3AM Eternal: Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, “Frenzy!” (1957)

Bluesman Screamin’ Jay Hawkins was, to put it mildly, a character. Best known for his insane appearance and his outrages voodoo/psychobilly performances, he is an acquired taste, but one that always seems to get pulled out around Hallowe’en time. Personally, I prefer this number over his hit, “I Put A Spell On You,” because I like the rock and roll groove of this record.
