Count Lorry & The Biters - Frankenstein Stomp



You don't have to be a monster, but it certainly helps!

How about a soul full Frankenstein stomp???

Some nice female backing vocals offset by some Frankensten growls and an Igor type vocals, if you want to call thhem that....

Morgus and the 3 Ghouls - Morgus the Magnificent




This is suppossedly Dr John under the name "Morgus and the 3 Ghouls" making reference to Morgus' show? True?

Morgus the Magnificent, aka Momus Alexander Morgus, is a fictional character on television shows that originated in the New Orleans, Louisiana television market. From the late 1950s into the 1980s Morgus was a "horror host" of late-night science fiction and horror movies. Morgus is a quintessential mad scientist created and portrayed by New Orleans actor Sid Noel. Assisted by executioner styled sidekick Chopsley, his well-intentioned experiments served as book-end pieces to the films, and typically go awry at the last minute.

Morgus first appeared on late night television on January 3, 1959, in the House of Shock, hosting the science fiction and horror movies in between experiments.

Gene Moss - Ghoul Days



This here is a rare 45 cut from one of the more famous "monster" records called Dracula's greatest Hits. Gene Moss was doing his best Dracula impersonation on the album that came with monster trading cards....

I'll leave the rest of the story to the pros......

Gene Moss - Ghoul Days

Jimmy Cross - I Want My Baby Back



If the Teenage Death Song wasn't dead itself by 1965 — and it wasn't — it certainly wasn't because Jimmy Cross didn't do his darnedest to put the last few nails in its coffin, so to speak. A preposterously funny sendup of the genre in general and of "Leader of the Pack" and "Last Kiss" in particular, Cross' one chart record, written by Perry Botkin, Jr. and Gil Garfield, is impossible to describe without giving away the joke, but I assure you, he does get his baby back, one way or another. Putting a B-side on this would have been overkill, so flipping this disc will turn up something called "Play the Other Side", which is actually the instrumental track, sans vocals and sound effects — a cue to deejays worthy of Phil "Tedesco and Pitman" Spector himself. Cross went from here to something called "The Ballad of James Bong", a tall tale about pop stars based on...well, yeah, you got it.

Monotones - Legend Of Sleepy Hollow




Only 2 days left...

Check my Mix i did with The Red Boy for more Monotones!

The Monotones were a six-member African American "doo wop" vocal group in the 1950s. They are considered a "one-hit wonder," as their only hit song was "(Who Wrote) The Book of Love", which peaked at #5 on the Billboard Top 100 in 1958.

I'll take the legend of sleepy hollow over the book of love any day...

The Monotones formed in 1955 when the seven original singers — all residents of the Baxter Terrace housing project in Newark, New Jersey — began performing covers of popular songs. The members of the Monotones were :

lead singer Charles Patrick (born September 11, 1938)
first tenor Warren Davis (b. March 1, 1939)
second tenor George Malone (January 5, 1940 - October 5, 2007)
bass singer John Smith (b. May 13, 1938)
second bass singer John Ryanes (November 16, 1940 - May 30, 1972)
his brother, baritone Warren Ryanes (December 14, 1937 - June 16, 1982)

Hollywood Flames - Frankenstein's Den




Only a few more days left...

I hope a few of you enjoyed the red boy devils monster music mash up? er, anyway...

Today we have The Hollywood Flames, who were an American R&B vocal group in the 1950s, best known for their 1957 hit, "Buzz Buzz Buzz", but by 1958 when when this cut was recorded "monster" music was all the rage and these cats were up to the task here with a really rockin' "monster" tune. And is it just me or does the cat up front in the promo pic actually look like a black frankenstein...??? Maybe i had one too many beers tonight....?

Lin(da) Ware liked this one so much she put hher name on it 2x's....

And if yer cravin' some more monster juice head over to The Ghost Town for some more Halloween goodies, I can't guarantee you won't get some poison in yer candy...

Red-Devil Halloween Spooktacular!



As I stated yesterday the Red Boy and I got together for some ghoulish fun and put some of our all time fave Halloween 45’s to the needle and put together a nice little 2 part mix in preparation of the final stages of Halloween!

So please dear fiends, dig in to the 1st part of what the red boy and i are calling the Red-Devil Halloween Spooktacular!

And don’t forget to head over to Blues for the Redboy for the 2nd part! (linky at bottom of post)

and now, on with the show!


