13 Days Till Halloween
Lost a few days in there … gotta get caught up!
Haunted House (1985)
From the Haunted House Music Company, 2 Crypt Way, Eerie USA. Cute. This one opens with a 13-1/2 minute music- and sound-filled “Trip Through the Haunted House” … witches cackles, eerie music, crashes and bangs, screaming. Lots of the same laughs, roars, etc. that I’ve heard on other old sound effects albums. Followed by shorter tracks of just the sound
17 Days Till Halloween
Oh man, I’m really running out of time. Still getting through these mashup CDs which are OK in small doses but more than one CD back-to-back is a little rough.
Monster Mash-Up - Texas Chainsaw Mashacre (2011)
I like all the cute titles for these mashup CDs… once they exhausted the path given by “Bride of” and “Son of” (no “Ghost of” or “Hand of”?), they’ve done a nice job since. This one (a 2 CD set) is more of the same
This isn't my usual fare here, but I love it so that I must post it. I'm usually only interested in pre-1960 vintage, but these are exceptional.
The song, Halloween, from the 1969 album, "Halloween: Games, Songs and Stories" by Kay and Wade Denning is a classic. The song H-A-LL-O-W-EE-N is well loved and was used in this beautifully rendered stop motion video.
What many do not know is that the tune is from 1875-
20 Days Till Halloween
Monster Party 2000 (2000)
This CD is stamped from the same mold as Hootenanny … spooky intro, cover tunes and originals, vocals and instrumentals. If it loses points for not getting Zacherley, it gets them back for the brilliant artwork. I really love the unexpected and brilliant rockabilly take on the theme from Young Frankenstein.

21 Days Till Halloween
Three more weeks. I have resigned myself to NOT making it all the way through my collection of Halloween sounds, but I do believe I’ll get through everything that ISN’T sound effects / sound atmospheres. And I’m actually OK with that. I haven’t listened to any Midnight Syndicate or Nox Arcana, I haven’t listened to my oldies or my rockabilly folders, and I’ve hardly touched the sound effects / sound atmospheres. The rest I’ve hit pretty hard.
