Comment:

I'm sure a few of these artists would object to any association with goth culture, but boy, listening to this mix certainly creates a mood to rival any Cure album.

I had a lot of fun putting this together and researching it. The Jason Crest track in particular is a real find.

Very outside-the-box, this one! And very cool, as well. I particularly love the tracks from the Doors, Arthur Brown, Iggy and Floyd. I'd wager that more than a few of these tracks can be found in the record collections of many goth band members! :-)
