Ghostly Sounds (Gershon Kingsley & Peter Waldron) "Ghostly Sounds" (Peter Pan, 8125, 1975)
An all-time fave of many 1970's kids, this has gotten some extra attention in recent years now that folks have figured out that the Moogtastic Mr. Gershon Kingsley ("Popcorn", "The In Sound From Way Out", etc) was involved. It's justified though, and Side One will probably give you more than ample reason to be interested; Peter Waldron's simple but evocative narration conjures up a spooky Halloween vibe and the (largely non-library) sound effects merge perfectly with the electronic underscore. I know that the "Goblin Dance" section in particular both enthralled and creeped me out when I was little and even today if it went on for 20 solid minutes I doubt I'd grow bored. Side Two's single story ("The Ghosts from Outer Space") might seem a tad goofy to anyone past childhood, but even if you can't get into the plot the curious use of human voices for most of the sound effects (to simulate working, a guy actually says "work") nicely expose the avant garde influences that were at play on a lot of children's records in the late '60's & early '70's.
Note: This rip is different from the one I circulated last October, and is from a previously unplayed copy of the LP.
