Album Review
Joe Brenner
Reviewed 2003-04-29 
Pipe organ and percussion indeed, recorded in the
50s, but not the solid wall of cheesy kitsch
that you might expect.

Faves:
(1) & (6) - spooky, bombastic with lots of
percussion (like, xylophone).

(7) & (18) - slow, atmospheric

(12) oddest version of "The Stars Fell on
Alabama"

Back story: Georges Montalba was a pseudonym
of now (and then?) forgotten showbiz dude,
Bob Hunter. Anton Lavey used to claim that
it was *his* pseudonym. Liner notes include
a striking photo of Lavey with his daughter
"Zeena Schreck", now a Master of the Temple
of Set. She backs up the anti-Lavey, pro-
Hunter line.
