elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

Elvira's Vinyl Macabre

Found this great release of Halloween faves from Elvira over at Vinnie Rattolle's Records. Vinnie also has two more collections from the "temptress of the turntable" over there, too. "Vinyl Macabre" includes some true Halloween classics like the "Munsters theme" and "Purple People Eater" but this isn't a generic compilation by any means. There are some really obscure little ditties on this vinyl rip (or should I say R.I.P., haha!). The Shaggs' "It's Halloween" and Jim Parkers' "The Vegas Vampire" are definitely worth a listen. Of course, the whole thing is narrated by the Mistress of the Dark, herself, and no one can quite set the mood like Elvira.
