Full Show Friday: Screamin' Jay Hawkins Tokyo 1990

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Screamin' Jay Hawkins!

This month RTBE will pay homage to The Blues with 5 special shows for every Friday in October. So get sad, get happy eat your greens and get the blues.
What a treat on this Halloween, we get the freakydeaky blues of one of the all-time great performers, Screamin' Jay Hawkins. If you haven't seen the documentary on him yet, you need too, what a life- or at least what a world class yarn spinner.

Nobody could be more perfect to wrap up this monthly blues series on Halloween then Screamin' Jay. So happy there was a show on youtube. This is the reason we decide to pick October to celebrate the blues so we could on Halloween with Screamin' Jay.  Just another example of the scope and depth of the blues, they certainly have put a spell on us.
