There's a whole bunch of spooky tunes here to get into…some obvious (like Depthcharge - Dead By Dawn), some for the heads (like Kings of Pressure - Tales from the Darkside and James Brown - Cold Blooded), some versions you might not have heard before (like Twonk's take on Thriller with some acapella handiwork and The Neptune's take on Sympathy), oddities (like Binster's (hello!) Ghouls and Ghosts refresh and the Rentaghost theme) and some out and out bangers (like The Scientist - The Exorcist and Silver Bullet - Bring Forth The Guillotine) all mixed up in a flavoursome styleeee. Enjoy!
