Smiths Horror Bags - 'Spooky Tales' No.1 - 'The Creation' Leaflet/flyer

I spotted this on Ebay a few weeks ago, didn't have the money to bid for it though. It is nice to see though because ever since I featured no.2 of 'Spooky Tales' I've been curious to what the first one would be like. The back of this leaflet is the same as featured on the 2nd one [A Horror Bags T-shirt offer] . Now I wonder if there were a 3rd one too.

Non-Genre LP records with a genre connection

Here we have a selection of records that are non-horror themed but do have a connection with horror films because of the actors featured on them. The only one featuring a still from a horror film is the Telly Savalas LP. I will feature some more that will have a monster on the cover but don't really have nothing to do with monsters.

'Kojak' star Telly Savalas was also quite the singer releasing a number of records, this particular one features a still from 'Horror Express' (1972). His other genre film was 'Lisa and the Devil' (1973)

Former radio DJ Mike Raven turned to acting mainly because he wanted to be the next big horror star starring in such films as 'Lust for a Vampire' (1971), 'I Monster' (1971), 'Crucible of terror' (1971) and 'Disciple of death' (1972). He had quite a striking resemblance to Christopher Lee and here on this record he looks quite the part.

I am not 100% sure on this but I am pretty sure this is the lovely Valli Kemp whom starred in 'Dr.Phibes rides again' (1972) starring as Vulnavia alongside Vincent Price

Here we have the lovely Caroline Munroe on the LP 'Hot Hits 11', Caroline also featured on the cover of a French or German copy of a 'Top of the Pops' LP. Genre films starring Caroline Munroe includes 'The Abominable Dr.Phibes' (1971), 'Dracula a.d.72' (1972), 'Dr.Phibes rises again' (1972), 'Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter' (1974), 'Maniac' (1980), 'The Last horror show' (1982) etc
