Gene "Bowlegs" Miller - Frankenstein Walk


When i was about 5 or 6 i was way into horror movies and comic books. i begged my mom to buy me this plastic 6 foot glow in the dark Frankenstein from the back of a comic. I was so psyched when it finally came and immediately hung it up on the back of my bedroom door. Well later that night when it was bed time i had this 6 foot glow in the dark monster staring at me while i was trying to sleep. i ran out of the room and went and slept with mom....

Now some years later i wish i still had that stupid thing and i've tried to find one and they go for like a hundred bucks.... fuck that shit. But if someone has one for a dollar i'll buy it from you..... heh....

anyway, Happy Halloween!

First, really good single -- never heard it before.

Second: There's a book that has been highly recommended -- "Mail Order Mysteries--Real Stuff from Old Comic Book Ads" by Kirk Demarais.
I have never looked through it, but it supposedly has pages and pages arranged with the comic book ad on one side, and an actual photo of the product on the other.
It has been on my wish list for a while.
AbeBooks.com seems to have good prices on the hard cover edition.
