5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best LP's ever made... May 22, 2008
Format:Vinyl
I remember listening to this over and over and over when I was a kid. I've always been a huge Halloween buff, and this record is one of the reasons for that. The first track on side one entitled "The Haunted House" is amazing. The rest of the tracks are so fun to listen to. One of them may seem slightly inappropriate, considering how everyone is so PC these days. It is entitled "Chinese Water Torture". You can only imagine. Anyways, it is a must for those of us who collect LP's, and it is a Halloween tradition, atleast for myself, to listen to this thing at least fifty times every October. I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars This should be on CD!!! July 7, 2008
Format:Vinyl
I remember getting this on a LP in 1969, Great sound effects! Especially the cat fight, and the Ghost that was taken from the Lonesome Ghost Cartoon. BUT, Disney needs to put this out on CD!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A recognizable classic July 15, 2009
By Joker
Format:Vinyl
This vinyl album came out way back in 1964. I grew up listening to this album. I believe my family had the second release of this album, which came out in 1973 and is identical to the 1964 album, just with different packaging. This album has actually stood the test of time. It's a classic recording that should be recognizable to most people. The first side of the record is narrated by Laura Olsher and contains such classic tracks as The Haunted House, The Very Long Fuse, Timber, and The Unsafe Bridge. The second side is a collection of sound effects, some of which appear on the first side, but without narration.

If you can get your hands on a copy of this vinyl album it would be worth it. I burned my vinyl album to CD. This 1964 album isn't as good as the completely different 1979 album, in my opinion. The 1979 album has no narration whatsoever and some really scary "scenes" and sound effects. But the 1964 album is a classic album that paved the way for the 1979 album and the avalanche of Halloween sound effect albums/cassettes/CDs that have been released over the last several decades. In my opinion, this 1964 album is better than a lot of the sound effect albums that have come out in the decades since. If you want a classic recording, get this one.

However, I recommend the 1979 version if you want to elevate the scare level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spooky Sounds from a classic "haunting" album! October 30, 2013
Format:Vinyl
This spooky album was first released by Disney in 1964. I remember listening to it when I was a kid back in the late 1960's and early 1970's. It had some genuine scary sounds that did great in a haunted house. I forget all the tracks on the record but I do remember the "creaking and moaning of doors", "UFO Invasion", "Chinese Water Torture", "Screams and shreaks" and I know there were alot more scary sounds! This album may not be as "sophisticated" by today's spooky sounds, but believe me it was scary! Hopefully one day it will be re-released on CD or digital. Until then though, this is another great childhood memory produced by Disney! Highly Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stands Test of Time September 19, 2012
By Todd7
Format:Vinyl
Four stars for this Halloween classic. A classic that's just four stars? Yes, because I'm not a big fan of narration when it comes to something like a Halloween album. The narrator's voice is surprisingly haunting, but distracting nonetheless. Fortunately, only half of the album has narration. I found it somewhat interesting that Disney could use things that the average person thinks aren't scary and deliver the scare element, such as the wooden bridge. That one gets me every time. I love that part of the album. I will also acknowledge that this album actually triggers my imagination quite well. For more realistic sound effects and a scarier listening experience, I highly recommend the superior 1979 release that was panned by critics. This 1964 release is geared toward kids for the most part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still my favorite December 2, 2010
Format:Vinyl
Still gives me chills. The second one released in 1979 is also great. If you want scary screams, cool windstorm, crazy laughter, this is the CD for you. Still my all time favorite. I own a Haunted Attraction in Baltimore, MD. I love the new stuff too but sometimes you don't want music in your haunt. [...]

This is the best Halloween album ever. I grew up hearing it every year and then my brother took it.
