NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #290 ~ 11-20-21]

Pictured: Screamin’ Jay Hawkins in Mystery Train (dir. Jim Jarmusch, 1989.)

The record [“I Put A Spell On You”] became an underground sensation. Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’s vocal hallucinations were perceived as being invocatory of all manner of horrible things, from anal rape to cannibalism. Self-appointed guardians of morality made their displeasure known to the record company (which exhorted, “D.J.’s – Be brave,” in an ad published in the November 24, 1956, issue of Billboard). The record was re-mastered so that its closing groan coda* was censored to a fast fade-out. This measure failed to appease, and the record was in the end banned by most radio stations. The pubescent sleaze-seekers of America, however, continued to buy the record in great numbers. It became a hit without a chart position.

— Nick Tosches, “Horror and the Foot-Shaped Ashtray” from Unsung Heroes of Rock & Roll.
