Screamin' Jay Hawkins and the Fuzztones

From 1984 doing 'I Put a Spell on You'. Did I tell you I met Screamin' Jay Hawkins about this time? Backstage when he played the Bristol Bierkeller I attempted to interview him and he chewed me out if that is the correct expression - frightened me to death. Great voice, great persona - heartily recommend a compilation of his greatest hits Voodoo Jive: The Best of Screamin' Jay Hawkins looks like the one to get.
