Release Date: 04/05/11

2 CDs of death songs through the ages with a deluxe package, liner notes, featuring Leadbelly, Gene Vincent and more.

One of pop's hardiest forms, the death disc is arguably the most comic too. It also remains one of the topics that has lasted the test of time and even today loss of a loved one remains a subject still popular amongst songwriters of a certain sway. What is sure is that songs related to death maintain an enormous cult-appeal amongst collectors. This superb two CD collection brings together 52 of the finest songs from this strange genre, dating back as far as 1912 and as recent as 1960 - this was the golden age of the death disc. With artists as diverse as Leadbelly, Marty Robbins, Alfred Hitchcock and Gene Vincent on tracks with names as gruesome as The Tragedy Of School Bus 27, Grandpa's Grave and The Water Was Red. Completed in deluxe packaging with 16 page booklet, slipcase and extensive liner notes by the author of 'Death Discs: Account of Fatality in the Popular Song', this compilation, remarkably, is the first ever collection of 'Death Discs' to emerge.
