The Vampires of Dartmoore - Dracula's Music Cabinet (1969)

Hello everybody. It's been awhile since I've checked in with my blog. I've noticed a lot of comments about problems with Zshare links. So for those of you who have been requesting updated links or reposts, I'm working on that. Sorry to keep you waiting so long. I know how crappy it is when you search for something forever, and come across it only to find a dead link. So, I've been updating my posts with Mediafire links. I hope that works for you all. All the links that have been updated should read "NEW LINK!" in the title post. So thanks for everyone who's been downloading my mixes etc.. It's always nice to get some feed back.

Anyway, Enough business for now. I realized I haven't posted anything new in a while, so here is a record I hope you will enjoy (and don't already have). I got inspired to post it when I was reposting the Vampires Sound Incorporation record (Amazing!) Here is another Vampire themed German band that oddly came out the same year as the Vampires Sound Incorporation... 69 Erotic Year (sorry, I couldn't resist). I don't know much about them really, but I've read things here and there. Supposedly, they were one of those bands made up of all studio musicians and the album was intended to be a Soundtrack (but it never happened). At least that's what I've heard. Feel free to post some info in the comments if you know anything about it. Anyway, the music is pretty interesting actually. Similar to the Vampyros Lesbos sound, but more of a lo-fi Sven Libaek thing happening. All the tracks are pretty psychedelic with lots of overdubbed sound effects for an over all more dramatic horror/halloween type of vibe. I still think it sort of belongs in the realm of the mondo cocktail cinema grooves type of stuff though (rather than spooky holiday records). Check it out, it's pretty entertaining and has an unusual sound quality. 192 Kbps. Just over a half hour...

Enjoy your horror TRIP!
