"Certainly one of the strangest reissue stories you are likely to ever hear is the one of Georges Montalba. Hit Thing pulls back the pages of time 45 years to unveil the true and extraordinary stories behind the greatest Theatre Organist of mystery; The Legendary Georges Montalba! This CD contains the first two highly sought after Georges Montalba albums from 1957 and 1958 re-mastered in Hi-Fi Mono together in a deluxe Digi-Pak manufactured in Germany. Both album's original artwork were faithfully re-photographed by New York photographer Lary Lamay. A 16 page full color booklet explains the bizarre tales of how the child prodigy pianist/organist Robert Hunter got his hidden pseudonymic life entangled with the Priest of Satan himself Anton La Vey. The booklet contains numerous unpublished photos of both Hunter and La Vey and was written by Hit Thing co-founder Toby Dammit and Mr. La Vey's second daughter, Zeena La Vey (former High Priestess of The Church Of Satan). Hunter's incredible 60 year career rolls past with one of the oddest assortment of characters you can imagine including Leopold Stokowski, Carol Channing, Shirely Temple, Eleanor Roosevelt, Nelson Eddy, Judy Garland, Two Popes, George Burns, and John & Jacquelyn Kennedy to name but a few! Hit Thing conducted a dedicated seven-month worldwide search to dramatically find Robert Hunter still alive in his last month of his life. All 18 tracks from both albums are here clocking in at a hefty 71:00 disc. The sounds of Montalba will settle both you and your ears into your very own cushy velvet Theatre seat for the most elegant of evenings within your home."
