Product Notes

Amazing and superb collection of Devilish Down-at-the-Crossroads Blues and old-time Jazz. These marvellous down-and-dirty original shockers, like Tampa Red's "Witchin Hour Blues", St. Louis Bessie's 1927 gem "Ghost Creepin Blues" and (of course) Screamin Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell on You" and Muddy Waters' "Got My Mojo Working" are all incredible, stripped-down howlers that might be expected to hear playing in R. Crumb or Anton LaVey's sitting rooms. Sippie Willis' 1925 track "Devil Dance Blues" make the price of this disc worth it alone. An outstanding collection of Hoodoo and Voodoo inspired rarely heard songs from 1925 to 1961. Absolutely beautiful in it's raw energy. Get a mason jar of Corn-Mash Moonshine Skull-Pop, slip this treasure into the CD player, and revel in the spirits - both real (from the jar) and those conjured up by these timeless recordings. Amazon Review: "Black American music has long been associated with both Hoodoo, and in the Caribbean and parts of Louisiana, Voodoo. There are many references to the Hoodoo Man, or Hoodoo Lady, who would cast a spell for you, or supply you with a 'Conjure Bag', a 'Mojo Hand' or other charms to do the same. The 'Black Cat Bone', the 'John The Conqueror Root', or the Voodoo 'Gris Gris. Sometimes to give y0u power over money, or other powers, but almost always to give you control of the opposite sex. With this stuff, you could become The Hoochie Coochie Man! A treatise could be written about the cultural meanings of Hoodoo and Voodoo in Blues lyrics. Whichever term you use, Hoodoo or Voodoo, this CD is packed with a diverse selection of great performances from the stars, and journeymen of Blues, R & B and Jazz. A scary musical must for your HalloweenNight
