Gorgeous vinyl release by Voodoo magic man Screamin’ Jay Hawkins at his most spellbinding and hypnotizing best performing the classic “I Put a Spell on You” as well as fan favorites such as “Portrait of a Man,” “Don’t Deceive Me” and many more! 12-song set from Cleopatra Records.
"When we began recording ("I Put A Spell On You")," Screamin' Jay noted, "we started out with a slow version. A week later I was sitting at home, and they bring me a 78 of the thing. I put it on, I played it again and again. I thought they'd lied to me: this couldn't possibly be me singing like that. So I tried to see if I could reproduce that style of singing. I contorted my mouth this way and that. I couldn't do it. Finally I poured myself some J&B Scotch, poured that down, and then I was able to do it like the record."
