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’ (JASCD 943), 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.

And diverse, unlikely names like Harry Belafonte, Al Casey, Claudine Clark, Buster Doss, Kay Martin and Mack Allen Smith.
