It's a howl: NYC artist compiles album of screams

Send a link to a friend

[August 18, 2009]  NEW YORK (AP) -- This new album is a scream -- and more.

"Favorite Recorded Scream" is a compilation of 74 brief howls, whoops, cries and other guttural exclamations from songs by the Who, the Pixies, Slayer, Bjork and dozens of others.

New York City artist LeRoy Stevens came up with the idea while listening to "A Change Is Going to Come" by the 1960s soul singer Baby Huey. The song climaxes in a series of screeches.

He later asked Manhattan record shop clerks to choose their favorite song scream and to tell him why.

With their suggestions, he pressed 500 copies of a 12-inch vinyl record.

The record is for sale for about $15 at Manhattan stores and online.
