Countdown to Halloween Day 25 - Spooky Sounds

What would Halloween be without a few sound effect records? Probably pretty boring!
I used to obsess about collecting these but there's only so many you can have before you start losing track of what, if anything, makes one better than the other.
I've picked out a few from the collection at random to share with you today.

The first is from Sounds Records. This is one of three Halloween albums released by this company originally in 1962. It has a 4 minute "continuous" track and 9 other tracks which have the sound effects singled out. I'll be posting one of the others tomorrow which has some kicking theremin tracks.

Next is one from the BBC released in 1977. This one's also from a set of three but contains sound effects only. It sports a whopping 91 sound effects! And you have to appreciate that psychotropic, nightmare inducing cover!

They're waiting for you!

  1. Too bad you have to sign up to download 'em

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I wasn't aware of that! Now I know why I didn't use that site when I posted stuff last year. I reposted them so you won't have to sign up to download. On the page it goes to, click on the link that says Download Now at the bottom.
