Screamin' Jay Hawkins
Not only was Screaming Jay Hawkins perhaps the first Horror Rocker, he was also one of the finest Rhythm & Blues and Rock 'n' Roll singers of the era. He will always be remembered for his spooky haunting classics, but it's when Jay sings the standards that you realise what a magnificent voice he possessed.
I Put A Spell On You, Frenzy, Alligator Wine, Little Demon... they are all here. Not only are these songs dark, haunting rockers that shook and shocked audiences in the 1950s, they are great songs which continue to live on via countless cover versions from bands playing many different styles of music. However, none will ever match the incredible delivery of Screaming Jay Hawkins. Truly one of a kind.
