Spooky Records: Zacherle

For the Halloween season, we have some fun vinyl in the shop! We love that we have Zacherle's Monster Gallery!

Zacherle: Zacherle's Monster Gallery (Limited Green & Orange "Pumpkin" Vinyl Edition) LP
Through out the ‘50s and ‘60s, John Zacherle Was the “Cool Ghoul” of East Coast Television, Presenting Late-Night Horror Movies to Delighted Teenagers in New York and Philadelphia
Zacherle parlayed his TV success in to a recording, acting, and radio career. His rarest and most sought-after album Is 1963’s "Zacherle’s Monster Gallery", which sells for up to $150 online --If You Can Find it! Released on Elektra’s budget imprint Crestview, the LP Was a Copy of the 1960 release "Spook Along with Zacherley", except that it featured cover art by Legendary Mad Magazine Artist Jack Davis !!!!
Limited to 1000 Copies 
Released in Time for Halloween Almost Exactly a Year After Zacherle’s Death 
A Timely Tribute to Two Unconventional Funny Men (Davis Died in 2016 as Well) 
Fittingly enough, The Cool Ghoul himself, John Zacherle, passed away right around Halloween in 2016, and now we here at Real Gone Music are celebrating his one-year “deathday” by releasing his incredibly rare album Zacherle’s Monster Gallery, originally issued on the budget Elektra imprint Crestview, on green & orange “pumpkin” vinyl limited to 1000 copies! This record was originally released 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 release a twin tribute to two guys who brought a big smile to millions of kids, especially those on the East Coast that used to see Zach present all those cheesy horror movies on TV. R.I.P., Zach and Jack!
