From the Other Side: The Finest Moments of King Diamond & Mercyful Fate - Part 1 of 7
Metal Blade released a great remastered edition of The Spider's Lullabye, prepared at the hands of none other than Andy La Rocque (who also helmed remasters of The Graveyard, Voodoo and House of God). All were worth repurchase for me but it was The Spider's Lullabye that benefited most from this treatment, adding a richness and depth previously absent on what was, by comparison, a pretty flat, sterile CD. The series was supposed to be followed by a career retrospective DVD which, as far as I can tell, has not yet surfaced.
Up next: In the Shadows
