The mid-'60s horror/sci-fi/fantasy soap opera Dark Shadows originally aired on weekday afternoons on ABC. The soundtrack, mainly composed by Robert Cobert, reflected the many moods in and around Collinwood. The series made sex symbols out of a vampire (Barnabas Collins, as played by Shakespearean actor Jonathan Frid) and a werewolf (David Selby as Quentin Collins, later of '80s nighttime soap Falcon Crest). The LP included a 11" x 12" pullout poster of the two. One song, "Shadows of the Night" (aka "Quentin's Theme"), was a 1969 Top 20 pop hit cover for co-writer Charles Randolph Grean as Charles Randolph Grean Sounde. The show was way ahead of its time with its mix of gothic, horror, and fantasy; a formula which proved successful for '90s NBC soaps Days of Our Lives and Passions. As the 21st century began, Dark Shadows was airing on the Sci Fi cable channel. Originally issued as a Phillips LP, it went to number 18 on the pop charts in 1969. ~ Ed Hogan
