Monster Shindig



There's your last Halloween record.
Further proof that everything on the Hanna Barberra label from this era was a winner.

Danny Hutton later went on to become one of the vocalists in Three Dog Night, and after briefly perusing his Wikipedia page, i also learned that he was the head of HBR in 1965/66.


Later this week- we're doing election coverage, Junk Shop Juke Box style. So stay tuned, i got a few odd and obscure ones queued up including old campaign records of yesteryear, from both winners and losers alike.

First, lets have this one though, shall we...
Enjoy!

Haunted House



Not to be confused with the fire breathing bass player of the 70s rock band Kiss. This here is a different Gene Simmons altogether.

A halloween classic.

Enjoy!

Inky Dinky Spider



Here's a rendition of a song that everyone knows. It's actually a pretty cool version. I'm a big fan of the layering, or adding new sounds every time the tune comes around, and the key changes.
Pretty cool production for what is essentially a kids record.
       
Enjoy!

Martian hop

Not really a monster song. Martians can still be scary though... Not spooky, but scary.

Maybe it's not a typical Halloween song, but it's a classic either way.

Enjoy!

Monsters of the midway



This one's about a Chicago sports ball team. It doesn't mean all that much to me for a few reasons:
First off I didn't live here in 1985 or 1940 so i'm not much of a Bears fan, and i don't remember the song. Secondly, i'm not much of a fan of the game so i'd rather sit and watch my fingernails grow than have to sit and watch it at all. I do like corny old records about it though.

Anyway it's got the word 'Monster' in the title...

Enjoy!

The legend of the ghost stage

I posted this one two summers ago when i first found it. I think it's worthy of a re-post for this October, seeing as how i'm doing monster (and otherwise spooky) records for the entire month...

Enjoy!

Clap for the Wolfman

Let's do all monster songs for the month of October shall we? I have a bunch that i've been saving for the occasion, including a few Martian/Flying saucer songs as well. Also, whilst perusing the 50 cent bins of my local record shop just the other day, i unearthed a few gems that i haven't even recorded yet, including one 1980s Monster/Chicago sports-ball 45. We'll also be celebrating a very special birthday later this month, so stay tuned for that as well...

Here's a mediocre b-side to get it going. The Wolfman we all know. Give him a hand, won't you..?

Enjoy!
