Editorial Reviews

Straight from the crypts, er, vaults of Cameo Parkway comes this fiendish find, a gruesome twosome of vintage albums from the Cool Ghoul himself, the original TV horror host, Zacherle! The first of these albums hit #44 on the charts, as it boasts Zach's Top Ten hit, "Dinner With Drac" (plus, as a bonus, its flipside, "Dinner with Drac Pt. 2"), but his sleeve notes are worth the price of admission alone and these albums come to you in original "moan-o." None other than Zach acolyte (Zacholyte?) John Sebastian chips in with new notes, too. Back in print in America!

Format: Audio CD
Born on September 26, 1918, John Zacherle, then the amiable host of Shock Theater since late4 1957 on WCAU-TV in Philadelphia, and a close friend American Bandstand's Dick Clark, recorded the smash hit Dinner With Drac Parts 1 and 2 for the Cameo-Parkway consortium of Philadelphia and, with the backing of the instrumental band The Applejacks, it rose to # 6 Billboard Pop Top 100 and # 19 R&B in March-April 1958 on Cameo 130 billed as John Zacherle"The Cool Ghoul" - a nickname hung on him by Clark. It should be noted too that Part 1 was also released on Parkway 853 at the same time but with Hurry Bury Baby as the B-side in place of Part 2 which was, in effect, a lass gory version of Part 1), and on some pressings of Cameo 130 the flip was shown alternately as Igor and The Cool Ghoul.

That, however, would be his only nationally-charting single, although to be fair he didn't cut all that many such records. Later that year he released Eighty-Two Tombstones/Lunch With Mother Goose on Cameo 139 and I Was A Teenage Caveman/Dummy Doll on Cameo 145 billed simply John Zacherle and none of the sides charted.

In 1962 Parkway released these two LPs:
"Monster Mash" (Parkway P-7018) containing: A1. Monster Mash (2:57); A2. Hurry Bury Baby (2:43); A3. Let's Twist Again (Mummy Time Is Here) (2:16); A4. I'm The Ghoul From Wolverton Mountain (2:44); A5. Gravy (With Some Cyanide) (2:05); A6. Popeye (The Gravedigger) (2:25); B1. Limb From Limbo Rock (2:22); B2. Weird Watusi (2:30); B3. Pistol Stomp (2:18); B4. Dinner With Drac (2:55); B5. The Ha-Ha-Ha
(2:33); B6. The Bat (2:27); and

"Scary Tales Featuring John Zacherley" (Parkway P-7023) containing:
A1. Scary Tales (From Mother Goose) (1:52); A2. A-Tisket, A Casket (2:21); A3. Hansel And Gretel (2:28); A4.

Horror hosts were common if you grew up in the 50's to the 80's- Sat afternoons or late night- every area of the country had them ! Zacherle was one of the well known ones- and very popular!! This compilation puts together 2 of his very out of print records onto one cd. This is old school Halloween stuff- before Freddy and Jason- where things in black and white- living in old haunted houses-created an atmoshere rather than showing bllod and guts!! Oh- to have grown up in those eras was a special and magical thing! Get this one for the fun and the memories kids!!
