This sunday morning we do something a little different, we bring you a healthy dose of the original goth, the voodoo master of soul, blues and rock, Screamin' Jay Hawkins with his orchestral jazz-pop album At Home With Screamin' Jay Hawkins (the full album). One of the things we love about Jay Hawkins is the fact that he was a performer who shocked audiences with acts of voodoo, suicide, re-animation, and prayer in an era when there was no such thing as "goth" music or culture in the way we know it today, yet and still he laid a foundation within the context of black American music that would later build those genres. His presence in the realm of blues and rock gave birth to rockabilly culture as we know it today. Jay Hawkins has been immortalized in the cinema of Jim Jarmusch with appearances in films such as Mystery Train. On this Sunday, in the month of October, the month of Halloween we hope you are well wherever you may be, enjoy the music...
