"Hallowe'en Spooky Sounds" 7"

I don't want the Halloween season to be over yet, so I'm going to keep it going with a bonus Freebie Fridays offering! It's a classic vintage 45 record that has been burning up my turntable ever since I scored it back in September.

Sounds Records' vintage novelty Halloween 45 from 1962 is your standard faire, with the usual storm, cats, dogs, footsteps, moaning, laughing and screaming sound effects. It's pretty lo-fi, but the thin, recorded-in-studio sound is what makes this release so great! Classic, silly Halloween spook sounds with classic Halloween sleeve art.

The funny thing about this release is that there seems to be two versions, most likely just label variations. One version has the classic spooky sounds listed on side one and "Storm with Rain and Spookie Sounds" on the second side. The version I have has a slightly different list of sound effects on side one and "Same with space between sound effects," on side two. Regardless, it's still a great little record and it will continue to get some spins on the turntable...
