Gene "Bowlegs" Miller
Frankenstein Walk
Hi - 2161
1969
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...

Hey, I had that "Monster" thing. Bought it for a dollar from the back of a comic book. Excitedly waited for it to come in the mail, only to find out it was simply a seven feet long poster. I was one pissed 10 year old.

Wait, I think I've told this one before...

BTW, the "authentic colors" were exactly two: green on white. Grrr.

Great share!

Is there any chance that you'll post the 1st annual Jukeboxmafia Halloween CD (since you're in the midst of creating the 2nd)?
