Continuing the Halloween Spirit Through Tunes

On of the best blogs out there, WFMU's Rock and Soul Ichiban has put together a great collection of Halloween inspired tunes and playlists. 
They have crafted one dealing with ghosts which you directly download here. Another that tackles vampires and you can grab that one here directly as well. Both of these are fantastic and as always Ichiban gives us old songs that are brand new to us...and are also flat out awesome! I mean how could we have missed The Bar-Kay's "Holy Ghost" for all of these years?

Damn that is some funky stuff. WFMU Rock and Soul Ichiban always delivers the goods, but this year they got some help from their friends over at Fringe Factory who offered up a Halloween themed show themselves right here.

There isn't enough time in the day to hear all these great tunes that the people over there dig up, but we can always try to listen to it all. Here are a few songs that jumped out to us from these shows/free downloads:
The Pastel Six: "The Strange Ghost"

The Primates "The Creep"

The Upsetters "The Vampire"

Virgil Holmes "Ghost Train"
