Countdown to Halloween Day 23 - Shock! Terror! Fear!

Today we're going to start dipping into the classic audio of our favorite holiday!
Also, it's kind of a lazy post because I'm a bit under the weather today.

First up, is Frankie Stein and His Ghouls released on Power Records.
A total of five LPs were released during 1964-1965, this is their second: Shock! Terror! Fear!

The music is typical of the 60's surf/dance rock  that was cranked out to appeal to that generation of Monster Kids with horror sounds added to make them a bit creepier. Each of the song titles lets you know the type of dance it goes with such as watusi, twist, etc. so you know which moves to bust out!
