The Coasters - Bull Tick Waltz
Tabby Thomas - Hoodoo Party
Happy Halloween to all you guys and ghouls out there! I got beat to the punch for putting Charles Sheffield's "It's Your Voodoo Working" on here, and I had already posted Gene "Bowlegs" Miller's "Frankenstein Walk," so today's short post features two tales of oddball parties that would be just perfect for the occasion. The Coasters' "Bull Tick Waltz" brings a romping, Bobby Darin-esque groove to the depiction of what should be a problematic infestation of insects, and Charles Sheffield's Excello labelmate Tabby Thomas lays down a rhumba-oriented piece of Louisiana swamp blues with "Hoodoo Party." No tricks, just treats here!