Bob & Jerry – Ghost Satellite

DevilDick: Odd one here. Don’t know much about old Bob-& Jerry here except that this is supposedly one of Lux & Ivy’s (Uh, The Cramps…) faves and that Bob is Bob Summers on the gee-tar and Jerry is Jerry Le Fors:

And that these two wrote songs for Patsy Cline! I guess trying to catch fire with the “space” and “monster” themes of the 50’s they coupled the 2 together for this creepy instro. And upon further review I see this weird little instrumental is from 1958. It’s made the cut on various comps and I also see that The Hound has a liking for this tune. Good enough for me!


The Jayhawks - The Creature

RedBoy: Y'all remember 'Stranded in the Jungle' right? Well the 'Cadets' cribbed their hit version from these so-called So-cal 'Hawks' (the Gadabouts also released a version on Mercury). Tryin' to follow the 'Flash' formula on their new imprint 'Aladdin', the 'Hawk's' penned the enclosed 57'novelty romp, this time leavin' the jungle behind for a cemetery. I've always loved this tune. Perhaps it is upon hearing the phrase "Creature from the Black Lagoon" sung during a choral interlude, either that, or the fact the somebody 'wanders into the wrong record', a device the band would attempt again in their later incarnation the Vibrations!



The Zanies – Do You Dig Me Mr. Pigmy

DevilDick: I wanna see BLOOD!!!








Kip Tyler & the Flips - She's My Witch

RedBoy: Holy shit! This record is amazing! Definitely one of my top five faves, this record sounds like the audio equivalent of two people bangin'. Most people know ole' Flip from 'Jungle Hop, released on the Challenge label in 1958. And while 'Hop' is a stone-cold-killer - no doubt - 'Witch' is the jewel in Kip's Royal-Crown-Crown. Featuring sax-blaster Jim Horn (*wink*), on loan from Duane Eddy's Rebels, 'Witch' grinds it's way into the hips of history like no other song can.

Editor's Note: Peep out the Flips equally awesome, uh...flip here.


The Crewnecks – Rockin’ Zombie

DevilDick: Straight outta Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania we have The Crewnecks w/ a classic Halloween cut -Rockin’ Zombie. Unlike the creepy overtones of the mummy’s bracelet or mad witch this here cut is a fun rocker that will get all the Zombie’s shaking!!!

It took the devil a while to finally unearth an original 45, but I did, and here it is for you now!


The Three-D's - Graveyard Cha Cha

RedBoy: Can't say much about this cha cha chiller besides the fact that it is hardly 'Square' despite what the label might suggest. Cut in either 56' or 57', these D's also recorded several sides for Brunswick, Paris & Pilgrim before passing into that most frightening dimension of all - obscurity.





Lee Ross – The Mummy’s Bracelet

DevilDick: One time member of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, (is that true?) Lee Ross gives a spine chilling tale! If ever you needed a deterrent from going to a museum and steeling a bracelet off the arm of a mummy then this song is for you! When I put this song on one of my Halloween mixes last year for my kids, my little man who was 6 at the time told me “that song is too creepy Dad! Did the mummy kill the person?” yep son, the mummy killed the person, let this be a lesson, DO NOT STEAL FROM THE DEAD!!!!

Editor's note: Both me and me and DevilDick steal from the dead every day and I ain't never "turned to stone"...ok, maybe just that one time.

Devil Dick: 'Tis true but i hate to see what awaits in the next world in retribution of "stealin' from the dead"...

The Castle Kings - You Can Get Him Frankenstein



You better call Transylvania 999!!!

“You Can Get Him Frankenstein”, co-written by Phil Spector and Ahmet Ertegun, just one more of the many GREAT rock and roll records inspired by the golden age of horror movies.

The Castle Kings themselves were a vocal group who cut two singles for Atlantic records before promptly disappearing into obscurity.

Anyone know who these guys were???

Also, stay tuned for a spacial joint mix that The Devil's Music put together with Deacon Brimstone over at Blues For The Red Boy where we drank red wine and beer, watched gay Halloween specials from the 70's and put together some GREAT Halloween cuts for you just in time for your Halloween parties!

The Johnson Brothers - Casting My Spell - Zombie Lou




Time is running out for Halloween goodness, the leaves are changing and the weather is starting to get colder each morning here on the East Coast and less than a week away for all hollows eve so today you get 2 Halloween goodies froom the Johnson Brothers.

The Brothers Johnson are Alvin and Edward Johnson and these cuts were recorded after their brief recording career as The Souvenirs.

This 45 is from 1959 and rumored to have Eddie Cochran playing guitar on Zombie Lou???

