The legendary Screamin' Jay Hawkins was a great influence on many musicians and his performances were so highly provocative in their originality that even today they can be considered 'revolutionary'.
This program features a live concert performance by Screamin' Jay Hawkins including such songs as I Put A Spell On You and Shout. ~ Cammila Albertson, Rovi
Although it's a studio effort (recorded while Hawkins was on tour in Australia a year before the album's release), I Shake My Stick at You manages to capture the energy and looseness of a live gig – in fact, with the addition of audience cheering, you could be fooled into believing it's a concert recording.
Cow Fingers and Mosquito Pie is a magically weird 19-song collection of the bizarre shouter's mid-'50s OKeh/Epic output, when he was at the height of his strange and terrifying vocal powers. In addition to the prerequisite "I Put a Spell on You," and the surreal rockers "Yellow Coat," "Hong Kong," "Alligator Wine," and "Little Demon"; there's the amusing "There's Something Wrong With You"; a previously unissued "You Ain't Foolin' Me"; and a deranged takeoff on the cowboy ditty "Take Me Back to My Boots and Saddle." And what Screamin' Jay Hawkins does to the formerly stately "I Love Paris," and "Orange Colored Sky" is truly indescribable!.
Creedence Clearwater Revival's music is still a staple of American and worldwide radio airplay. The band, led by front man and composer Tom Fogerty, has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. The live DVD recordeed in Argentina features nearly all their hits such as: Born on the bayou, Who’ll stop the rain, Susie Q, Hey tonight, Long as I can see the light, I heard it through the grapevine, I put a spell on you, Have you ever seen the rain and many others.
