Today in Halloween: ‘Chilling, Thrilling Sounds …’

If you grew up in the 1960s, the Disney record “Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House” was the soundtrack to every Halloween party ever.

Released in 1964 on the Disneyland label, the vinyl LP featured a mix of spooky sounds and narration, but the Disney sound effects – whistling wind, driving rain, ghostly moans and horrible screams, not to mention creaking doors – was perfect for mood-setting background “music” for Halloween parties.

Bits and pieces of the album are all over the Internet. Here’s a taste.

Happy Halloween party!
