V.A. - THE ULTIMATE 50's AND 60's ROCKIN' HORROR DISC (2003)


SHIT. YOU SHOULD BE SCARED
ARTIST`````````````VARIOUS
ALBUM`````````````ROCKIN' HORROR DISC

GENRE`````````````EARLY ROCK n' ROLL
YEAR```````````````2003


MY VIEW:
This is definetly not the "Ultimate" compilation on this subject but it still carries a lot of fun, romance and most importantly - underground sounds from forgotten artists of that age. Werevolves, zombies, vampires and all sorts of dangerous places and situations are here to scare and entertain your bored ass.

MY VIEW:
Is Ultimate 50's and 60's Rockin' Horror Disc really the ultimate '50s and '60s rockin' horror disc? No, considering it's missing well-known classics of the genre, like Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash," Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell on You," and Jumpin' Gene Simmons' "Haunted House." But for a compilation of obscure mid-'50s-to-mid-'60s songs that mixed rock & roll with horror novelty lyrics and sounds, it does a pretty good job. And these 20 items are indeed obscure -- LaVern Baker (with "Voodoo Voodoo") is the only famous artist, though avid rock & roll fans will recognize a few of the others, like Bunker Hill and Kip Tyler. As tunes go, they're usually nothing to shout about, often confining themselves to stock basic early rock & roll progressions and arrangements, though sometimes with the ominous minor-key patterns common to monster-movie soundtracks.

Most of the time, though, it's rather wholesomely giddy romps through the lands of monsters, cemeteries, and ghosts, about as scary as a Halloween costume, but about as fun to put on.

Thank you for posting this now out of print music!
I was desperate for the disk - an addition to my first volume: ULTIMATE 50's SCI-FI DISC, and didn't realize it's going for a crazy price on Amazon nowdays.

Thank you again for having such an eclectic taste in music!
3 Cheers for Bleeding Panda!!!
