• Bear Family's nightmarish contribution to the Halloween season and other dark nights of horror!
• 'The Shadow Knows', a 'horror film in sound' that freezes the blood in your veins!
• The title song is performed by two artists: The legendary Link Wray and the great Coasters!
• 34 nostalgic horror songs and rarities from 1934 - 1982.
• A unique compilation that relies on real scary effects and does not repeat the Purple People Eater or the Monster Mash!
• Included are Screamin' Lord Sutch with his classic Murder In The Graveyard and the rare Kay-Starr version of the Bing Crosby classic The Headless Horseman.
• Britain's Tommy Bruce with a soulful horror version of Speedy Gonzales as Monster Gonzales as well as the legendary Gene Cardos Orchestra, who shocked the world with Zombie in 1934!
• Extremely rare recordings like Dead by The Poets, a short-lived doo-wop group from Los Angeles, or The Swanks with their brute instrumental Ghost Train can be heard here.
• 'Horror Of Dracula'! Rare radio film trailers of the 50's like Ed Wood’s 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' complete the picture!
• A compilation that did not yet exist in this form and that will take your breath away!
Halloween - from Ireland via the USA back to the European continent, the originally probably Celtic customs gained the status of a cult celebration before All Saints' Day. Halloween is celebrated every year on the night of October 31st to November 1st. At the same time it is a young epitome of pure horror and spookiness.
But Bear Family's 'Season Compilation' is not limited to the theme for one night, Halloween. We have the ubiquitous horror, the fear of terror, the born-again, the zombies and the ghosts that are in our heads and the phantoms from the horror stories and movies.
Dive into the realm of darkness and unexpected horrors with 'The Shadow Knows'! 'The Shadow Knows' delivers the perfect audio soundtrack not only for Halloween. Whenever you want to be closer to your demons, insert this CD into your player.
We wish you a scary and entertaining time.
