Bobby "Boris" Pickett And The Crypt-Kickers The Original Monster Mash on Colored LP
Bobby "Boris" Pickett And The Crypt-Kickers' Original Monster Mash LP was recorded and released in late 1962 to capitalize on the success of Pickett's Boris Karloff impersonating novelty single and Halloween favorite "Monster Mash" and B-side "Monster Mash Party." Continuing with its soundtrack reissue campaign, UMe will be reissuing this cult 15-track classic on colored vinyl for the first time!
"The problem was, as soon as "Monster Mash" hit Number 1, London Records wanted an album. John Zacherle and Cameo Parkway beat us to the punch with their Monster Mash album. We worked intensively to come up with an album in two or three days. It was a real struggle. We had the two singles to base the album on. We brought our album out two or three weeks after Zacherle's, and entitled it, The Original Monster Mash. Even though we had been beaten to the punch, our Monster Mash album got into the Top 100. Eventually, it did better than the Cameo Parkway Zacherle release." - Bobby "Boris" Pickett
