'Freddy's Greatest Hits' Is Getting A Vinyl Re-Release


Get ready to "Do The Freddy!"

The 1987 album, "Freddy’s Greatest Hits", is getting a much appreciated [and affordable] vinyl re-release thanks to Mondo and Strange Disc. This is a nine-track novelty album put out by RIC Records and features the fictional band, The Elm Street Group. The album includes a mix of covers and original songs such as “Do the Freddy.”

"Freddy's Greatest Hits" goes on sale at noon CST this Wednesday, November 22. Pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. Limited to 400 copies, the re-release will be priced at $25, with orders expected to ship January 2018.

Press Release:

“This record contains nine tracks, a mix of covers (from the likes of Wilson Pickett, The Everly Brothers, Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs) and original songs and instrumentals. The album is everything you expect it to be: screaming ’80s drum machines and distortion filled electric guitars being drowned out by synthesizers. Over the top of these songs is Robert Englund doing the voice (and manic laugh) of Freddy Krueger. The actual music-making was done by the Elm Street Group, who were much respected studio musicians working for RIC records. Featuring artists like Kevin Kelly and Alan Brewer who both contributed to Rick Wakeman’s soundtrack for THE BURNING.”