Even though i believe Casting My Spell was written by the Johnson Bros I first heard this song done by The Johnny Otis Show & while his a great version on its own I think this version is better....

Don Hinson and The Rigamorticians- Monster Jerk - Riboflavin Flavored Non-carbanated Polyunsaturated Blood





Here is one time Vegas radio deejay Don Hinson's "Monster Dance Party" picture sleeve 45. Produced by Gary Paxton (Monster Mash) it's probably best remembered these for "Riboflavin Flavored, Non Carbonated, Poly-Unsaturated Blood" which was covered by goth punkers 45 Grave in 1980.

In 1980, 45 Grave recorded their first song, "Riboflavin Flavored, Non-Carbonated, Poly-Unsaturated Blood", included on the LAFMS (Los Angeles Free Music Society) art rock compilation album, "Darker Skratcher". Don Hinson at the time was a popular radio personality in Las Vegas, Nevada (and later for 20 years in Los Angeles, California). Mr. Hinson recorded the song in the wake of Bobby "Boris" Pickett's 1962 novelty song hit "Monster Mash" hoping to emulate the latter song's success and have an international hit record. Both "Monster Mash" and the Don Hinson original recording of "Riboflavin Flavored, Non-Carbonated, Poly-Unsaturated Blood" were produced by noted novelty song record producer Gary S. Paxton of Skip & Flip.

Moontrekkers - Night Of The Vampire



Here is one of my all time fave instrumental cuts, Halloween related or otherwise.

This songs is just plain great, the guitar and organ interplay is just plain wicked and creepy, the reverb overload just adds to the tension. the screams and backward tape masking add an additional creep factor and the overall groove and beat kind of sounds like floorboards creaking... I would imagine the Moontrekkers are English as I've never seen an non British pressing of this 45. This is a Joe Meek production of Telstar fame, who it is told had an obsession with the occult. Other than that i don't know much about the moontrekkers. anyone have any additional info? Was Joe meek a member of the band? Looks like they cut more singles which i certainly have to track down. Apparently this cut was also banned in the UK at the time of its release, who knew the Brits could be so creepy in a Halloween sort of way.

Sam The Sham - Haunted House



Before the Pharaoh's here is Sam The Sham's very 1st single.

Best known for their 1965 smash "Wooly Bully," which helped introduce Tex-Mex rhythms to mainstream rock & roll, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs were formed in Dallas by lead singer Domingo Samudio, who took the name Sam the Sham from a joke about his inability as a vocalist. The Pharaohs consisted of guitarist Ray Stinnet, bassist David Martin, saxophonist Butch Gibson, and drummer Jerry Patterson. Before hitting it big with "Wooly Bully," a song about Samudio's cat, the band recorded the independent single "Haunted House," which helped them get a deal with MGM. Following "Wooly Bully," the group recorded a series of largely novelty singles, but only "Li'l Red Riding Hood" approached the success of its predecessor. Frustrated at being perceived as a talentless novelty act, Samudio broke up the Pharaohs in 1967 and recorded as the Sam the Sham Revue, and adopted the name Sam Domingo in 1970. His lone solo LP, Sam, Hard and Heavy, featured slide guitarist Duane Allman, but failed to establish him as a major talent. Samudio contributed two songs to the 1982 film The Border and later moved to Memphis and became a street preacher. "Wooly Bully," of course, remains a bar band staple. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide

Frankie Stein & His Ghouls - Weerdo The Wolf


The Frankie Stein and the Ghouls records are legendary among Halloween geeks but here's a 45 you don't see all that often... This was released with a picture sleeve back in the day but mine in missing.... :(

"Frankie N. Stein 1st used that pseudonym on the rarest of monster/comedy records- MONSTER RALLY (Starring Hans Conreid & Alice Pearce.) Conreid was best known to TV fans as "Uncle Tanoose" on the old Danny Thomas show: Alice as the Nosey neighbor in the "BEWITCHED" TV series.

But who was Frankie Stein???

The flip to this 45 GOON RIVER was written by Joe Thomas, and WEERDO THE WOLF is credited to Dewey Bergman. So who really was Frankie Stein...???

A most insane record collector dream....

