For your spooky pleasure. Black American music has long been associated with both Hoodoo, and in the Caribbean and parts of Louisiana, Voodoo. There are many references to the Hoodoo Man, or Hoodoo Lady, who would cast a spell for you, or supply you with a 'Conjure Bag', a 'Mojo Hand' or other charms to do the same. The 'Black Cat Bone', the 'John The Conqueror Root', or the Voodoo 'Gris Gris. Sometimes to give you power over money, or other powers, but almost always to give you control of the opposite sex. With this stuff, you could become The Hoochie Coochie Man! A treatise could be written about the cultural meanings of Hoodoo and Voodoo in Blues lyrics and indeed Catherine Yronwode's 'Hoodoo In Theory And Practice - An Introduction to African-American Rootwork' is a highly recommended read. She says "Hoodoo consists of a large body of African folkloric practices and beliefs with a considerable admixture of American Indian botanical knowledge and European folklore. Although most of its adherents are black, contrary to popular opinion, it has always been practised by both whites and blacks in America. Other regionally popular names for hoodoo in the black community include "conjuration," "conjure," "witchcraft," "rootwork," and "tricking." Whichever term you use, Hoodoo or Voodoo, this CD is packed with a diverse selection of great performances from the stars, and journeymen of Blues, R & B and Jazz. A scary musical must for your Halloween Night………… Informative booklet notes by Dave Clarke.
