More Info

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 hits. The “companion” to an earlier Jasmine compilation, “Monsters, Vampires, Voodoos & Spooks” (JASCD943), this is another fun-packed, 31-track celebration of such recordings, ranging from the downright obscure to minor chart items.

Includes “usual suspects” like Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Bobby “Boris” Pickett & The Crypt-Kickers, John Zacherle, Nervous Norvus and Bob McFadden & Dor. Plus serious collectors’ items from Tarantula Ghoul & Her Gravediggers, Tony & The Monstrosities, Morgus & The Ghouls, The Kact-Ties, Big Bee Kornegay, The Jay-Hawks and Little Caesar & The Ark Angels. Alongside diverse, unlikely names like Harry Belafonte, Al Casey, Claudine Clark, Buster Doss, Kay Martin and Mack Allen Smith.
