Description

Rocks on CD

2008 collection from the godfather of Gothic Rock that contains 31 classics, featuring the original hit version of 'I Put a Spell on You'. Screamin' Jay Hawkins' records didn't go over-the-top; they started over-the-top and got more berserk from there. He lived as he sang. Mixing voodoo rhythms and horror film props, he invented Gothic Rock, a genre that includes Alice Cooper, Arthur Brown, the antics of Black Sabbath's Ozzy Osbourne, the horror film make-up of Kiss, not to mention the Rocky Horror Show. Hawkins also paved the way for George Clinton and Cameo whose lead singer, Larry Blackmon, emerged, like Jay, from a huge silver coffin. And, oh yes, he wrote and recorded the original version of 'I Put a Spell on You'. Bear Family.
