Famous Ghost Stories Album

Famous Ghost Stories (with scary sounds)

When I was an impressionable young lad I remember I really loved scary stuff. As with many kids, Halloween was my favorite time of year! I don’t remember when my parents picked up this great record but I practically wore it out! I loved listening to this gem often before going to sleep. I had a children’s type record player in my room and I’d throw on a side, then race to the safety of my bed to hear all these great ghost stories. The stories don’t hold back whatsoever. Gory, scary, horribly frightening? For a 7 year old, absolutely! When this was released in 1975 it wasn’t a sugarcoated baby record. You had to be a brave kid to play this record after dark; I’m telling you! Man, being a kid in the 70’s was awesome!

Since finding them again on Facebook, I treat my girlfriend to a few stories every once in a while. Especially this time of year! I really love that eerie ghostly moan that transitions in and out of every story. Spooky Good!!! She hates it which makes it even better….
