Horror for the Holidays

Horror for the Holidays

These two classic LPs are a darkly humorous alternative to the typically sweet, sentimental recordings one usually hears at this time of the year. A MERRY MONSTER CHRISTMAS has become a perennial holiday favorite...I think some of the jokes on the album are still quite funny, in a late-night-TV-horror-movie-host sort of way. MONSTER CHRISTMAS MASH is in the same (jugular) vein. Also included in the zip file are two versions of MONSTER'S HOLIDAY, by Bobby "Boris" Pickett and Lon Chaney, Jr. Have yourselves a scary little Christmas!
