BBC Records - Mike Harding "Sound Effects Vol 13: Death And Horror" (1977), "Sound Effects Vol 21: More Death And Horror" (1978)
Spurred on by the fine folks in my comments section, I'm throwing up a pair of late '70's BBC Records releases focusing on good ol' "Death and Horror". The album jackets for both of these records made me vaguely uneasy when I was a kid; the classic British fixation on torture devices is certainly front and center and the gruesome collection of track titles ("Branding Iron On Flesh!", "Red Hot Poker Into Eye!", "Neck Twisted And Broken!") more than promised to deliver the goods (turns out though that the most grueling thing for me was breaking the albums down into separate tracks -- "Sound Effects Vol 13" has 91! That task aside, I'd like to extend a special thanks to my pal Dennis for loaning me his copy). By the way, there's a third LP in this series that I've never come across, anyone out there have it laying around?
