The Ultimate Rockin` Halloween Party - American Horror Songs, 1930s-1950s

These Viper compilations are always good value, and arriving just before the season of the witch is upon us,

the timing is most fortuitous for this spooky trawl through Americana, incorporating horror-themed rock & roll,

rhythm & blues, jazz and doo-wop, predominantly culled from the 1950s. Bo Diddley, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and

The Big Bopper are among the artists lined up here, tapping into the American post-war appetite for drive-in fodder

with impressive efforts like Leroy Bowman & The Arrows’ ‘Graveyard’ (just the sort of thing you could imagine The

Horrors covering) and direct B-movie plunderers such as The Five Blobs’ novelty instrumental ‘The Blob’ and Sheb

Wooley’s ‘The Purple People Eater’. The compilation closes on a particularly old entry — The Five Jones Boys’ 1937

recording ‘Mr Ghost Goes To Town’, an eccentric blues number that’s perhaps more of the era and temperament

you’d encounter on Mississippi compilations. Excellent stuff.
