|Hollywood's Dracula (Album Cover)|
Review" The ultimate Bela Lugosi CD...unique, captivating, an amazing collector's find... -- Terror Journal
"...I've never heard a better mix of 19th century European classical music and contemporary Americana..." -- Film Fax magazine
"...the best-ever horror star audio tribute...combines art, music and history..." -- Monster Maker
"Swan Lake" turns up again in Greenhaw's pleasingly orchestrated version dominated by electric organ, and, lastly, as "Swan Lake Rock", the arranger's audacious and completely successful melding of the Tchaikovsky piece with the Ventures-style guitar. The cut is simultaneously rockin' and traditionally melodic. I loved it.
Greenhaw's other adaptations/arrangements of existing melodies are no less clever.
Original compositions include Greenhaw's "A Hunchback Named Ygor", a regrettably brief piece dominated by melancholy oboe; and "Child of the Night", a sincere Rhodes-Greenhaw collaboration that seizes upon Bartok, and other early 20th-century modernists, for inspiration. -- FilmFax Magazine, July 1998
