The Best of Edgar Wallace / music by Peter Thomas, Martin Bottcher, and Nora Orlandi
I recently signed up for a subscription to a bona fide fanzine devoted to the German Edgar Wallace films. A fanzine fer chrissakes. A PRINTED fanzine, just like in the old days, before computers, before the Internet. It seems like printed fanzines have become an endangered species, if they are not already extinct. Even Psychotronic magazine recently closed up shop (that was a real blow for me).
So, in this day and age, when someone comes along, starting a printed(!) 'zine dedicated to the German Edgar Wallace films, you bet I am gonna give my $8 (for five issues).
I just received the first 'ish and its not a bad start; looking forward to future issues. Anyway, it put me in the mood for some music from these Edgar Wallace films so I dug this disc out.
