Music: "Frenzy" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins

"...the stage in pitch darkness... a terrifying bang which scared the audience silly... Jay emerging into the spotlight over the "I Put A Spell On You" riff, Henry smoking a cigarette (you know smoking's bad for you, look at Henry) FLASH... Jay's rich baritone coming as though from the back of a swamp-filled cave... howling, screaming, grunting the lyrics, Jay suddenly whipping out a battered tenor sax, blasting the enthralled audience with all the power his lungs could command... the red spotlight, white turban, shades, a skull on the end of a pole... BANG!... FLASH!... "I put a spell on you... because... you're mine... SCREAM... all mine... CRASH!"... and now a whole album full of the choicest cuts from the man's repertoire... play it loud and often. " linernotes: Roger Eagle April 1982
