BORIS KARLOFF TALES OF THE FRIGHTENED VOL. 1
In observance of Halloween week here at the MYSTERIOUS MANSION, I'm gonna go off the grid a bit. Submitted for your enjoyment is the Mercury LP, BORIS KARLOFF TALES OF THE FRIGHTENED VOL 1 (Mercury, MG 20815, 1963). While not impossible, copies of this recording are a little bit on the elusive side. As a result, I've decided to go ahead and post the whole album (yes, that's what they were called back then). The stories aren't bad, and how could they be with Boris introducing and narrating them? There is a connection between this and the theme of this blog as well, as this record showed up for sale in various monster magazines at the time. I'll be posting more monster "odd"-iology for you listening pleasure in the next couple of days. Now, it's time to "dim the lights and play this record . . . if you dare!"
