It's Spooky is a collaborative album by Jad Fair (of the band Half Japanese) and Daniel Johnston. It was first released in 1989 on 50 Skidillion Watts Records, under the title Jad Fair and Daniel Johnston, and contained 25 songs on its cassette and CD versions, but only 20 on the LP. In 2020, Joyful Noise Recordings released a 30th Anniversary edition of 1,500 copies of a double LP on "Casper white" vinyl, remastered by Kramer, with the additional song "Ashes on the Ground" (originally by Half Japanese, from their album The Band That Would Be King), a 7" flexidisc of Johnston's "I Live My Broken Dreams," which was previously unreleased, and new liner notes by Fair, Kramer, Everett True and Jeff Feuerzeig. Joyful Noise has also made it available for download, but not including "Broken Dreams." Although receiving praise from critics and fans alike, the record was commercially overlooked. Both Johnston and Fair play the majority of instruments, including vocals, guitars, piano, keyboards and drums.
