In Search of My Perfect Halloween...The Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House

I got this record when I was a kid, I don't think I was even 10 years old yet.

I still have it. It's at my mom's house. She has a turn table and I listened to it with my son a few months ago. He thought the "Chinese Water Torture" was sooo politically incorrect and, it probably is but, remember I got this record decades ago. This record means Halloween to me. When I got a little older I would darken the house and play the record when kids came for trick or treating. It would scare the crap out of them! I love the noises of the creaking house and howls and screams....AAHHHHH! What memories! When I listened to this record it meant Halloween was just around the corner and I had better start thinking of a costume. Hmmm, what to be this year?

  1. I have a collection of cd's with Sounds and Music for Halloween, similar to yours that I love to play while I'm decorating the house and crafting Halloween things!

    The scarier the better :D
