Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Fittingly enough, The Cool Ghoul himself, John Zacherle, passed away right around Halloween in 2016, and now Real Gone Music is celebrating his one-year "deathday" by releasing his incredibly rare album Zacherle's Monster Gallery on colored vinyl! This record was originally released on the budget Elektra imprint Crestview in 1963, and was actually a copy of the 1960 Elektra album Spook Along with Zacherley, except for one very important detail: the cover art to the Crestview release was inked by legendary Mad Magazine artist Jack Davis, who actually passed away last year as well. Which probably explains why original copies of this record are selling for about $150 if you can find them. So consider this reissue a twin tribute to two cats who brought a big smile to millions of kids faces, especially those on the East Coast that used to see Zach present all those cheesy horror movies on TV.
