I originally discovered this album several years ago while working on the children's radio program I used to dj and produce. I really enjoyed listening to the music, but had to leave the cds behind when I left the show after moving out of the city. Now that I currently am back on the air with an internet radio show, I've been looking around for some good quality Halloween music to play on my new show. There really isn't much out there. A lot of the Halloween cds you buy are compliations of songs rearranged by different artists or studio groups. That's not the case with HALLOWEEN HITS. There are only 10 songs on the album, but they are all sung by the original artists. Some of them are Halloween favorites, such as "Monster Mash" and "Ghostbusters" while others are related to frightening/scary/monster themes and shows, such as the "Addam's Family Theme" and "The Twilight Zone Theme". It would be nice if this cd had a few more tunes on it, but for less than $10, it's basically a bargain. A good cd to play at Halloween.
