Saturday, September 12, 2009 Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House!!


In 1962 Disney released "Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House" in glorious Monophonic. Sickie Ickie over at HauntForum had this LP for sale and I had to get it. Way too many hours of my youth were spent listening to this record on an old blue plastic clam-shell record player. In fact I hold this record responsible for my lifelong "Halloween kick" (as my family calls it).

It is cool to see that many folks hold an unhealthy fascination for this record. Check out the 3-D recreation of the album cover by Ray Keim over at Haunted Dimensions.

To listen to the tracks check out DavesWorld56 site.

There is something about listening to raw vinyl. The pops and clicks are something I have sorely missed.

Oh thanks for sharing this album! I remember so clearly listening to it with my best friend, and we thought we were so brave. :) Martha

OMG, yes, I had that album as a child and I haven't been able to find anything now that compares to the creepy sounds that were in that album. I will have to search one up for myself. Maybe that explains a lot of my passion for Halloween well and my Dad was always over the top for Halloween, lol.

It is good to see that this album resonates for others. The crackly vinyl and the musty jacket make it complete. Thanks for commenting!
