This is my second favorite Halloween record of all time (Frankenstein Walk by Gene "Bowlegs" Miller being the first) and embarrassingly has already appeared on this blog numerous times. But! It's just too good not to share again. Dig it and Happy Halloween!

Ghost Squad

The Tony Hatch Orchestra
Ghost Squad
London International - 10505

MP3 File
This tune lies a bit far toward the easy listening side of the scale than we usually prefer to go here at Jukeboxmafia, but it is kind of cool and a bit spooky and has the word ghost in the title, so here you go...

Halloween Nostalgia Trip

Haunted Mansion Storybook
Disneyland - 339

MP3 File
I found this Disneyland records read along disc a while back and it brought back some powerful memories. Anyone remember these? I love the artwork on this one, although I have to admit that the narration (by Robie Lester) is pretty boring. Cool sound effects at the end of side 2 though...
p.s. more halloween discs coming soon!
