Merry Christmas everyone!  This year's mix is a lot less elaborate than in the past.  This year I have had a lot less free time to work on the mix.  I sort of feel bad about it, but at least I got something put together.  Even without all the bells and whistles I am posting this much later than usual. 

As per usual, the tracks are listed on the artwork.  Files are in the iTunes format, so if you'd like them as MP3s, simply use iTunes to convert them.

Enjoy!

Here it is, the 2017 Halloween Mix.  There is a lot of film music this year.  I've also dropped in a handful of trailers for sequels, including the trailer for season 2 of Stranger Things.  The Comic-Con trailer with Thriller could have just worked on it's own, but I thought I'd do a little editing and layer in some other music.  I also grabbed a piece of Vincent Price dialogue from the Thriller session outtakes.  I think the enhancements worked out pretty good and it all gets me super excited for season 2. 

Tracks are listed in the artwork.

I finally had a little time this weekend to throw together a mix of tracks I've been digging on.    It is a hodgepodge of genres and eras.  There isn't too much rhyme or reason to the mix and I admit that laziness right up front.  It truly is just some tracks I've liked in the last year.

Tracks are listed in the artwork.

It is Christmas time and that means Christmas music.  Start annoying your coworkers with this years selection of yuletide ditties.  Or keep the holiday cheer to yourself within the privacy of your own headphones.  In preparing for this year's mix I've been in the Christmas music zone since September, when I started digitizing some of this year's record purchases.  This year I didn't keep a strict vinyl only rule.  It was back to the old eclectic mix of grabbing music from all sorts of sources, CDs, digital files, records, youtube, etc.  Tracks as always are listed on the artwork so you can take a quick peak at what lies in store.  Enjoy!

This Spring has been very busy and I wasn't even sure if things would ever let up enough for me to throw together a mix for the summer.  Well things did die down this weekend and so I combed through a bunch of the music I've been listening to recently.  You'll notice a heavy emphasis on soundtracks.  Maybe this will turn some people onto some new artists.  Enjoy!

SAP Music Christmas Mix 2015

2015-11-27T06:57:00.528-08:00

For this year's Christmas mix I committed to only using music I personally digitized from my vinyl record collection.  So there isn't anything really too recent on the mix.  The movie clips are absent as well.  But there is a lot of pops and crackles and charm to committing to vinyl.  The challenge of course was to still try and find some variety.  So many Christmas records are the same old public domain songs.  It is harder to find original tunes.  I have a big Christmas record collection, but because I have used so many tunes in the past from my collection, the number of unused original Christmas songs is getting smaller and smaller.  So there are some of the traditional Christmas songs on here, but I tried to find versions that perhaps are a little less known, but still fun.

I am really excited about this year's Halloween mix, which is partly why I am posting it so early this year.  I just can't wait to share it.  While I don't really have an "original" track this year, I do have some cool samples and a lot more spooky music.  I have been listening to a lot of scores in the last 6 months or so.  So when I started pulling together the mix back in July I had a whole lot of instrumentals or film score music than usual set aside for the mix.  This sort of forced me to find more dialogue and samples than usual.  So that makes this year's mix a little different and I like the results.

A couple instrumentals I really like from Van Halen and Black Sabbath.  I like them, because these are the kinds of tracks that a listener wouldn't immediately identify with these bands.  While Black Sabbath seems like a no brainer for a Halloween mix, I pulled something from "Born Again" which is a different sort of Sabbath record and not one I listen to very often.  With that said this past summer I gave that record a few listens and I sort of fell in love with it, hence the inclusion here.  "The Dark" sounds like some weird avant-garde experimental track.

The Van Halen pull I think is pretty great because Halloween or scary music is not what comes to mind when I think of Van Halen.  I think of So Cal party band or the Sunset Strip.  However the track I pulled is nothing like that.  I think "Sunday Afternoon In The Park" would fit in perfectly well in a zombie movie for instance.  Give it a listen and see what you think.

All tracks a listed on the artwork.  Enjoy and happy Halloween.

Here it is the SAP Music Halloween Mix 2014.  I had some fun with this one this year.  That isn't to say that I don't have fun every year, but I had some extra fun with all the movie and trailer clips this year.  As per usual, I have one sort of original track, which just means that I have created something from existing samples.  Track 18 has clips from Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman over an MC 900 ft. Jesus track that I edited down.  I'm happy how it came out.  The rest of the tracks you can read on the artwork that is provided.  Have fun everyone and happy Halloween!

This post is very late, but I figure better late than never.  I meant to get this mix out for Valentine's Day, but life just got in the way.  Between sickness and just being busy it just didn't happen.  Well this weekend I finally was able to pull this all together.

This year's mix is an eclectic mix as usual.  Also as per usual you can check the track listing on the image.

