018Various The Ultimate 50’s and 60’s Rockin’ Horror Disc CD-018

Released: Out Of Print

After the release of ‘The Ultimate 50’s Rockin’ Sci-Fi Disc’ , The Viper Label now takes a look into another 1950’s fascination of the unknown, that of the Horror genre. This album once again tells the story of a more innocent and naive time, a time of stability after the dark years of World War Two. People could now enjoy themselves again and let their imaginations run riot with past times such as comics, drive in movies and TV shows ‘The Munsters’ and ‘The Adams Family’. All these factors influenced musicians.Most of these songs are completely unknown by unknowns. This is the first time that these unique recordings have been put together in a collection and in that respect, this is an important cultural record of a time long since gone but the songs should be loved and remembered- Forever.
