It's this record, which I currently cannot actually listen to because the power cord for my record player vanished in the move but! youtube saves the day!
My mom got this record and the book that came with it at school when she was a kid. By the time I came into the world it was long gone, but she had memorized the entire thing, voices and all. She used to recite the poems and stories to me when I was little. It made an impression. I found an absolutely pristine copy of both the record and book (in the original spooky Halloween bag it came in!) on ebay a while back and could've died, but instead of dying I showed it to Mom and she bought it for me for my birthday. And with fall on the way (yes!) it seemed appropriate to share.