So i really believe that my record collecting may have reached new heights of insanity last night when i had this dream about records:

I'm sitting on my porch when i see a bright light in the sky that comes crashing to earth in the woods near the house. I go to investigate and see a flying saucer crashed into the ground with it's side busted open, there are a few dead aliens still strapped in their seats and all of their cargo is strewn all over the ground. As i stand there in shock and amazement looking over what i can barely comprehend what do i see? Boxes of 45's! So what do i do? Grab them! And what are they? Martian 45's from fucking Mars!!! Crazy strange looking writing on them that I can't understand or read so I take them out to "The Spot" to show everybody. So I run into DJ Pres and tell him my story but he has a look on his face like "C'mon man" but i show him the stash and he busts out his portable and we both hear for the first time real live fucking MARTIAN MUSIC!!!! It was insane sounding and we are both freaking out saying can you believe this shit! One of a kind martian 45's here on earth!

Haha! No shit! People start gathering around listening for themselves and next thing you know EVERYONE is just bugging out! Egg beard is trying to get close, Jimmy the pusher is trying to push his way in, Stinkie is crying in the corner saying shit like "why couldn't I find this stuff" the old man is there with a look of disbelief, Jack the ripper, Robert, the hippie, and everyone else is all around and no one can believe what is going on and then my dream just ends.....

I think i need help....

my take on tonights debate



here's where my vote goes...

Hutch Davie - Gwendolyn and the Werewolf


Halloween anyone???

Here is Hutch Davie and his Honky Tonkers on Atco from 1958 doing a really moving piano & sax rocker full of maniacal laughter & screams!

Here's the skinny on Mr. Davie:

Working with producer Bob Crewe, Hutch Davie provided the arrangements for such best-selling rock singles as Santo and Johnny's "Sleepwalk", in 1957, and the Angels' "My Boyfriend's Back" in 1962. A top-notch producer, Davie oversaw recordings by Shirley Ellis, Patty Duke, Leslie Gore, Ellie Greenwich and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Davie was nominated for a Grammy award for his arranging of the Bob Crewe Generation's 1967 album, Music To Watch Girls By.

A skilled pianist, Davie was co-writer and played piano on Jim Scott's novelty hit, "Green Door", in 1956. He recorded interpretations of jazz standards, including "Woodchopper's Ball", "Sweet Georgia Brown" and "Glow Worm", with his band, the Honky Tonkers, and an album, Piano Memories featuring his solo playing.

Davie's most enduring work came as a songwriter and arranger. He served a stint as staff songwriter for Trinity Music, in New York's Brill Building and wrote for the Canadian-American, Congress and Caprice labels.

The Upperclassmen - Cha Cha With The Zombies - Freedom 117


You're all invited to party, come along now...

I can't believe that it is almost a year already since i spun this on my radio show last Halloween.

This one here is a family fave, when my kiddies were very little we would turn the light off in the house, crank up this little diddy and Cha Cha with the Zombies around the living room...

Man, time is really flying...

Around this time last year i also got an anonymous comment from the brother of one of the upperclassmen asking where he could find a copy. i replied and never heard back from him so if your still out there brother, here ya go...

Johnny Thunder - Horror Show



Ok folks more Halloween tunes: here is the "American" version of Horrow Show....

Wonder what the "Non-American" version sounded like?

Not to be mistaken for Dead Punk Rock Icon and all around New York Doll Junkie Guitar God Johnny Thunders with an "S".

But Still I'm not even sure if this is "THAT" Johnny Thunder below because it doesn't state that he cut sides for Epic but keeping in the Halloween spirit here is "A" Johnny Thunder doing another kooky spooky "Horror" 45 side.

In 1963, Johnny Thunder, born Gil Hamilton, scored the only hit of his career. "Loop de Loop" was essentially a nursery rhyme set to music. The public loved it, and it assailed to the lofty perch of number four on the pop charts. Only "Hey Paula" at number one, "Walk Right In," and Bobby Vee's "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" at number three, prevented it from being the top record during the week of February 9, 1963.

Born August 15, 1941, in Leesburg, FL, Johnny Thunder started singing in church, high school, and on street corners. Nothing was happening in Florida in the late '50s, so Thunder moved to New York City under the advice of a friend who worked as the road manager for the Drifters. Thunder even sung with the famous Atlantic Record group for a few months prior to Ben E. King leaving to go solo. After the stint, he started recording under his birth name for Capitol and Fury Records, but had no success. To keep the rent paid and food in his belly, he made his self useful as a studio background vocalist working with then-unknowns Dionne Warwick, Luther Vandross, Cissy Houston, and others. Thunder's high mellow resonant tenor always lifted him above the others. One of his Capitol releases was "Tell Him," the same song which became a hit for the Exciters months after his version had died. (The Exciters' members included the boisterous voice of Brenda Reid, who's the mother of Antonio "L.A." Reid, who became a songwriting and record producing force with Babyface in the '80s and '90s.)

