The thing is this kind of music... I know the style have a name. But i don't remember it. Anyway. First time i hear the voice of Lon Chaney Jr. Good voice.

I guess you'd call this a novelty record, Deka. The first version was released in 1962 by Bobby "Boris" Pickett as a follow-up to Monster Mash. (That version is easily found on YouTube.) Lon Chaney did this remake in 1964.

Is that the only record made by Lon Chaney, Jr.? I missed it on the first go-round and have never heard another by him.

Probably, Evan.

I found this info on IMDb, but know nothing more about it:

Album: The Wolfman Speaks-Lon Chaney's Last Recordings (&) Ticklish Tales of Terror

CD: Not of This Earth-The Film Music of Ronald Stein/Varese Sarabande/ a 1992 release that includes Lon's "Spider Baby" song rehearsal & final cut from the same titled 1968 film.
