Phish's concept concert based on Disney's "Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House"

For Halloween, rock group Phish traditionally creates a 'musical costume' by covering a classic album from music history. This year, the band created a new set of music based around the 1964 Disneyland album Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House. Interesting set of music with a cool stage design, the band uses the original narration and inspiration for the songs."

It makes for quite a concept album, to rival Kilroy Was Here and 2112.
