From Rankin/Bass, the creators of TV's holiday classic "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" comes the original motion picture soundtrack to Mad Monster Party, the beloved 1967 stop-motion monster rally that inspired director Tim Burton to create his Nightmare Before Christmas.

Experience the complete orchestral score by composer Maury Laws, released for the first time in over thirty years, plus original songs with lyrics by Jules Bass featuring the vocal talents of Boris Karloff, Phyllis Diller, Ethel Ennis and Gale Garnett.

This deluxe package includes an exhaustive 16-page booklet detailing the making of the film by noted Rankin/Bass historian Rick Goldschmidt and includes dozens of never-before-published photographs and concept drawings by celebrated Mad magazine alumnus Jack Davis and Don Duga.

Although the end credits to Mad Monster Party advertise a soundtrack on RCA Victor, that recording never materialized. This CD is the first release of the soundtrack ever - it's the coolest party of the year and you're all invited!

The Mad Monster Party CD is the inaugural release of Taylor White's Percepto Records label, in association with Retrograde Records and Film Score Monthly magazine.
