Album Review

by darlingkandie [discogs.com]

Although this is called "Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House", just glance at the track listing and you might notice that the only bits here that have anything to do with spooky material or the supernatural are a small collection of sound effects and one short audio sketch.

Still, this was an important record in my childhood, and I suspect the youths of many others, too. It was marketed to children and required the use of the imagination to visualize what was being portrayed through the sound effects.

Some of the effects, like the howling dogs, the wind, and the rain, have been used numerous times in different movies and cartoons. A few of them have been sampled for different electronica projects too. For example, "Theme From S'Express" uses the female narrator's voice from The Martian Monsters ("countdown is progressing"), and The Orb use the harrowing falling scream in "The Unsafe Bridge" for their track "Assassin".

Album Review

Wade Denning (who passed away near Halloween in 2007) was a big-band composer and arranger in the 40's and 50's. For 20 years, he was an arranger for "Ted Mack's Family Hour" - during that time, he also composed over 550 advertising jingles. In the 60's and 70's, he composed music for children with Kay Lande (including a terrific Halloween album). One such recording is this compilation of some classic and some original scary short stories.

We've got some of the usual suspects ... The Headless Horseman (I remember being pretty scared of this version when I was a kid), The Tell-Tale Heart (which suffers a bit by being shortened ... reducing the "slowly-building tension" that Poe was so good at), and The Railroad Signal Man by Dickens. There are also some Wade Denning originals ... the Ghost Ship in particular isn't bad. Composer and folk-story-teller Oscar Brand contributed the script for two tracks.

On the tracks where the narrator is telling a story, the sound effects are a nice addition and are suitably spooky. On a couple of tracks, it isn't so much "story telling" as it is "first person" horror which, to me, isn't as effective. Still, this fits in nicely with the Troll Records ghost story albums from the 70's ... not a 100% classic, but certainly worth a few listens.

The artwork on the back cover is terrific, too.

Album Review

Rob Theakston [allmusic.com]

By the time Eddie Murphy's Comedian was released, he was already on top of the comedy world, as well as one of Hollywood and television's most important stars. He was already known for taking standup comedy and pushing it to the limit, but on Comedian he takes it one step further and in the process influenced an entire generation of aspiring young comedians to develop standup in a similar fashion. None of the topics Murphy covers here are necessarily groundbreaking, but the manner in which he sets up and executes joke after joke is almost like a machine gun: while one joke has unfolded and the audience is recovering, he's firing off the next round with excellent timing and accuracy. Comedian is a classic and one not easily bested in the comedy album world.
