Featured Music By Mannheim Steamroller

Although best known for his Christmas, Chip Davis drives his Mannheim Steamroller over to the beloved holiday known as Halloween, which also happens to be the album's title. On this supernatural-themed outing, Davis brings his trademark synthesized orchestra bombast to compositions such as "Hall of the Mountain King," "The Flying Dutchman," "Night On Bald Mountain," and "The Sorcerer's Apprentice".

Perhaps the most successful tune, however, is the opening track, "Toccata In de Mole", which calls mad scientists and dark castles to mind. Throughout the album, Davis seems to be having a good time, and this consistently shows through, making it the musical equivalent of a fun Halloween night spent trick or treating. It's sure to be a great enhancement to any costume party as well!
