Ghostly Sounds

sgsg

Tracks:

Even as a Power Records collector, this LP was one I never bothered with because, as far as I understood, there was no story--it's just random spooky sounds. Plus, it's a Peter Pan record, not a "Power", so even if it I saw it as a kid I probably would have turned my nose up at it, relegating it to "kiddie stuff." After all, I was listening to the truly scary stuff, like Man-Thing and The Monster of Frankenstein!

That said, Ghostly Sounds isn't too bad--there's some genuinely weird stuff, which could do the, er, trick for some of the younger set. Plus, check out that sleeve art, by the unfortunately-named George Peed! How this guy never ended up at Mad or (at the very least) Cracked...

I found these scans online, so I haven't had a chance to see what the inside looks like. Now that the blog is back, maybe if I can find it on eBay for the right price I'll pick it up. Halloween is coming, after all...

I remember seeing this cover as a kid. I never had it, but it intrigued me.

The Vampire on the front reminds me of both Lon Chaney in "London After Midnight", and Count Karnstein from "The Vampire Lovers".

The ogre in front happy because he got to be line-leader that day.

This record is in my Halloween mix folder which gets a lot of play this time of year.
