Title: The Graveyard Theme/Marble Orchard
Format: 7"
Label: Lysergic Sound Distributors
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"The first ever reissue of the legendary Graveyard Five single: The Graveyard Theme b/w The Marble Orchard (Stanco SR-102), one of the true “holy grails” of garage rock. This is truly one of the rarest 45s in the world, with only  a handful of original copies known to exist; no surprise then that they sell for more than $4,500! The Graveyard Theme, an exercise in fuzz guitar excess, was apparently inspired by a Ouija board session. The B side is the fuzz soaked reverb-laden monster, The Marble Orchard, which tells the true tale of the creepy, wet October night the band spent in the cemetery; they were convinced they saw something move from behind a tombstone and then heard “a wolfpack howl”. If the circumstances and subject matter of these songs isnt creepy enough, the recording studio where these songs were recorded was supposedly haunted by a spectre that provided guest background vocals in the form of a growling noise thats clearly audible near the end of The Marble Orchard. •A true masterpiece of 60s U.S. garage rock finally re-issued after more than 45 years." - Stanco.
