Midnight VanBuren's Strange Vinyl “The Original Music From ABC-TV's Dark Shadows”
Nostalgic memory has a way of transforming the mediocre into the remarkable. Dark Shadows was a Gothic-melodrama soap opera that, despite the low budget and slow plot pacing, had a lot to offer in way of mood. This album features Robert Cobert’s music over which Jonathan Frid (as the vampire Barnabas) and Davis Selby (as the werewolf Quentin) recite free-form spoken-word poetry. The music itself ranges from a brooding electro-classical to 60’s surf-rock, making for a somewhat uneven, but still fun, listen.
Fun Facts: —To celebrate Dark Shadows’ 50th anniversary, this album was repressed in purple for a 2016 Record Store Day limited edition. —"Dark Shadows” is a top ten all-time best selling television soundtrack, hitting 18 on the pop charts in 1969. —Barnabas was only only slated to appear for a few episodes, but was well received by the fans. Producers kept him on for the rest of the series. —The five episode a week workload was so frantic, most of the show was shot in one take. Final production included bad shots, flubbed lines, visible equipment and studio workers, malfunctioning props, and failing sets. —One of the sets was razed after a studio executive did a walk through and saw it in a cobwebbed disarray. It had to be quickly rebuilt so filming could continue.
From the archives: a #DarkShadows Choose-Your-Own Adventure. One of these days I’m going to load up on energy drinks and write one of these in a single sitting. We call that the The Marilyn Ross Method.
I would giggle my head off watching this as a little girl. Bugs and the Vampire.
And as strange as it seems, I grew up as a little girl watching Dark Shadows and I loved it. I just loved it. I always think of vampires as my protectors. I know a lot of people think of them as something bad and evil and there are so many books and films that I cannot watch because it freaks me out. But in my little happy imagination growing up. It was always the vampire that felt most like a guardian angel for me.

The best beauty contest EVER... aka a 1970 promotional event for the release of « The House of Dark Shadows », a movie based on the eponymous tv show. The final winner was Christine Domaniecki, crowned here by the actor playing Barnabas on the show. The original winner was a quite colorful character: Sacheen Littlefeather was from California and in 1973 she replaced Marlon Brando at the Oscars. The actor sent the Indian beauty to pick his award in protest for the treatment of American Indians. And yes, I spent more than half an hour reading about that fascinating story on internet... the beauty of the web... #vampires#missamericanvampire#1970#gothgirl#darkshadows#fangs#christinedomaniecki#blackisthenewblack#legend#sacheenlittlefeather
