Sounds To Make You Shiver - Soma Records

I confess, I am guilty of a mild deception. On Monday, October 19th, 2009 I posted the cover for the late 60s Soma label version of the most familiar to the most people(with the probable exception of Chilling, Thrilling Sounds Of The-)haunted house record, Sounds To Make You Shiver. However, the sound share I shared was actually the 70s Pickwick re-issue. I just pasted the cover I liked best(both came from the webnet)at the top of the post, never dreaming there could also be a sonic difference between the two releases. Well, though slight, there is. On Side One, at least. Since I acquired this earlier version of STMYS early in the year, I now know this. All images are my own...this time. Have Fun spotting the differences!
For Obsessive Monsters Only!...

You should check out the band Monster A Go-Go they used that sample on their song Terror in the Haunted House. That was in the late 90's but a new version is up here...

That band sounds VERY retro i think you'll dig it.

You don't have to publish this post, I just didn't know your email to write you privately.

I just acquired the lightning cover version of Sounds To Make You Shiver today, completing my STMYS album collection and I would really love to get a copy of your Soma recording, especially if you have a lossless version.

I have been collecting Halloween audio since 1973 and have one of the largest Halloween collections on the planet and would be happy to reciprocate, if I possibly have something you have been searching for, Unfortunately, I have no way to digitally transfer vinyl, but I have a lot of cassettes, tons of CDs and billions of digital files!!

You can peruse my website at to check out the collection, though it is not as up-to-date as I'd like it to be.

Check out the Archive pages and Album Covers page.

You can contact me at stevoinyrstereo (at) aol (dot) com

Thank you very much!

Best, Stevo
