Extra notes on cover, middle (gatefold sleeve) and any inserts

Hello listeners,
I believe you enyoyed my previous little excusion Death and horror (REC 269) and therefore I have had my arms twisted to do another. This recording is a little different, as many of the individual sounds have been put together to form little montages.
If you're using this recording for Amateur Dramatic purposes, copy these sounds you need onto tape and edit them as you intend to use them. On the other hand, you may have brought this just for the pleasure of listening to it - if so, try using stereo headphones to avoid upsetting those with less resilient stomachs.
My thanks to Peter Harwood, Paul Hawdon and Anne Hunt who made and recorded all the delights in this gory offering.
Happy horrors,

Most of my sound effects realisation has been with cartoons and animated films on BBC Television - Vision On and Take Hart for example - so when Mike Harding asked me to assist him in the making of this record, I jumped at the challenge of making surrealistic noises without the aid of pictures.
We started with a list of possible sounds and soon found that they combined into classic "horror" scenarios - vampires - Sweeney Todd - The iron mask.
Recorded at the Paris Studio's West End over two Saturday's (less traffic noise!) on a Neve; 24 channel; four group stereo mixer, we used all manner of equipment from a bath of papier-mache for the bog sequence (and by the second Saturday it smelt like one too) to a pound of potatoes for eye grouping and multi puncturing of flesh. Possibly the simpliest track to make was the sewer - a BBC teapot dripping water into a bowl, with the rats being yours truly drumming on an acoustic tabletop with his fingers while crushing cornflakes for the gnawing of bones - mustn't give all the secrets away - or I'll do myself out of a job. Both Mike Harding and I hope you listen to this disc in the same spirit in which it was made ... sheer insanity.
Yours horrifically
