Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Satan Take an Unholy Day

I might be gone for a few days. I'm taking a holiday with Satan.

Even the Devil needs a little revitalizing now & again. Anton LaVey here applies his kaleidoscopic vision to conjure forth occult musical treasures, sending them out into the æthers, to haunt & delight us. With his background in classical, burlesque, circus, & roadhouse styles of playing, LaVey uses modern synthesizer technology for illegal purposes---to evoke feelings. The murky deathless halls of Tartarus resound with songs of suicide, strained gaiety, & unreserved romance. Dim the lights, settle back, & let His Infernal Majesty take you on a holiday tour of His world…

Remakes of classic old songs, mastered with the unique touch of Anton Lavey & his Unholy Organ. "Band Organ Medley" contains "Money in My Clothes", "Taboo", "Giovanni" & "Yankee Rose". Additional vocal help by Blanche Barton on "Blue Prelude" & "Satan Takes a Holiday 2" & Nick Bougas (tracks 4, 7, 11, 14, & 15).

  2. I used to live a few blocks away from LaVey's Victorian house was located, but it had just been torn down when I moved there (in the Richmond district of SF). Later, they built some lame, yuppie condo on the spot and it was weird to see a modern building where once a pure black structure of significance (historical and cultural) once stood. Somebody painted a pentagram on the garage door, which made me smile with satisfaction.

    Thanks for sharing this album!

    1. Yeah, the Black House. Back in 1999, when I was still living in San Jose, a friend & I broke in to the abandoned structure. It was trashed inside & there was nothing really worth saving. We took some pieces of wood & some rotten cloth as mementos. Then I heard it was demolished around 2001??? Glad someone tagged the garage with appropriate design. Too bad no one wanted to save the place. It was built right before the !906 tragedy in SF, I believe.
