Some FANTASTIC CDs of classic horror music can be purchased at
www.mmmrecordings.com.

And you can learn a lot about the composers and the history of classic monster films at the site. It's as lavish as the inserts that come with their CDs.

I don't actually own any CD's from them, but they look really cool. These tracks come from several different sources. But the album covers did come from their website.
