Swamp Legend

Four Coachmen Swamp Legend 45 (Stellar, 1962)

Here is a nice piece of kitsch and as close as you are gonna get to a Halloween song this year. "Swamp Legend" isn't a rare record - you can pick it up for $5 pretty easy. But it as been forgotten. Too bad, it has a good talk over, some nice group vocals, and great ethereal background vocals. Don't know anything about the Four Coachmen and right now I've got too many things going to do some deep research on this one.

I remember this song. It received some airplay on WKDA in Nashville, and I also heard it in southern California. It had some interesting haunting-type "swamp sounds" backing the vocals.
