Like the 1964 Disney album, "Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House", this particular LP opens with a soundscape that takes place inside of a spooky house. Unlike the "Chilling, Thrilling" album, this particular track features creepy music to go along with the macabre sound effects. The rest of the album features the individual sound effects and the music from the opening track.
I must admit, I had forgotten all about this album until I met a man named Greg in a Halloween Facebook group who sent me an mp3 album. The moment that I heard that music on the first track, I suddenly remembered. Years ago, I purchased a cassette tape of this very album. I have long since misplaced that cassette, but I'm glad to know that I own it in some format! Thanks, Greg!
After doing a bit of research on The Haunted House Music Company, I found that they created at least two more albums - "Night in a Graveyard" and "The Ride of the Headless Horseman". I was able to acquire mp3 albums of those as well. You can tell that much love and hard work went in to each of these projects, and they are most definitely a product of the time in which they were released. They have that eighties retro quality that I just adore. You can find the vinyl albums on Ebay and Amazon.com - and I'm sure that you can find mp3 uploads on blogging sites.
In any case, I am the proud owner of each one of these little jewels. Just three more albums to add to an ever-growing collection!
Listen to the first track, entitled "Take a Trip Through the Haunted House If You Dare!"
