Before the "Screaming" sobriquet?
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 8:11pm Billy Jam:

this song is amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:11pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Time to take the motorcycle out to get some gas in it. Wish I would've bought a helmet with Bluetooth. Looking forward to the anniversary show next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:12pm ultradamno:

I think he had to go through a "hollerin'" apprenticeship period.

Great, great song. agreed.
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:12pm JtotheK:

@Dan - my question exactly! ‘Conversational Tone’ Hawkins doesn’t have the same catchiness ...
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:13pm JtotheK:

Hi Mr Fine Wine. Good evening one and all. Excuse me while I grab a brahski.

after the spell didn't work, @LD
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:14pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Ha you guys. I don't have time to look up a discography, but I assume it predates "Spell"...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:16pm ultradamno:

1955 according to wiki, one year earlier

Awesome Jimmy Ricks track!!!
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:18pm Little Danny:

Agreed! I know a coupla great versions, but I think Ricks's is tops. His voice is so right for it.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:20pm Little Danny:

It does look like '56's "I Put a Spell On You" 45 is where he officially became Screamin' Jay.
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:23pm P-90:

He came a long, long way from his teenage “Whisperin’ Jay Hawkins” days
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:25pm Mr. Fine Wine:

What about his Mouthin' Jay days?
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:28pm Little Danny:

Unrelated. Hawkins's performance as a Memphis hotel manager in Jarmusch's Mystery Train is such a pleasure
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:28pm P-90:

Well, if you want to go all the way back to “Teethin’ Jay Hawkins”...
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:29pm JtotheK:

‘Hushed Volume’ Hawkins was an underrated era.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:29pm chresti:

Haha P-90
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:30pm Hot Fish:

Similarly, it makes one wonder if there was ever a Mr. Fortified Wine.
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:30pm JtotheK:

Haven’t seen Mystery Train. On the list!

Jiffy Squid!?
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:31pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Har. Rufus Thomas also appears in Mystery Train!
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:31pm Little Danny:

@ultradanno: GOOD LORD YES!
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:33pm Little Danny:

Man the Volumes really had some great 45s. Totally new to me, that one
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:34pm JtotheK:

Have seen Jarmusch Tom Waits “Down By Law” though.
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:35pm JtotheK:

Oh, Mystery Train is available thru Criterion Channel so I can watch it!

Sorry MFW got distracted and just realized it was 7:30 here.

Welcome, MN.

Area shop had this Four Pros 45 in the “free with purchase” section...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:39pm ultradamno:

I love those distracted sounding background vocals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:40pm ultradamno:

@MFW It's one of Jay's more memorable line reading from the movie

Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 8:42pm JakeGould:

“Mystery Train” is a really great film on all levels. But the Japanese tourists in Memphis? Best part. Rufus Thomas hits them up for a light in the train station.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:45pm Mr. Fine Wine:

...which led me to curse the New York Times and throw my copy to the floor in anger...they ran a still from Mystery Train with the review, and the caption ID'd the actors playing the Japanese couple but didn't mention that RUFUS THOMAS WAS FEATURED PROMINENTLY IN THE PIC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:45pm ultradamno:

There's a great story related by Jarmusch on the BR/DVD's from Criterion. Jay had served in the South Pacific and been tortured there. He claimed to be having a problem with working with the young Japanese actors...until he met them, found out they were big fans, had them fawn all over him, and all was well.
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:45pm JtotheK:

(... re Four Pros 45 - it had a crack - but plays!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:45pm ultradamno:

@MFW, yeah, no excuse for that, I agree.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 8:46pm JakeGould:

The New York Times is really hard to defend on the pop culture front.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:46pm Little Danny:

The movie exudes an atmosphere in such an appealing and specific way
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 8:49pm JakeGould:

@ultradamno: It’s kinda believable. When I was a kid in the 1970s in NYC being openly anti-German was acceptable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:50pm ultradamno:

We're about the same age, sounds like. I experienced much the same in the midwest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:50pm chresti:

Barracuda the car or dance?
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 8:50pm JakeGould:

@MrFineWine: If a loudmouth clown like me knows that was Rufus Thomas maybe I can take over David Brooks gig? You never know!!!!
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:52pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Yes, that makes sense, JakeGould.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 8:52pm JakeGould:

I think Sarah Silverman is the only person I heard of recently openly talking about how her family would give anyone who owned a German car grief as a kid. Part of her Los Angeles Jew girl upbringing. Good woman!
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:55pm Mr. Fine Wine:

We had a bit of that too.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:55pm Little Danny:

I love Sarah Silverman but she's from New Hampshire
  Fri. 5/31/19 8:56pm JtotheK:

Great show, thanks for the tunes Mr Fine Wine! Cheers everybody!!!

Thanks FW!!!
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 8:57pm Little Danny:

Thanks MFW! Happy DSV anniversary/birthday in advance!
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 8:58pm JakeGould:

I don’t know everything. That’s why David Brooks is smiling right now.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/31/19 9:00pm Hot Fish:

R.I.P Roky
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:00pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks for the great half hour. I’ll check out the first half.

See you all at Mr. Finewine’s anniversary hop!
