Scientist Rids The World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires

We all know & love our Greensleeves Scientist dub albums, with their catchy Tony McDermott designed comic book style covers featuring anything from boxing matches (Heavyweight Dub Champion & Big Showdown) & soccer matches (Scientist Wins The World Cup) to attacking space aliens (Scientist Meets the Space Invaders 1981) & attacking video games (Scientist Encounters Pac Man).
The first album i bought in this series of Greensleeves Records releases was the rather long winded 1981 release "Scientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires" most likely chosen for the cool cover which pictures of all the famous Universal Studios horror characters. (i love horror movies btw).
