Screamin' Jay Hawkins - Screamin' Jay Rocks - CD


31 classics, featuring the original hit version of I Put A Spell On You! - Comprehensive liner notes from ueber-fan Bill Millar! - Screamin' Jay Hawkins' records didn't go over-the-top; they started over-the-top and got more berserk from there. He lived as he sang. A simple question, like how he came up with the nickname 'Screamin'' elicited this response: "I went to Nitro, West Virginia. This is 1950. There was a big, big, huge fat lady at the bar. Just allow your mind to roam free when I say 'fat'…Glutton! Beast! O-bese! She made the average elephant look like a pencil, that's how fat she was. She was downing Black and White scotch and Jack Daniels at the same time, and whenever she looked up at me she shouted 'Scream, baby, scream!' I said to myself: 'You wanted a name?'" Screamin' Jay's influence can be found wherever music has sunk to new depths of depravity. Mixing voodoo rhythms and horror film props, he invented gothic rock. And, oh yes, he wrote and recorded the original version of I Put A Spell On You.
