Gene "Bowlegs" Miller
Hi - 2161
I figured I had better get this one up quick before any of my fellow bloggers had a chance to beat me to it. This is my absolute favorite Halloween 45 and one of my favorite 45s period. At the time I found this I had no idea who Gene "Bowlegs" Miller was, but the title was too great to resist. Of course when I listened to it, I stood with my mouth hanging open, not believing what I was hearing. I have since learned that Bowlegs Miller was a Hi records staffer and had a few one off singles of his own, of which this is one. Truly astounding...

Tyrone A'Saurus and his Cro-Magnons
The Monster Twist
Here's another offering from the Halloween bin. This misunderstood monster (all he wants to do is twist, after all) attacks the world and is ultimately defeated by the sounds of Lawrence Welk!

The Rockin' Ghost
Cadence 1293 - 1956
I am going to try my best to make some time this month to post some of my halloween 45s. In the meantime here is a repost from early in this blog's history. Quite excellent.
