• Various Artists - Monsters, Vampires, Voodoos & Spooks - 33 Slabs of Undead Rock ‘N’ Roll

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 & 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 fun, 33-track celebration of such recordings, ranging from the downright 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-ever success, Bobby (Boris) Pickett & The Crypt Kickers' perennial 'Monster Mash'.

Plus 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 and unlikely names as Screamin' Jay Hawkins, LaVern Baker, Bo Diddley, The Big Bopper, The Hollywood Flames, Bert Convy, Johnny Fuller, Bob McFadden & Dor, Screaming Lord Sutch, etc.

Many of the rarer sides featured herein are unavailable elsewhere on CD.
