Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – The Singles 1954-1957
Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, everyone’s favourite screamer.
This record features the early singles of one of the more controversial blues men. Sreamin’ Jay Hawkins really changed the way in which music was delivered with his ghoulish stage performances which were designed to shock and amaze audiences. He wasn’t just a stage gimmick, his records really shifted the face of music and were a huge influence on bands such as Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart and he laid the path for all stage performances today. Screamin’ Jay Hawkins is the very essence of original music, he completely pushed the boundaries on what was accepted at the time and people couldn’t get enough of it. Almost 60 years later we still can’t get enough of him! – Mrs Moon Cat
