Spike Jones in Stereo (also known as Spike Jones in Hi-Fi and A Spooktacular in Screaming Sound) (1959) is a horror-comedy album by musical-satirist Spike Jones. Unlike his previous recordings, which make fun of genres such as Christmas and classical music, Spike Jones in Stereo sends-up everything from horror movies to the hit T.V show This is Your Life, which Jones pokes fun at in the track "This is Your Death".
Making a notable guest appearance on the album is Paul Frees, who plays the voice of Dracula, Professor Lud Wig Van Drake and one of the heads on the two headed monster. Other recognisable voices such as Loulie Jean Norman (as Vampira), Thurl Ravenscroft, and George Rock (the voice on Jones's only number one hit "All I Want for Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth)") also give stand out performances, bringing to life Jones’s already spooktacular music.
Most of the tracks on Spike Jones in Stereo do not appear on his many compilation albums ("I Only Have Eyes For You" and "My Old Flame" being the only two), but it’s still considered among his finest post City-Slickers efforts.
