2 stars This is a strange little novelty record. The music is actually not bad: it's basically folky psychedelic rock similar to Jefferson Airplane. The songs feature campy lyrics about Satanism, witchcraft, and the occult; I happen to enjoy music with that sort of aesthetic, and i find the far-out, over-the-top-evil lyrics quite enjoyable, amusing, and entertaining (in a Hammer Horror sort of way).

Jinx Dawson has a really good voice but she over-pronounces words like Eartha Kit and uses a super-exaggerated vibrato which can get annoying fast. The songs are theatrical but simple folk and blues based acid rock.

This is far from essential material for Prog fans, or anyone else for that matter... but I like it's quirky atmosphere and, as i said, some of the music is pretty good (especially the songs 'Black Sabbath', 'White Witch of Rose Hall' and 'Portrait') but it's mostly forgettable... and the 'Satanic Mass' track is just about the biggest waste of tape i've ever heard. I would only recommend this to 60's-and-70's B-Horror movie fanatics looking for a musical equivalent... and maybe Jefferson Airplane fans.
