Synopsis

Amazon.com
The good doctor dips deep into the graveyard to dig up some unusual sounds (such as Bo Diddley's "Bo Meets the Monster" and rap pioneers Whodini's "The Haunted House of Rock") for Halloween. Never fear, though: He doesn't ignore the classics, which means you can shake your skeleton happily to Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London." --David Sprague

CD Reviews

Trick or treat?
Johnny Heering | Bethel, CT United States | 11/11/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a low budget Halloween album from Dr. Demento and Rhino Records. Since it's so short, I might as well discuss each track. "Werewolves of London" is a great song that most people are probably already familiar with. "A Nightmare on My Street" is an okay rap song featuring Will Smith vs. Freddy Krueger. "The Haunted House of Rock" is another okay rap song. Why feature two rap songs in a row? Don't ask me. "Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman" is a decent New Wave song. "Castin' My Spell" is great 1950s style rock and roll. "Halloween Spooks" is great vocal jazz. "Bo Meets the Monster" features Bo Diddley vs. the Purple People Eater. "My Son, The Vampire" is a pretty good song from an obscure movie. "Nature Trail To Hell" is an absolutely fantastic song that is done like an ad for a terrible 3-D horror movie. If you can find a cheap copy of this, it is worth picking up for your Halloween party."
Haunted Spooktacular Was always a Favorite of the fans....

"I produced The Dr. Demento Show for 9 years, and therefore know what I'm talking about when I say that the songs on this CD were ABSOLUTE NECESSITIES for any Halloween Party or other gathering of ghouls. "Nightmare on My Street" features the always-charasmatic Fresh Prince, a.k.a. Will Smith; Allen Sherman, the former associate producer of TV's "Tonight Show" contributes "My Son The Vampire"; "Weird Al," a former mailroom boy at our radio network, kicks in with his hard-rockin' "Nature Trail to Hell"; Lambert, Hendricks and Ross give a jazz vocal styling of the highest order to "Halloween Spooks," making this CD a real handful of fun...in fact, the only thing I can think to add would be "Monster Mash," by Bobby Boris Pickett, and "It's Halloween," by The Shaggs....which is why I gave it a 4-star review rather than a fiver."
Ok for kids, not for adults

"This compilation would be great for the under 12 crowd, but not for an adult party. However, "Werewolves of London" is a must for any Halloween gathering, and the Bo Diddley track is a nice little blues tune. All of the other tracks are outdated."
