I am a noob as of today! Before I make a request, I first want to thank everyone on this site for all their information and resources they have provided. I have been able to to really flesh out my "Halloween" music library with bands and musicians I would have never thought to listen to. I wish I would have discovered some of the Halloween sites that do not exist anymore since it sounds like they had lots of useful information. Now, on to my request.

Growing up in the 80's, every Halloween my mom would put on "Halloween At Home". This record was awesome because it had ghost stories about "The Tell-Tale Heart", "Headless Horseman", a story about a ghostly woman hitchhiker, and a phantom railroad signal man. I have been searching the net and torrents for an mp3 copy to add to my collection; I was lucky enough to score the copy of "Sounds To Make You Shiver" last year from Scar Stuff' (another record I listened to ever year growing up) before some of the links on that site became broken; it's actually Scar Stuff's fault that I have amassed a huge collection of OOP Halloween music and sound effects. Any help on this, aside from buying an LP copy from eBay and trying to find someone to rip it to mp3 would be EXTREMELY helpful, especially if a copy on CD exists that I could purchase.

Thank you in advance for you r help!

Awesome.

Thank you for your quick responses.

Hellowiener, that the is eBay one I was talking about - there's like 5 or six on eBay. I found a copy of "Wade Denning's Famous Ghost Stories" on MegaUpload. The narrator's on "Halloween At home" are different, but the stories are exactly same, including the sound effects and everything; the narrator's on Halloween At Home, as I remember, were a little more dramatic. Thanks a ton for pointing this one out to me. If you come across Halloween At Home, it will just be a bonus. I feel like a little kid again. Awe, memories.

I found the LP. I'll try to get it ripped this week sometime.

I'm also going to be listing it for sale on ebay. I'm selling off a bunch of my LP collection to make room for the 800+ LPs I just inherited from my Dad. Plus I need some quick cash to have some car work done. So if you're interested in it let me know before Tuesday when I'll be listing it. I will still be ripping the LP thought too. I always make copies of my LPs before I sell them off.

Thanks. Sorry I never got to doing a rip. I have my LP copy up for sale on ebay BTW.


Halloween At Home Fiendish Wailing Sounds LP


I just inherited my Dad's 1,000+ piece music collection. I have to have it out of his house by the end of October so I'm slowly selling off a lot of my own stuff to make room for his pieces.

no problem, i did it at work yesterday (don't tell my boss). i always thought the sound of the vinyl with it's pops and hiss made scary records even scarier when i was a kid.

Turns out everything on this album was borrowed from Wade Dennings "Famous Ghost Stories with Scary Sounds" from 1975 and Pickwick's "Monster Mash - Sounds of Terror!" from 1974. Still ... good stuff.

I stumbled across this forum while looking for a rip of it, also.
In my case, I bought the cassette version of the album waaaaay back in '82 or '83. The odd thing was that it was attached to the record album sleeve, with a cutout on front for the tape.
Anyway, I have made a rip of the tape to digital, and converted it to stereo.
I downloaded the LP rip from here and compared it to mine. While the LP rip has clearer voices, it has more static. Mine has a bit more muddy voices, sounding a bit slower, but far less static, and sadly has the ever-present cassette background.
If anyone wants a copy of it, I can find a file sharing site and upload it there.
This was my fave Halloween compilation as a kid, and wish it would get released digitally or someone could clean it up better than I.

I've been trying for a few years to find a decent rip of this album, but to no avail. The mp3's shared earlier in this post have some issues. The Dr. Jekyl one specifically isn't recognized and won't play on either of my computers. Any help getting to a clean and function download would be appreciated.
