Assuming that the mere prospect of so many novelty tunes isn't enough to make your blood run cold, the disc is a primer in niche anthologies and reissues, assembling a staggering number of rare and little-known tracks that fit seamlessly within the disc's narrow conceptual scope -- who knew so many records of the late '50s paid tribute to scary monsters and super-creeps?

Recommended for kids of all ages.
