Record Review – John Zacherele

Monster Mash/Scary Tales
It's been reissued just in time for Halloween. Everyone knows 'Monster Mash'. It still remains thee Halloween record and kitsch novelty doesn't come thicker than this. Philadelphian rep actor John Zacherele cashed in on the craze for the mid-60s TV screenings of the classic ’30s and ’40s Universal horror flicks, intoning delightfully macabre verses in mock Boris Karloff accent over Cameo Parkway's house band. A one trick pony, but a majestic one.

Host a frat party tonight and make this the soundtrack to your ghoultivities.
