Screamin Jay

I don't know that many people who are really familiar with the music of the late Screamin Jay Hawkins, yet most have heard his name. Maybe he was a victim of his own schtick, with the smoking skull and the coffin and all that. Still, he was a fine singer and R&B interpretor.
Here he is live, singing Alligator Wine

Old Man River. This one is very funny.

I put a spell on you. Wow.

You can stop right here, but if you're a brave soul, listen on my friends. If you haven't heard Screamin Jay sing Constipation Blues, you're missing out on something. I'm not quite sure what, but believe me, you're missing out.

This may be the most flat out silly blues posted on Squeezemylemon.
