i put a spell on you...


RPPC of a guy dressed up like an indian, doing some hocus pocus on a monkey, standing on a drum... i once recorded a 78 with a tune called "monkey in a dog cart"( or perhaps it was "dog in a monkey cart") at 33rpm instead of 78 and didn't realize it. i have to admit i kind of enjoyed it at the wrong speed better. since there's a monkey in the song title and the photo, it seems they need to live together... as if the guy dressed up as an indian is chasing the monkey around the drum in a very relaxed and gentle way... like they're waltzing a bit, and maybe drinking some lemonade together with two straws...listen.

I've heard this before (we had a copy at the archive I worked in) and I love this tipsy, slowed-down version...

i like it slow too. when i was in high school, i had a friend who was half insane. we'd go to his house and play guitar, smoke pot, and after a while he'd put on a carole king 45 of "i feel the earth" at 33, and damn, if it didn't sound just like hendrix!

i can't imagine being stoned and listening to carol king earth moving at a slow speed. i'm surprised your still alive after that one! if it sounded like hendrix methinks your friend wasn't the only one half insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
