The Ventures version....ehh...the Mort Stevens TV version leaves this one in the dust. Underrated, and that's largely due to the wrongheaded only associating him with the Hee-Haw TV series. Ah, yes. Dark Shadows was (arguably) at the height of its status as a pop culture phenomenon, and this hit single is some pretty heavy evidence of that. Jonathan (Barnabas Collins) Frid also had a single released, but It did not chart as high as "Quentin's Theme." The song's author--series composer Robert Cobert--was nominated for a Grammy for this track. Further, the songs were available on the LP, The Original Music From Dark Shadows (Phillips 314, 1969), which has been rereleased a number of times over the decades. Common for the period, actors would accompany Cobert's music with strange, spoken word lyrics (in character), so for anyone (at the time) looking for a clean soundtrack, you were not going to get that with this LP. AAAARRGHHH!!
