After something of a hiatus, Podcast 598 marks the return to Straight no Chaser of another set of Spooky Songs for Hallowe’en. Some years I’ve focused on a theme (2014 had a Devils theme), and other years it’s just been a grab bag of musical tricks and treats. If you are interested in checking out previous year’s selections for a Hallowe’en soundtrack, you can download Podcasts 452387 309 , and 240 . 

Here’s hoping all your candy is chocolate, your tricks are few, and your treats many. Musical selections include the very spooky:

Nina Simone - "I Put a Spell On You"

Jackie McLean - "Frankenstein"

Albert Ayler - "Ghosts"

Rosemary Clooney - "The Wobblin' Goblin"

Troy Roberts - "Trick or Treat (Featuring Jeff Tain Watts, Silvano Monasterios & Chris Smith)"

Medeski, Martin & Wood - "Dracula"

Dom Minasi - "The Vampire's Revenge"

Dick Jacobs & His Orchestra - "The Horror of Dracula"
