Make horrid scars and gashes.


Frankie Stein And His Ghouls (Complete LP Discography)

Here's the complete run of albums by Frankie Stein and His Ghouls, a fictional studio creation designed to profit off the "Monster Kid" generation of the early 1960's. The Frankie Stein formula was as simple as it was brilliant; cool low budget horror cover art, creepy sounding song names with a suggested dance listing after the title ("Hully Gully, Frug"), and spooky sound effects laid on top of the actual music (which was a potpourri of twist & beat numbers that sometimes had frightful compositional overtones & sometimes didn't). Just fucking perfect.

Ripped from the cleanest LP copies I could find, I highly recommend the whole set. Ideal for dance parties!

Thanks for putting these up!

Tiki Tim had put them up around halloween, just before he shut down his blog. But, for some reason, not all of the files were included when I opened the zips.

Now I have the complete albums.

Bent T: Heh, actually I gave Tiki Tim access to my rips last October & he used one or two at the time (I spread a number of my rips around last fall, so I'll probably be posting some semi-familiar albums now & then). Glad you got all the files this time!

Dave: for the WAKY audio you should check out this completely great site. It's where I'd grabbed em initially (I mostly just re-tagged my files so as to reflect my obsessive nature). It's a real labor of love & there's tons of cool audio on there. -- very much worth a look & I think you'll enjoy it.

Thanks a million again, Scar Stuff!

I bought copies of all the Frankie Stein stuff at another site years ago, but they suffered in spots from bad compression. I have an LP of the first one in halfway decent shape, but wanted ALL the Stein stuff-- it's GRRRRRRRRReat! (As Tony the tiger used to say.)

Some of the Frankie Stein recordings show up on other records without the ghoulish sound effects, including the Batman LP that featured "the sensational guitars of Dan and Dale". (Actually Sun Ra, of course. You can find that record at "Beware of the Blog".)

This is a GREAT site. I remember, way back in the early to mid 70s, a buddy of mine got several of these LPs as CUTOUT albums at our downtown KRESGES 5 and 10 cent store. Probably for a dollar apiece! Lucky devil! We used to sit in his basement and listen to them in the dark. Can't wait to hear them again.

Thanx for your efforts!

Hmm, try giving it another go. I just tested the zip & it was fine (and actually it's had over 500 downloads so far with no other problems that I know of).

Good luck!

I remember these records vividly. My dad was a music teacher and one of his students gave him several of these records. I was only fou/five years old at the time and they freaked me out. No matter how much the album covers scared me I still listened to them. I've searched all over for these and I just now rediscovered them.

I was given the LP of Shock, Terror, Fear as a kid and always loved it. Later I've acquired most of the others in one form or another, including the re-release of Shock, Terror, Fear on CD (now out of print again, I think). Picking up albums at thrift stores, I discovered the album "Busby Lewis' International Discotheque Orchestra" and instantly recognized several of the tunes as being the exact recordings of some of the Frankie Stein numbers but without the monster sounds (link here:

I've been curious about the musicians on these records, but unfortunately, the credits are pretty nonexistent-- and Busby Lewis' seems to have done nothing else that I can find. The sax work on these records is particularly great and distinctive. I did find one possibility-- I discovered the work of King Curtis where some of his work from the early '60s is somewhat similar, and Curtis did work as a session musician-- here's one example: though the other musicians on this recording don't quite sound the same, the sax and other Curtis recordings from the period are approximately the same style and virtuosity as the Frankie Stein recordings.

I'm thinking the Frankie Stein & Busby Lewis' records were projects where session musicians were hired for specific target markets, and someone like King Curtis (if not Curtis himself) was hired as the sax player. It's clear whoever is playing sax on the Frankie Stein albums is no slouch, and the other musicians are doing a fine job in that vintage genre. I don't know if I'll ever know for sure who they were, but in any case, the Frankie Stein recordings are great vintage rock instrumentals from the early 1960s that are worth listening to whether it's Halloween or not...
