Rex, I love the instrumentals that start your show. But I’m not going to go a-record hunting you like you.
I need the lazy man’s option. Any CD complications of this stuff you can recommend?

another great book is...Screamin Jay Hawkins All Time Greatest Hits...A Novel...by Mark Binelli.... Screamin Jay is way to great to be included into the rock hall of fame in cleveland...constipation blues forever...
  Sat. 10/5/19 2:36pm RevPhil:

I met Screamin Jay briefly backstage at the N.Y. Academy of Music back in 1971.
I saw him performed again in July 1972 at N.Y. Central Park where he wanted to jump off the Central Park stage and into the audience and he could of got hurt or even killed if he did that.
In the late 70's he was interviewed by Don K. Reed on WCBS-FM where he said he was a alcoholic.

Every teenager had this inner voice that represented his or her wild and rebellious emotions.That inner voice was Screamin Jay Hawkins when he sang for us. He was our alter ego, our identity.What a beautiful voice.

Great interview, Rex.
Always enjoyed Screamin Jay, and knew about some of his antics, but this really interesting
