Panic: The Son of Shock



This odd record from 1959 was a sequel to the album "Shock". I don't have that one, but I was going to find somebody that did and link to it here. Unfortunately the couple of places that showed having it are no longer available. If anybody has a working link for it, please let me know and I'll add that link here.

**UPDATE! You can download "Shock" at misterlesterkeen's blog. Right here to be exact. Thanks, misterlesterkeen!**

Anyway, this album from the Creed Taylor Orchestra features strange instrumental bits (some with a little talking as well) of some unusual and scary situations. The back cover has a story for each song, so I've included a copy of the back cover above (as well as on the uploaded zip file) to give you a bit of an idea on what's going on here. I apologize that the back cover didn't really print well here. If you click on the picture it gets bigger, and (with Firefox at least) a magnifying glass comes up that blows it up even bigger. I really don't know what else to tell you here, other than to download it and enjoy, remembering that the name of this blog is "Way Out Stuff" and I think this fits the bill!

Here's the track list:
  1. You're Driving Me Crazy
  2. The Prison Break
  3. The Operation
  4. Wreck of Old '97
  5. Out of This World
  6. Lion Act
  7. Heartaches
  8. Rain
  9. Alpine Honeymoon
  10. A Shot in the Dark
  11. The Fastest Gun
  12. No Smoking

Hey, as it turns out, I have the other two albums in the set: "Shock Music in Hi-Fi", and "Nightmare". I'll be more than happy to post them if you can fix the Panic Son of Shock file on Badongo. It's corrupt, I've dl'd it twice, and still get the "unrecoverable zip file read error" message. Help!!!

Hi monsterwax!

I fixed the link. I had had some power problems and thought both of yesterday's files had uploaded properly, but it turns out they didn't. They're both good now.

Do you have the other two albums on a blog? If so, I'll be happy to point everybody to it. Otherwise, let me know if you want me to share them here.

Thanks!

I didn't see monsterwax's comment before, but I posted Shock on my blog (misterlesterkeen.blogspot.com).

Tony said...

Thanks, misterlesterkeen! I updated the entry to link to your blog. And monsterwax, if you still want to make "Nightmare" available to complete the set, that would be swell!

Thanks for the quick fix, dude. I don't have my own blog, just happy to help out. If 192kbps sounds good to you, just show me how and where to upload. As it turns out, Panic was the only one of the three that I didn't have. Thanks! By the way, thanks for all the other really cool oddities you've posted in the past. Way Out Junk ROCKS!!!

Tony,

Got to thinking after I posted that last. How hard could it be for me to just save you the wait and upload "Nightmare!!" myself? I used Badongo, and it was really quite easy. Thanks again, and enjoy everybody! Happy Halloween,

I already had a "Shock" zip in my files. I'm wondering if it's the same. Not even sure where I got it from. The first Shock zip I have has 30 tracks repeated twice for some reason. Wonder if they're the same. As of yet I haven't downloaded misterlesterkeen's zip to chekc the two against each other. Thanks for these LPs.

Well. The two are not exactly the same. I guess the first Shock zip has some added tracks. The first 12 are identical, but then it has 18 more after that. Hmm.

Well, I just ripped the Shock album yesterday, but it's from a CD I picked up (when CDs of that sort of thing were popping up on dubious labels a few years back). It's also got "The Best Of Panic" and "Nightmare" on it, but since Tony only mentioned Shock, I just pulled those tracks. The CD has 30 tracks (12 from Shock, 6 from Panic, 12 from Nightmare). It was on "Fear Records."

Gah! I'm sorry Tony -- I just saw this now after posting my own rips of the same albums. Ah well, everyone will have PLENTY of chances to grab these now I guess, huh? Looks like I need to search around more before I post!

Uh, my "Panic" came from a mono copy -- maybe THAT'S different at least? Heh.
