Description by

Imagine ladybugs, butterflies or honeybees and Halloween doesn't exactly come to mind. But have you ever looked at a praying mantis in close-up? At the latest then you will learn to be creeped out. Such images were used as models for classic horror movies, oversized insects and spiders became song themes, the fear of spiders, one of the primeval fears of mankind, comes to life here. This handpicked compilation presents a wide spectrum of genres of past times, classics, but also many rarities. About a third of the recordings are pure instrumentals, incl. - as a special highlight - an early recording by Curtis Knight & The Squires, whose lead guitarist was a young Jimi Hendrix! Guitar virtuoso Buddy Merrill opens the CD album, and from jazzman Lionel Hampton with his Orch. comes the oldest instrumental recording (1937). Extremely annoying flies are sung about by Hank Williams and Chubby Checker, with Martin Denny's Tsetse Fly it turns exotic. The classic and cult film 'Tarantula' has also left its 'footprint' in the music world and is represented here by no less than four performers.
