Ghouls with Attitude, Volume 2

Here's the second release in Oddio Overplay's Halloween assemblage.  Once again, this is a fine compilation that is no longer available on their own site!

I've added some disc art.

These are the songs:

1) Billy DeMarcus - Drac's Back
2) Movie Trailer - Ghost In The Invisible Bikini
3) Peter Pan Singers - Theme to Casper the Friendly Ghost
4) The Creatures - Mostly Ghostly
5) Tyrone A' Saurus & his Cro-Magnons - The Monster Twist
6) Mann Drake - Vampire's Ball
7) Movie Trailer - The Return of Count Yorga
8) The Hamburger Brothers - Omar The Vampire
9) The Zanies - The Mad Scientist
10) The Cool Ghoul - You Can't Ghoul Me
11) Ted Cassidy - The Lurch
12) The Detergents - Igor's Cellar
13) The Milton the Monster Show - Theme Song
14) Movie Trailer - Graveyard Tramps
15) Cathy Mills - Monster Hop
16) Glen Ryle - Wolf Gal
17) Movie Trailer - Dr. Jeckyl and Sister Hyde
18) Ralph Marterie and His Marlboro Men - Alfred Hitchcock Presents
19) Lois Prante Ellis and Mary Ann Parker - Troll At The General Meeting
20) Jimmy Cross - I Want My Baby Back
21) Count Baltes & The Egors - Opening The Coffin
22) Sounds of Terror! - The Exorcism
23) Al Zanino - The Vampire Speaks

There is one mistake in this listing (which is the same as the liner).  Track 4, "Mostly Ghostly," is NOT by "The Creatures."  I don;t know what "The Creatures" is, but ...

"Mostly Ghostly," and specifically THIS PERFORMANCE of it, is from the 1959 Monster Rally album.  This great disc is performed by two giants of characterization:  Hans Conried (the voice of Captain Hook in Disney's Peter Pan and the blustery Uncle Tonoose on the Danny Thomas Show);  and Alice Pearce, star of stage and screen (On the Town, 1949, and that nosy neighbor Gladys Kravitz on TV's Bewitched).  Ain't no "The Creatures" here.

Anyway, this aggregation of holiday silliness is lots o' fun.  Here is the link:

Later, Zombie Gator!
