Synopsis

Amazon.com
Leave it to Rhino Records to come up with the best party music for Halloween rave-ups. In contrast to New Wave Halloween, this set of 10 tunes is aimed squarely at the family listening environment. "Monster Mash," sung by Bobby Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers, is a hoot decades after its origin. And Screamin' Jay Hawkins's "I Put a Spell on You" is aptly eerie, if not a tad funny in this setting--considering that "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" comes after and the Addams Family theme comes before. And lest you think this set of tunes is mired in the depths of Halloween tunes from generations ago, it also has "Ghostbusters"--which reeks of datedness anywhere but here. --Andrew Bartlett

CD Reviews

Alot of great trick or treat party tunes
Kim K. | Bayonne, New Jersey | 09/25/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You can't go wrong with this if you are looking for some fun music for Halloween. Whether you're planning a party or just want to listen to this while distributing candy, this is probably the best Halloween music collection around. Now if only RHINO would come out with a Part 2. Great fun here for everyone."

"this cd has the cleanest, clearest cut of jumpin" gean simmons hit, haunted house. it's unfortunate that so few people seem to remember this hit. this cd is worth it for only that song. the original Ghost Busters tune is on this cd and is also the clearest I've ever heard. this cd is one you should get !"

"This is a wonderful CD for the family. My young children love it and we spent lots of time dancing to it. We even listened to it at my child's kindergarten Halloween party. It was a big hit. Unlike many of the Halloween CDs today this one is not frightening. It is fun and upbeat. I highly recommend it."
