Ogham Waite and the Amphibian Jazz Band

I ordered this LP, CD and bonus CD Radio Theater broadcast of At the Mountains of Madness from The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society.  The packaging is terrific with a napkin, Gilman House matchbook and other extras.  I would’ve preferred 180 gram weight vinyl, but the sound is fine.

Who’s Ogham Waite?  I have no idea —but the artist sounds suspiciously like Tom Waits from his Nighthawks at the Diner period.  My favorite tracks: My Slimy Cephalopod and Somewhere Under the Ocean.  How can you go wrong with the later lyrics sung to the seminal melody from The Wizard of Oz?  This is just plain fun.
