The Munsters "The Munsters" (Decca DL 4588, 1964)

The Newest Teen-Age Singing Group! Yeah! That's right!

In honor of Mr. Al Lewis, here's an LP cash-in attempt that uses the Munsters name on a collection of teen beat/ pop music from 1964. While that could be a recipe for total crap, there are actually some okay instros here, and a few vocal numbers that almost even make it into creepsville. Sure there's no involvement from anyone on the show (in contrast to the cast album "At Home With The Munsters", shared files of which I think can still be easily found), but dammit the man needed to be paid SOME sort of tribute, right? I sincerely hope this fits the bill.

By the way, "netiquette" compels me to make note of the fact that this is the first thing I've posted that hasn't been a rip of my own (the transfer is from a much cleaner copy of the LP than mine so I went with it). Kindly do try to understand, and I promise to make mention of such things should they arise again.

Very cool; glad to hear it.

And hey; I've read & enjoyed your blog many time. You're the guy I'm jealous of for scoring the Moon Monster! Lucky bastard. Man do I honestly envy that find.

Yes, Thanks for sharing this! Just a couple weeks ago it got bid out of my price range on ebay.

You've shared a lot of stuff that will come in handy when I assemble the annual Halloween mixes.

I'll admit that I've only scratched the surface of my Halloween stuff, but hopefully I'll able to mix in enough other oddball junk to keep it interesting to folks who don't have the same pathetic damage as me.

Thanks for making all of these great albums available! I look forward to some of the stuff on your incredible Halloween list. What ever happened to Tiki Tim, anyway? He just up and disappeared!

Hi,

Is there any way you can re-upload this LP?

I downloaded it last October and burnt it to CD-R and somehow misplaced it. I came back to search for it again only to find the file has been deleted.

It'd be really great if you could put this one back up again - I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks!

I am surprised to see this on-line. I am the lead singer on this album along with my friends Bill Wild and Jim Infield.
