Celtic Feast of the Dead
(words and music by Fritz Jung)

Cuttin Away
There's work to do
One final say
A chance to slip through
With Celtic friends
A season ends
Ten/thirty one
Has only just begun... Yea!

Lookin' Ahead
To future times
Veil's gone thin
you know it won't be long
So change what you dread
In the evening ahead
The courage to change
Your pretty little head
I will get through
I will find_you

On Samhain night
I'm gonna see ya real soon
Time feels right and
there's a Big Bat Yellow Moon
So before you go
Off to Appleland
Come celebrate !
The Celtic feast of the Dead

So talk to me
Here me say
You don't really die
you don't fade away
'Cause it ain't done
No it never is
Hold the sugar
Save it for the kids
I will get through
I will find you

On Samhain night
I'm gonna see ya real soon
Time feels right and
there's a big fat yellow moon
So before you go
Off to Appleland
Come celebrate !
The Celtic feast of the Dead

or October 2001, I am honored to offer a FREE mp3 tune entitled Celtic Feast of the Dead. As a Samhain baby (born 10/31/1952 - my mother blames herself for all of this - grin) this day has always had special meaning for me, in fact it brought me into this community.

My story...

Since I have been into recording and sound reinforcement most of life, many local bands would invite me to check them out at a club called "The Channel" in Boston. Not being a "club guy" and having played in clubs for many years, I had little desire to hang out in a club. Usually I would politely pass on this these offers, but on Labor Day in 1987 I didn't. That night was different and was to reveal a classic example of synchronicity (yes, Sting looted this from my "Unky Carl").

The Channel was packed that night with over 1,000 people and as I stood near the bar, my eyes connected with a beautiful blonde woman that was about 100 feet away. I had a strange sense that something very interesting was about to happen. In an almost trance like state, we simply walked towards each other without loosing eye contact. I said, "Hello, my name is Fritz"... She responded by saying, "It's wonderful to meet you Fritz, my name is Mari... they call me the pumpkin lady". My response? "My that's interesting, the pumpkin lady? Why do they call you that?"... She said that it was because she was born on Halloween. Hummmm, I thought... and said, "I don't believe you, may I see your license?" She had a puzzled look on her face but said sure, and took out her license. I used my lighter to read it in the dark club to my shock, when I looked at her date of birth; I saw the exact day that I was born on... Whoa... I knew then and there that this wasn't a coincidence and that something very special had just happened.

I looked at Mari and said "Wow! Do you want to see something that will blow you away? She balked nervously for a moment but said sure... I took out my license and handed it to her, she struggled to get it in the right light to read it and when she saw my date of birth she almost fainted... She paused, looked at me and stated "Oh My!"

Mari and I both knew we had just experienced something very magickal. Born on the same Samhain? 47 minutes apart from each other? Drawn together in a crowd of 1,000?

We spent the night chatting, connecting at many levels and agreed that we needed to get together again soon. That following weekend, we met and had dinner. Midway through the meal, she looked up at me said, out of nowhere, "Your a Witch!"... My response was a shocked, but curious, "I'm a what?"... She said, "Oh yes! And there is SO much I need to tell you"... And tell me she did. She made me aware of a wonderful spiritual movement that was happening all around me. Everything I had practiced and believed since I was a child all fell into place. Mari introduced me to many friends that I hold close to this day. I was a classic example of "I always knew I had a religion, I just never knew it had a name". I have been involved with the Neo-pagan movement since that very day.

For years, Mari and I met for breakfast on Samhain morning to celebrate our day of birth and our love for the latest Samhain treats from Hallmark. Our special bond will never be broken and it is with great pleasure that I dedicate this tune to her. I love you Mari, have a magickal Birthween!!!

The Tune: Recorded in my home studio in 1995, "Celtic Feast of the Dead" is a musical celebration of Samhain, that annual opportunity to communicate with the recently deceased (when the veil between the worlds is at it's thinnest). I do love the drum work on this track and crispness of the recording itself. Consisting of two acoustic guitar lines, a bass part, drum track and a few vocal tracks, I made the decision early on to keep this track pretty lean and to NOT overproduce it. I am happy with the way this track came out and am honored to offer it as my gift to you for Samhain 2001.

Wren, myself and the Witchvox staff wish you all a magickal Samhain and project that your magick will be for the good of all.

In Your Service,
