info wydawcy:

Just in time for Halloween, Fingertips offer up yet another forgotten masterpiece with a scary 30 track collection that brings together the complete classic vinyl rarity 'Poe For Moderns' by Buddy Morrow and his Orchestra, along with the best of the late '50s and early '60s music inspired by the burgeoning horror movie genre.

Buddy Morrow And His Orchestra took the opportunity to roll out a whole album's worth of haunted melodies using the stories of Edgar Allan Poe as their inspiration under the suitably beat title 'Poe For Moderns', in which they also tried to appeal to the beat generation as well as horror fans.

'Poe for Moderns' mixes spoken word and spooky jazz fronted by a cooler-than-thou beatnik-styled English lecturer intoning the tales alongside creeped out harmonies from The Skip-Jacks.

Alongside this horror genre classic are 18 classic exploitation 45s mainly culled from the classic horror year of 1958 when The Blob and I Married A Monster From Outer Space were staples at the drive-in.

With classic performances by TV horror show hosts John Zacherle and Bob McFadden, tales of purple people eaters from both Joe South and the legendary Bo Diddley and a good smattering of Frankenstein and Dracula novelty hits, it's wall-to-wall gore with a fine sense of humour.

The collection is an eerie kaleidoscope of doo wop eirdness, rollicking rockabilly with much maniacal laughter, plus oddball visions from the likes of Nervous Norvous and downright strange stories from a host of vintage crooners.

Remastered from the original sound sources, the packaging includes copious sleevenotes by MOJO magazine's Dave Henderson.
