Witchcraft and Magic [Capitol Records, 1969]
SWBB-342 Stereo - Two Record Set
Written and Directed by Terry
d' Oberoff. Producer: Roger Karshner. Electronic score by Douglas
The secrets of witchcraft and magic revealed by Vincent
Price, distinguished actor and demonologist. A Note from producer
Roger Karshner: “In this album we have attempted to bring to the
listener the essential elements of Witchcraft and Magic,
authentically and dramatically. Terry d'Oberoff's script is
historically sound and is beautifully written, with satanic,
dramatic brilliance. Mr. Price's interpretation is indeed masterful.
His voice surrounds you, lifts your mind and transport it across the
landscape of Hell.” Quite easily the best of Vincent Price's many
recordings. Here Price’s superb dramatic reading is beautifully
enhanced by an inventive use of stereo, along with echo and sound
effects that most of Price’s other recordings lack. There is also a
very subtle music score and atmospheric readings from three
un-credited actresses, who play the witches from Shakespeare's