Come On Ring Those Bells - 1975

2013-12-17T04:58:30.671-08:00

(image)
I am not really too sure who the "A Reason To Sing" television family is or was, but I am guessing that it has something to do with a Christian TV show or television network from the 70's.  I'm gathering that from the group names like "New Life" and Jericho Brass." Most of these songs definitely focus on the Christ part of Christmas and not so much on the man in the big red suit.  That is fine by me.  I think you have to have both.  This record has something beyond just the traditional carols and some good arrangements which is why I like it.  There is also a thin layer or 70's cheese on these tracks as well that I find enjoyable as well.  "Go Tell It On The Mountain" is a virtual cheese fondue of 70's goodness.  Reminds me of the effervescence of the Up With People choir from the 70's. "Christmas Shopping" is also an extra cheesy gem.  It may even cross the line into comedy it is so happy.  I can picture this song being performed on some super white bread show like Lawrence Welk with lots of teeth and smiles.  It also brings to mind perhaps an SCTV parody making fun of this whole wholesome genre, except this is genuine and not ironic.  To me that makes it all the more better.  So give the songs a listen.  They'll brighten up your holiday season.

01 Come On, Ring Those Bells - T.A.C.T. Singers and New Life
02 The Secret Of Christmas - Reflection
03 The Christmas Song - Jericho Brass
04 Do You Hear What I Hear_ - Jerry Nelson and New Life
05 O, Little Town Of Bethlehem - Brotherhood II
06 Go Tell It On The Mountain - New Life
07 O, Holy Night - Lee Stalling and Daybreak
08 Where Has He Gone_ - T.A.C.T. Singers
09 Christmas Shopping - Brotherhood III and Reflection
10 Hark, The Herald Angels Sing - Jericho Brass
11 Everybody Will Be Praisin' The Lord - Keith Showalter and New Life

Broadway Records - Christmas Songs - 1968

2013-12-16T07:07:00.254-08:00

(image)
My favorite thing about this record is the caption at the bottom of the cover that says "vocals and orchestration by popular radio and television artists".  I love it because nowhere on the record does it ever tell you who those artists are.  I guess we are supposed to use our imagination as to who those "popular radio and television artists" are.  So I've just listed the artist as Broadway Records.  The second thing I love about the record is the cover artwork.  I have this hanging in my hallway this year I love it so much.  The music is not bad, but it isn't great either.  Generic is probably the best word to describe it.  It covers all the standard Christmas selections.  Nothing new or original.  Still not bad for a spin.  The tracks are:

01 Joy To The World
02 Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
03 O Little Town Of Bethlehem
04 It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
05 O' Come All Ye Faithful
06 Deck The Halls With Holly
07 God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
08 Good King Wenceslas
09 Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
10 Jingle Bells
11 Auld Lang Syne
12 Oh Tennenbaum
13 12 Days Of Christmas
14 Silent Night
15 The First Noel

Guitars Inc. - Guitars At Christmas - 1959

2013-12-15T07:28:00.043-08:00

(image)
I picked up this record this past year.  I honestly can't remember if I bought it or if it was one of the many records that were given to me this year.  I'm leaning toward buying it.  Guitars Inc. was a group of studio guitar players here in LA back in the day.  From what I've read, they were some of the better musicians.  The group consisted of Al Hendrickson, Howard Roberts, Bobby Gibbons, Tommy Tedesco & Bill Pitman.  This is a very fun instrumental record.  The arrangements are light and playful.  I will be using some of these tracks in Christmas mixes in the future for sure.


Enjoy!

Bielefelder Kinderchor - Christmas In Germany - 1965

2013-12-14T07:18:00.706-08:00

(image)
Have you been asking yourself how come I don't have more German music at Christmas?  Well I've got a record for you.  This is a record of German choir Christmas music.  It is all very traditional choir music.  I personally don't speak any German so I don't understand any of the lyrics, but I do recognize a few of the melodies.  Surprisingly, though, there is no "Oh Tannenbaum" which may be one of the more famous German carols.  That is okay, you can find that on many records.

My basic internet research pegged the date of this record at 1965.  The previous owner of the record wrote on the front and the back "about 1960."  I find it funny how it was just not the practice to put dates on old records.  I don't know what the thinking was, but it sure makes writing about these records years later a little more challenging.

Most of the tracks are a children's choir.  At least that is what I gather from the photo on the back and my basic German translation that assumes Kinderchor means children's choir.    The track listing can be read on the photo of the back jacket.

All in all the record is okay.  It works if you are in the mood for the more traditional sounds of Christmas.  None of these tracks will liven up a Christmas party, though.  The record isn't pristine, but I've cleaned it up the best I can with what I've got.

Enjoy!

The Three Suns - The Sound Of Christmas - 1955

2013-12-13T02:37:00.214-08:00

(image)
I first became acquainted with The Three Suns back in the 90's when the whole lounge music thing saw a resurgence.  I bought a bunch of different lounge music compilations and then over the years I have picked up many of those artists on vinyl.  The Three suns have a bit of a cheese factor that is the product of the 50's.  They have applied a layer of that same cheesey goodness to some Christmas standards.  What I love about their approach is that even though this are songs you have heard a thousand times before, they put in plenty of surprises in their arrangements.  The music is playful and keeps you guessing.  I think their versions of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" are a good example of this.  This is a record I just picked up this year and it has already worked its way into some regular rotation.  I won't be surprised if one or two of these tracks end up on a Christmas mix in the future.


