Screamin' Jay Hawkins' most famous "I Put A Spell On You" was supposed to be a blues ballad. But when he and his musicians got drunk in the studio, they churned out one of the most gut-wrenching, utterly visceral songs in the history of Pop. He groaned, moaned, spluttered and spat his way through the recording, giving it a haunting feel and ensuring a ban on many radio stations. But it became a hit, which gave him license to record more of his slightly oddball operatic music, resulting in his first album. At Home With Screamin' Jay Hawkins in 1958. Featuring dancefloor sure shots such as "Hong Kong", the stomper "Yellow Coat", "Take Me Back To My Boots And Saddle" and of course "I Put A Spell On You", it goes without saying that this record is a killer! Now available on Music On Vinyl with re-mastered audio!
