As I sit here on a Monday night, my office windows open to let in the cool Fall breeze, sipping a pumpkin spice coffee as I nurse myself back from a cold... I'm listening to some perfect music for the season - a song made famous by THE MISFITS. Now, I'm not listening to the original version, but to a lullaby version of one of their most lyrically-inappropriate songs for this site: "Last Caress." Like many of my generation, the song first hit my ears via the 1987 METALLICA cover on THE $5.98 E.P.: GARAGE DAYS RE-REVISITED. Now, you can introduce the early music of Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only to the youngest member of your family, with LULLABY VERSIONS OF THE MISFITS, the latest collection from the Roma Music Group and their TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR collection. Set for release on October 1 (perfect for Halloween), the set just went live on iTunes for Pre-Orders, with "Last Caress" as an instant download. Check out a preview below...
