APPLE BOBBING MIX DESCRIPTION


Apple Bobbing Mix

Virtual Maxi EP x 9 tracks

12 Pages of downloadable illustrated notes

With a 171 million Americans alone expected to take part on Halloween in 2017, it is certainly a popular festival with fascinating roots that simply cannot be ignored by those with an interest in Blues, Jazz or Old Timey Music.

Document Records presents a strictly time-limited digital maxi EP that looks at the roots of Halloween in music and song. The modern Halloween is a fusion of Celtic, Christian and African cultures and beliefs.

Our Apple Bobbing mix with its 12 pages of downloadable illustrated notes reveal the roots of Halloween from the ancient Celts to the Day of the Dead to the influences of Hoodoo and Voodoo. It brings together nine great tracks that might surprise you from Old Timey to Robert Johnson and beyond.

The EP and notes are only available from our website and will be deleted entirely on the 5th of November making them a collector's item… which in itself goes back to the roots of Document!

For your spooky pleasure.

Black American music has long been associated with both Hoodoo, and in the Caribbean and parts of Louisiana, Voodoo. There are many references to the Hoodoo Man, or Hoodoo Lady, who would cast a spell for you, or supply you with a ‘Conjure Bag’, a ‘Mojo Hand’ or other charms to do the same. The ‘Black Cat Bone’, the ‘John The Conqueror Root’, or the Voodoo ‘Gris Gris. Sometimes to give you power over money, or other powers, but almost always to give you control of the opposite sex.

With this stuff, you could become The Hoochie Coochie Man!

A treatise could be written about the cultural meanings of Hoodoo and Voodoo in Blues lyrics and indeed Catherine Yronwode’s ‘HOODOO IN THEORY AND PRACTICE - An Introduction to African-American Rootwork’ is a highly recommended read. She says “Hoodoo consists of a large body of African folkloric practices and beliefs with a considerable admixture of American Indian botanical knowledge and European folklore. Although most of its adherents are black, contrary to popular opinion, it has always been practised by both whites and blacks in America. Other regionally popular names for hoodoo in the black community include "conjuration," "conjure," "witchcraft," "rootwork," and "tricking."

Whichever term you use, Hoodoo or Voodoo, this CD is packed with a diverse selection of great performances from the stars, and journeymen of Blues, R & B and Jazz. A scary musical must for your Halloween Night…

POSTER DESCRIPTION


Poster size 18" x 24"

In September 1926 Elgar's Creole Orchestra went into the studio in Chicago  and recorded a number of tracks. Nightmare was one of them  and it was released on Vocalion. Vocalion decided to promote it by way of an advert and this is the result. A great example of 1920s Graphic Art. An ideal Halloween or Holiday gift for any vintage music lover.
