IMPRESSIONS: This one's because of Cheeks! In the 90s, this one appeared on a Halloweenie Cerpts Tape made for me by Cheeks. Several years later, I came across the actual cd. As the subtitle of the album says, these are "eerie tales based on true stories" and have more of a folklore feel instead of the fictional ghost stories found on things like the Vincent Price Caedmon albums (although they have their fair share of folklore as well). The strange thing about Tom Willett is that his voice sounds EXACTLY like Forrest J. Ackerman. Exactly exactly! As these albums go, GHOST GALLERY is an absorbing listen. Willett has a great storytelling voice and knows how to put a story across. As Willett himself explains the album: "This album should be suitable for kids over seven and dogs over one. There are stories that go well for Halloween or any night of the year. There are stories about ordinary people and presidents and Pharoahs and movie stars. What a cast!"
MY FAVOURITE TRACKS: The White House Ghost, The 3 Mummies, Ghost Cafe, How To Meet A Nice Ghost, Never Never..., Patton, Where the Ghosts Are, The Show Must Go On (or Saturday Night Dead), A Few Chillers
