2008 archive release containing recordings from the late, great master of the macabre. Apart from his legendary horror movie career, Vincent Price was also an art historian and collector, gourmet cook, author and raconteur. His greatest asset throughout his career was his voice and nowhere was it put to better use than in the medium of radio. This honeyed instrument, with which he was able to portray infinite permutations of charm, terror and sinister intent was a godsend to the writers and producers of such series as Escape and Suspense who offered listeners a world of adventure, romance and, increasingly, horror, and with the ingenious use of music and sound effects, conjured up scenarios that would have proved prohibitively expensive in film or television. At the same time they were able to explore their characters' inner worlds in the same way as novels, and it was this kind of interior monologue at which Price excelled - the sound of a man grappling with his inner demons as much as the supernatural kind. El Bandone.
