    There’s a neat, moody piece of music from the second installment of the “Case of Charles Dexter Ward” (played over the description of the assault on Curwen’s lair) which also shows up in the third part of the podcast covering “The Shadow Over Innsmouth” (where the narrator finds out that he’s stuck in the town for the evening) that doesn’t appear to be present in either volume of the soundtrack. Is that particular piece available or did I accidentally overlook it while skimming through the track samples?

    The eyes are green behind like a cat’s. They reflect back the light of the lamps.
