DEAN GITTER - GHOST BALLADS 1959

I was talking to my good friend Stoney about stuff like this just the other day, so now I'm posting a little of it. This is kind of folksy, but the subject matter really makes this essential. Gitter's voice is good for this type thing and he really pulls out some classic material here. Lots of great public domain folk tracks full creepy little tales. When I first heard this I was really happy because I had heard the song "Skin and Bones" before, not this version but the version that is sung by the old lady in the woods in the 1975 movie "Lemora: A child's tale of the supernatural", a movie that I am a little obsessed with at this point. That version was beyond creepy, so when I heard this I was totally psyched. This one just got a little press in the latest issue of Rue Morgue magazine (which I love), so if any of you read that I'm sure you'll want to get this. There are several other great Halloween records mentioned so I think its a must read situation regardless. They even mention the old Scar Stuff blog, very cool. Also this has a killer Charles Addams cover, you cant beat that...Enjoy!
