...Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of pow'rful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."
The three witches in Shakespeare's Macbeth knew very well the recipe for a good scare. But if you're fresh out of Eye of Newt, and prefer your pooch's tongue remain in its mouth, where it belongs, Professor Morte's Silver Scream Spookshow's your best bet for fun that won't cost you an arm and a leg...or any other appendages or organs!
I blogged about this album last year, when I first became aware of it. But it bears repeating: Your Halloween collection ain't complete without Professor Morte's Silver Scream Spookshow Presents Building the Perfect Monster. This is a fun, fun, fun collection, reminiscent of the Halloween classic, The Mad Monster Party, with such likable tunes as "Bigfoot Mama," "Little Cousin Creepy," "The Mummy's Rag," and "Lon Chaney." Trust me: if you're throwing a Halloween party, or simply want some mood music for the kiddies who come Trick-or-Treating at your door, Building the Perfect Monster is the perfect CD for you!
And just so's you know: Professor Morte's Silver Scream Spookshow is apparently going to be performing at the World Horror Convention in May of 2015! Go here, for details.
That's it, for now.
Keep looking over your shoulder, though.
Halloween is coming.
And you never know what's coming with it.
