In 1956 "I Put A Spell On You" was released on the Okeh label, this release was what really changed Hawkin's fortunes. According to legend, Hawkins intended it as a refined ballad, but he and his band were all somewhat the worse for alcohol when they finally entered the studio. The result was intense and mesmerizing. Although never a chart hit, the record had a massive impact. Covered by Nina Simone, Marilyn Manson and literally dozens of others, it became a modern standard. Enjoy it once again on glorious vinyl, along with "Yellow Coat", "Hong Kong" and "Ol' Man River".
