Buddy Baker - Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House [1964]

Player not supported?

What is there to say about this record beyond "Happy Halloween!"?

Actually lots of stuff, and not that.

If you looked at this cover you might think it's a record of spooky sounds, and you'd be half right. It is a record of sounds.

The A side uses narration to frame some decidedly non-spooky things into a sort- of-spooky story narrative but let's be honest. Track 2 is about a dynamite and then it explodes. Hissss... bang.

Track 3 is some non-spooky dog barks and track 5 is some non-spooky cat yowls.

Track 4 is just a tree falling down. Track 8 is water drip noises featuring old-timey casual racism!

The B side is just the noises from the A side without the narration.

Maybe it would be hard to fill up an entire LP with spooky sounds but actually i am pretty sure it wouldn't be that hard at all. I have no idea what is going on here.
