. The Philosopher's Stone
8. Voices Of The Dead (The Medium)
9. Witch Trial
10. ESP

Composed by Mort Garson.

Disney Forever - Haunted Mansion - Deluxe Edition

I have collected together all of the Haunted Mansion tracks available from the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Forever kiosks. Much thanks to the creators of the Forever Project for these great tracks!

Original recordings February to April 1969, unless otherwise indicated.

Disneyland Forever:

Track 1:
Haunted Mansion, "Foyer Music" 1:59 MONO

• This track contains two loops of the music Guests hear when entering the Haunted Mansion building. This track was originally known as "Organ Music." The track was available on Walt Disney World Forever as Haunted Mansion, "Grim Grinning Ghosts" (Foyer Music).

Track 2:
Haunted Mansion, "Doom Buggy Boarding Music" 2:00 MONO

• This track contains two loops of the boarding music. The track was available on Walt Disney World Forever as Haunted Mansion, "Grim Grinning Ghosts" (Doombuggy Boarding Music).

Track 3:
Haunted Mansion, "Ballroom Organ" 2:00 MONO

• This track contains two loops of the organ heard in the Haunted Mansion scene technically known as the Grand Hall, but commonly referred to as the Ballroom. The room's organ was used in the 1954 Disney film "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" and appeared in the Tomorrowland exhibit. This track was originally known as Haunted Mansion, "Pipe Organ." The track was available on Walt Disney World Forever as Haunted Mansion, "Grim Grinning Ghosts" (Ballroom).

Track 4:
Haunted Mansion, "Graveyard Music" 1:47 MONO

• This is an instrumental music bed of "Grim Grinning Ghosts" heard throughout the Graveyard. The original release played the loop slightly more than twice; a May 1999 revision cleaned it up.

Track 5:
Haunted Mansion, "Exit Crypt Music" 1:59 MONO

• These two tracks contain the exit music (to the tune of "Grim Grinning Ghosts"). This May 1999 revision eliminates the Little Leota "Hurry back…" exit narration.

Track 6:
Haunted Mansion, "Full Show" 1 of 4 (unreleased) 4:15 MONO

• The track contains music, narration, and sound effects from the Foyer through the load area.

Track 7:
Haunted Mansion, "Full Show" 2 of 4 (unreleased) 5:47 MONO

• The track contains music, narration, and sound effects from the load area to the Grand Hall.

Track 8:
Haunted Mansion, "Full Show" 3 of 4 (unreleased) 5:34 STEREO

• The track contains music, narration, and sound effects from the Grand Hall through the Graveyard.

Track 9:
Haunted Mansion, "Full Show" 4 of 4 (unreleased) 5:36 STEREO

• The track contains music, narration, and sound effects from the Graveyard through the unload area, but not does contain the Little Leota "Hurry back…" exit narration.

• The above four tracks are an older flow-through of the Haunted Mansion than that created for the "Haunted Mansion 30th Anniversary" CD.

Track 10:
Haunted Mansion, "Graveyard Music" (original release) 2:04 MONO

• The track was available on Walt Disney World Forever as Haunted Mansion, "Grim Grinning Ghosts" (Graveyard).

Track 11:

• This track was originally known as "Grim Grinning Ghosts." A similar version of the track was available on Walt Disney World Forever as Haunted Mansion, "Grim Grinning Ghosts" (Doombuggy Exit Music). In the WDWF track, Little Leota is heard first (as she is in the WDW attraction); here, the voice of Leota Toombs follows the music loop.

Walt Disney World Forever:

Track 12:
Haunted Mansion, "Foyer Music" 1:56 MONO

Track 13:
Haunted Mansion, "Doom Buggy Boarding Music" 1:57 MONO
