The Best of Edgar Wallace: Original Music from the German Cult Thrillers by Peter Thomas and Martin Bottcher RARE Vinyl Edition

This is pressing number 827 of 999 limited edition units.

Listen to the most roaring and groovy themes from the big screen series based on the novels by Edgar Wallace. For the first time the highlights and main themes of the soundtracks which became characteristic for the German crime movies have been compiled on one disc.

The tracks recorded between 1961 and 1971 reach from the manic jazzcapades of Peter Thomas, sometimes accompanied by shouting and shooting, to the more harmonic orchestral suites of Martin Böttcher. 25 out of the 28 works on this disc have been penned by these two grand masters of German film music.

A best of album in the truest sense of the word.

“Hallo, hier spricht Edgar Wallace!”
