The album reached number 8 in the UK Albums Chart, and following its US and Canadian release in May 1970 by Warner Bros.

Speaking of spending on a holiday, did you know:

Breaking down Halloween spending, 43.6 percent of people said they plan to dress up.
Those folks will spend $2.6 billion on costumes, almost equally split between those for adults and those for children. Halloween revelers will spend $330 million on costumes for their pets.

Then there’s the candy. The tab on trick-or-treat confections will run more than $2 billion. Halloween greeting cards will cost an additional $360 million.

Finally, Americans will fork over almost $2 billion on decorations, including skeletons, spider webs, inflatable Frankenstein monsters, and various other ghoulish yard and interior paraphernalia.

In fact, spending on Halloween decorations ranks second only to spending on Christmas decorations, a fact not lost on merchants who devote entire sections of their stores to the holiday.