Producer/songwriter Teddy Vann came up with "Loop de Loop," a song that Thunder thought was a joke. Vann even suggested the name change from Gil Hamilton to Johnny Thunder. None of his following releases came close to equaling the success of "Loop": "The Rosey Dance" failed to enter the Top 100, stopping at number 122; Bert Bern's "Everybody Do the Sloopy" did much better, but its showing at number 67 was still unimpressive. Like most singers, Thunder didn't like the stuff he recorded, but did it hoping lightening would strike twice. He continued recording throughout the '60s, waxing sides for Calla, Vee Jay, and United Artists Records; the Vee Jay 45 dropped under his birth name. In the '70s, he recorded sides for Arista, but again, no hits. He recorded one album, Loop de Loop, on Diamond.

The Tomko's - The Spook



Here is a record i posted back in April but seeing how we are in the beggining stages of the Halloween month i thought this deserved a re-post!

I don't know much about "The Tomko's" but i do know this is a pretty wild and "spooky" 45. Screams, howls, cries, wind & wailing and screeching sax and some insane laughter make this a real nutty "Halloween" type rocker!

So strap yourself in for a wild fun-house ride!!!

Enjoy!

The old link above was made private by divshare.... maybe somebody complained?

I hope not. I have been getting a lot of complaints of late and i want people to know that in no way shape or form am i making $$$ from this or trying to steal away anything from the artist or disrespect anyone. Contrarily i am trying to turn people on to great lost songs and artists that people might not have even heard of if they didn't hear them here....

Here is a new link that i will keep up until i am told otherwise....

45 Sessions, Laying Low & Thanks

The devil has been layin' low over here at in the bloggie world. See, i took the last 3 days off from work for My b-day and i've been trying to enjoy myself and trying to stay away from idiot boxes (computer - TV)and now i have a wedding to attend out out of town today so my comp access has been and will be limited but let me steal a few second here this LATE Sat. mourn and get a few words in... 1st thanks to all the kind folks that called or send me b-day wishes, friends & family alike. i love you all. I've really had a great Birthday and I've done TONS of record digging while on this little b-day celebration vacation. the JJB and i have been all over NJ & PA and dig up some nice scores, of all varieties, which i'd like to post up at some point but not today. We also spent a lot of our time eating out and doing a bit of social drinking, as well as long walks on the boardwalk... 2nd, thanks to DJ prestige over at Flea Market Funk for asking me to DJ at last nights 45 sessions. i was planning on attending but DJ Pres didn't ask me till the last minuet to DJ so i figured i'd change it up and did an all old school hip hop & rap set spun EXCLUSIVELY on 45. It was a GREAT night at the Asbury Lanes last night with all the DJ's spinning great stuff but Pres took the cake with his ROCK mix set and right into the funky stuff. Killer. and although he didn't spin it is always a pleasure to catch up w/ dJ Jack The Ripper. We talked punk rock all night! Mutha Records anyone??? The 45 Killer spun some insane African Funk, Larry Grogan always kills it and it was cool to see he finally got that Eddie Holland 45! M-fasis and DJ prime Cuts were all on point and even in the crowd was a bit thin it really was a great night. No fans were injured.
Here is what i spun:

Chase - Open Up Wide - Epic
Kurtis Blow - The Breaks - Mercury
Rob Base & D.J. E-Z Rock - It Takes Two - Profile
J.J. Fad - Supersonic - Ruthless
Beastie Boys - Paul Revere - Def Jam
Rub DMC - Mary Mary - Profile
Ice-T - Colors - Warner Brothers
L.L. Cool j - Going Back to Cali - Def Jam
Biz Markie - Just a Friend - Cold Chillin'
Salt-N-Pepper - Push It - Next Plateau
Newcleus - Jam on It - Sunnyview
Luke featuring 2 Live Crew - Banned in the U.S.A. - Luke Records

Dig it!?!?

Anywho, i hope to be back soon and start getting into the October swing of things with some Spooky and Kooky Halloween oriented 45 cuts!!! as well as a spooktacular collaboration w/ the red boy coming soon as well!!!

Cheers!

The Monkees - Words




I'm sending this one out to my man DK and he knows why...

No need to go into any great detail about the Monkees is there?

bet none of you all thought for a second the devil could back something like this huh...???

Goof or not, they had some cool tunes & ANY band that takes out The Hendrix Experience on tour with them as an opener to 12 year little girls MUST have been on some good drugs as they obviously didn't think that one out...

Anyway, this a great Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart penned cut!

Enjoy!
