Carnival of Souls (Original Score)
The brief liner notes by screenwriter John Clifford explain the genesis of this music, some of the spookiest I've ever heard, as the (sometimes-improvised) soundtrack to a quickly-made horror film. There's bits and pieces of dialogue, incidental flourishes like the orchestral "Travel Music" and the jazz-club "At The Bar" series. But it's the organ tunes, reverberating as though they were exiting the mouth of hell, that really creep me out. This is a really strange album for folks of discerning taste. Play it at your next Halloween bash and watch your guests squirm...
