elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time.

Christopher Lee - Fireside Tales

Christopher Lee is best known for his portrayal of Dracula in numerous Hammer Horror films, and more recently as the villian Saruman in Lord of the Rings. Fireside Tales was originally broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on December 30th, 2004. It features Lee reading five classic tales of horror from the late 19th/early 20th century. Lee does a great job bringing these stories to life, and his voice is perfect for the role. Hopefully one day he'll get around to doing a Lovecraft story or two.

Track List:
1. The Black Cat (1843 - by Edgar Allen Poe)
2. The Man of Science (1892 - by Jerome K. Jerome)
3. John Charrington's Wedding (1893 - by Edith Nesbit)
4. The Man & the Snake (1891 - by Ambrose Bierce)
5. The Monkey's Paw (1902 - by W.W. Jacobs)

Thank you for these tales from the greatest master of the genre [and I'm not forgetting his great friends Vincent Price and Peter Cushing]

Heh. I was always a fan of "Monkey's Paw." Kind of strange hearing it coming from Saruman and Count Dooku
