Album Review

I Put a Spell on You is Screamin' Jay's landmark Epic album from the '50s. His wild-ass reinventions of old, staid standards like "I Love Paris," "Deep Purple," and "You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want To Do It)" must be heard to be believed, but for surrealism at it best, check out "Take Me Back to My Boots and Saddle" and a dead straight reading of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" in the middle of all of it. The perfect opening shot from this one-of-a-kind artist.

I put a spell on you - Review

Hi! Just heard the song "I put a spell on you" in both the censored version and the original. This dude where so insane that you just have to hear it to believe it. The original version was banned on US radioes at that time and I do really understand why. He was so unbelievably drunk during the recording that he had to relearn the song by listening to it later. The censored version is very different from the original but it is brilliant in another way. This album has the original. Download and enjoy.
