Musical Monday - The Munsters: The Newest Teen-Age Singing Group

Even though the cast of TV's The Munsters are featured on the cover of the album, this is actually the music of a manufactured teen rock'n'roll group made to capitalize on the Munster craze.

Here is the track list:

1) Munster Creep

2) Frankenstein Had a Hot Rod Car
3) $1.98 King-Size Voodoo Kit
4) Vampire Vamp
5) Herman’s Place
6) (Here Comes the) Munster Koach
7) TV Monster Show
8) Eerie Beach
9) Make It Go Away
10) You Created a Monster
11) Ride the Midnight Special
12) Down in the Basement

Besides the CD art, I have also included an article from Variety  about the group.  Evidently they would play concerts wearing Munster character masks!

That sure sounds like a sweaty endeavor.

Here is the link:

Enjoy some silly, creepilicious 1960s music.
