The Munsters: The Munsters - Inspired By The T.V. Characters 'The Munsters' (LP, Colored Vinyl))
(Real Gone Music) 12 tracks, colored vinyl (orange with black splashes)
Did you know that Herman, Grandpa, Lily, Marilyn and Eddie Munster also performed as a rock'n'roll band? Although they were proclaimed as "The Newest Teen-Age Singing Group" in the subtitle of the album, they didn't know it, but that didn't stop the label bosses at Decca Records from cashing in on the new CBS TV show! Veteran producers Joe Hooven and Hal Winn had the common sense to hire the Wrecking Crew (especially Glen Campbell and Leon Russell) to play this surf-swept set of songs and brought The Go-Go's (no, not these Go-Go's, they were just out of diapers (it was a male trio that cut an LP for RCA in 1964, the same year this record came out) to sing the lyrics to pearls like "You Created a Monster" and "Make It Go Away".
The whole thing is a hoot, and a highly collectable hoot on that 'original copies of this album command 'monstrous' hums! Aaron Kannowski has remastered our re-release, and we have pressed a limited edition in pumpkin orange with black splashes on vinyl. Get ready for the Munster Creep this Halloween and beyond!
