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. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

Christopher Lee Reads Edgar Allan Poe - Tales of Mystery and Horror

The Lovecraft and Poe audio books that I posted earlier this month were well received, so I thought I would follow them up with this little gem. There isn't much information floating around about this release, yet I was able to discover that it was originally released in 1985 by the DH Audio label, which specializes in audio book releases. It was only released on cassette, and still has yet to see a CD release.

Once again, Christopher Lee does an outstanding job of bringing Poe's stories to life. If you enjoyed his rendition of "The Black Cat" from the Fireside Tales album I posted earlier this week, then you will love this. His version of The Raven is superior to every other version that I've managed to hear so far. Here's hoping that someone will eventually release a "Christopher Lee Reads Lovecraft" album eventually.

Track List:
1. Hop Frog
2. The Raven
3. The Masque of the Red Death
4. The Tell Tale heart
5. The Rue Morgue - Pt. 1
6. The Rue Morgue - Pt. 2

Sorry about contacting you here. I would like you to add my blog to your other site please. It features VT and NH bands with some others thrown in that I think some of the younger kids around here should check out. it's only been a couple weeks so there is not much structure as far as when I post the local bands,I figure that will come eventually. It can be found here...

1985, eh? I thought I'd seen this advertised for sale in the early to mid 1970s on vinyl LP.