Enjoy!

The Pixie Helpers And Santa Claus - Sing Along With Santa's Helpers - 1959

2013-12-12T02:27:02.521-08:00

(image)
As you can see by the images this was a kids' record at some point. The crayons are a dead give away that this record was loved.  When you hear it you'll hear that the record is a little trashed as well.  It is still very listenable and fun.  I also love the artwork.   The album takes on the guise that the songs are being sung by Santa and his "Pixie Helpers."  In reality what that means is a chipmunk style record knock off.  So if you like that sort of thing, then this is the record for you.  The funny thing to me is that it sounds like whoever the real artists are, they didn't really have the whole chipmunk thing down.  Some of the dialogue and singing is really measured and not very natural.  I think this is because the speaking and singing had to be done slow and then sped up which is an unnatural process.  I assume that the producers of this record saw the success of the chipmunks and thought it would be easy to replicate.  This record shows that it wasn't.  It isn't a total disaster, but it isn't the chipmunks.


Enjoy!

Claremont High School - Christmas Gems

I picked this record up at a thrift store some time earlier this year.  I love rolling the dice with these high school or college choir albums.  They seemed to have been quite popular in the late 60's and 70's.  This one I think is particularly good not only in the quality of the performance, but the record is in pretty good shape as well.

SAP Music Christmas Mix 2013

2013-11-29T07:30:02.011-08:00



It is the Christmas season once again which of course means it is time for this year's Christmas Mix.  Every year I wonder if I am going to run out of songs or movie clips and every year I seem to be able to find a fresh new crop of songs to go together.  This year I started the mix nice and early.  I began searching youtube for audio clips several months ago so that when it came time to do the mix I had plenty to choose from.  I am particularly happy with some of the clips this year.  The music is as always an eclectic mix of traditional and nontraditional songs.  There is a mix of secular and religious as well as serious and comedic.  There are some good mash-ups this year.  There aren't any that I can take credit for.  I wasn't that ambitious.  Merry Christmas and enjoy!

SAP Music - Fahrenheit 3000 Opening Mixes

2013-10-10T17:53:39.453-07:00

(image)
At work the some of the artists have pulled together a bar.  Every Thursday after work they hold a happy hour.  Originally they called the bar Fahrenheit 399.  The 399 came from the cubicle number of the guy who pulled it all together and the bar was next to his cubicle.  The Fahrenheit came from the simple fact that the bar that they bought had flames on it so they went for a Farhenheit 451 theme.  Well recently the department had to move to another area on the floor, which meant that the bar had to move.  The cubicle and office numbers in the new location are all in the 3000s so the new bar is to be named Fahrenheit 3000.  The new location is actually a larger communal location so they are spending some time and money making this bar even better.  I was asked to pull together some music for the upcoming grand opening party.  So that is the reason for this mix of music.  I pulled together two discs worth of music.  The first disc is based around the themes of fire and drinking.  The second disc is just some songs that I thought might be nice at the party, which really just means they are some songs I've been liking recently.  So hopefully you'll have fun with this collection.

SAP Music Morricone Halloween 2013

2013-10-02T06:50:00.612-07:00

(image)
As promised here is my grand experiment for this year.  I had the idea actually a few years ago when I was listening to a lot of Ennio Morricone soundtracks.  I found so many creepy and scary songs and I thought it was interesting because scary and creepy isn't what I think about when I think of Morricone.  Of course everyone thinks of the spaghetti westerns and some of his great Hollywood work later in the 80's and 90's.  However he does have such a huge catalog that he has a bunch of scary tracks as well.  So I decided to make a mix of just his scores.  Some of the tracks are layered over each other creating something entirely new.  So hopefully you like this.  It works great if you want to just have some Halloween mood music for an hour or so.  This stuff will get you unsettled. 

Enjoy!

SAP Music Halloween Mix 2013

2013-10-01T18:40:37.172-07:00

(image)
It is that time of year again to get out the spooky and creepy music for one of my favorite holidays.  I'm not actually big on the whole dressing up thing, but I love all the decorations.  I love breaking out my Universal Monster movies.  And I love the music.  This year I challenged myself with the task of making two mixes.  This being the first of the two.  This is most like mixes from the past.  One thing I didn't really get to this year was any sort of really original mix or mashup.  There are some minor mixing of tracks to make something new, but not to the extent that I have done in the past.  I used that extra time to make the second mix which I will be posting soon.  As per usual you can read the track names on the images.  You can see the selections are eclectic as usual.  Many tracks aren't traditionally Halloween oriented, but there is something about the songs that can relate to the season.  They are either dark in theme or creepy in their lyrics for instance.

Enjoy!
