Alfred Hitchcock Presents Ghost Stories For Young People

Johnny Takes A Dare
Alfred Hitchcock Presents
Ghost Stories For Young People
Tales Of Spooks, Hobgoblins And Spirits Hauntingly Introduced By The Master Of The Unexpected
Narrator: John Allen
Golden Records LP 89

From Billboard - October 27, 1962: The Master of chills make his first appearance on a record designed for small fry, and those whose parents give them a listen will have plenty of chills. Hitchcock himself does his usual rambling kind of chatter between the stories, which are ably narrated by John Allen. Excellent orchestral accompaniment contributes to the weird and eerie mood. Sample titles include "The Haunted And The Haunters," "The Open Window" and "Johnny Takes A Dare." Good material, well told, but not commended for just before bedtime.
