This review is from: Dead! The Grim Reaper's Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
There's things here which really flog the idea-an instrumental for Godssakes!
And Bob Luman's hit-which is nothing to do with death discs but one of the titles he mentions IS-that's Patti Page's One of us.
So much needed to be permanently sent to the bottom of the vaults and not inflicted on collectors who never asked for it. Such as that nonsense by some person called The Fox
However Betty Barnes' Requiem----makes up for it. Its a death disc because the narrator is already dead so this is her inner self speaking like an "out of body" experience whatever and its a pretty moving narration which could bring a tear to the eye.She's in her coffin and sees her parents weeping and she admits she caused them grief in life when she lived on the wrong side of the tracks
The trouble with this collection is there's so much stuff out there in the same genre which is vastly superior eg Neil Scott's Bobby,Jim Reeves' The Blizzard and endless Johnny Cash songs
There is no need to include things which are clearly not death discs-like Jody Reynold's Endless sleep
