Spooky Music For Spooky Occasions - Columbia Playtime Records 412 1950
3 minutes of spookiness off of one of the older Halloween records I have. The Columbia Playtime series of 78s date back to the 1920's; here's some info from an article on Kiddie Records putting them in context: Little Tots' was joined by the Playtime label in the summer of 1924. Playtime discs originally carried ornate, multicolored labels and at 15¢ were obviously meant to compete with Cameo-Kid. [snip] Playtime would prove to be the longest-lived of any 78-rpm children's brand. The Columbia Broadcasting System inherited the label in 1938, with its acquisition of ARC, and continued to produce Playtime 78-rpms into the late 1950s. Columbia's Playtime, a long running series of 6" and 7" records (originally 70 titles, then reissued in a series of 113 titles) began in the late 1930's and continued up to 1954". That all having been said, I now present you with two tracks of simple organ for all your spooky occasion needs.
