Christopher Lee - Dracula (1974)
For my second post on Soundtracks I've chosen this little S2S beauty. Side one is taken up with a spooky story narrated by Christopher Lee (or Count Dooku for our younger listeners) himself, while side two showcases music from the Hammer series of films.
Those of a certain age, like me, who grew up in UK in the 70s will have, no doubt, been scared to death by Hammer when they were younger - or was it just me? No, it can't have been. Who can forget those late night movies packed with vampires, werewolves and semi-naked girls?
A word of warning though...make sure the lights are on and the doors are locked when you listen to Dracula.
