Monsters Vampires Voodoos & Spooks CD
Monsters Vampires Voodoos and Spooks CD
The 1950s saw a huge renaissance of Horror, Monster and Vampire movies, TV shows and comics in the United States, which coincided with the arrival of Rock 'n' Roll.
This led to the appearance of a plethora of novelty discs, often on tiny, mysterious, local record labels, some of which crossed over to become major hits.
This is a 33-track celebration of such recordings, ranging from the obscure to multi-million-sellers.
Includes hits like John Zacherle's ghoulish "Dinner With Drac", Sheb Wooley's high octane Purple People Eater and the genre's biggest success, Bobby Boris Pickett & The Crypt Kickers' perennial Monster Mash.
Then there are serious collectors' items from Carl Bonafede, Kip Tyler, Jackie Morningstar, Scottie Stuart, Leroy Bowman & The Arrows, Earl Patterson with The Darts, Frank N. Stein & The Tombstones and Jimmy Dee & The Meteors.
Also features such diverse names as Screamin' Jay Hawkins, LaVern Baker, Bo Diddley, The Big Bopper, The Hollywood Flames, Bert Convy, Johnny Fuller and Screaming Lord Sutch with many of the rarer tracks unavailable elsewhere on CD.
