Lucifer - Black Mass (1971)

How Mort Garson Inspired Nightmare City Halloween

This is the album that started it all for me!

In 1973 I worked at "Scream In The Dark", Tulsa's ultimate Halloween haunted house attraction. Every night, all night long, the most incredible music played throughout the entire house. It was a cassette tape, looping the album "Black Mass" by Lucifer (Mort Garson), an incredible electronic music tour de force. I thought it was the most incredible music I had ever heard and that's when my love of Halloween music was born.

1. Solomon's Ring
2. The Ride Of Aida (Voodoo)
3. Incubus
4. Black Mass
5. The Evil Eye
6. Exorcism
7. The Philosopher's Stone
8. Voices Of The Dead (The Medium)
9. Witch Trial
10. ESP

Composed by Mort Garson.
