Screamin' Jay Hawkins: What That Is! (Phillips)

John Mendelsohn, Rolling Stone, 15 November 1969

THE KEY TO this album is its honesty. Producer Milan Melvin has been faithful to Screamin' Jay and his music right down to the picture of Jay emerging from a coffin. That's how his concerts used to begin.
