CASTING MY SPELL * JOHNNY OTIS AND MARCI LEE * CAPITOL 15018 * UK
Written by Edwin Johnson and Alvin Johnson Casting My
Spell has a scorching Bo Diddleyesque rhythm with fantastic 'Hoodoo'
lyrics, sort of Who Do You Love
on acid. Check out the second verse: I took a goat's tooth, an old shoe, and
put them in the ground ground, ground ground, ground ground. I took an old dish,
a dry fish, and made a crazy sound sound, sound sound, sound sound. I took a
goose egg, a frog leg, and hid them in a sack sack, sack sack, sack sack. I got
a Hindu, to tattoo, a genii on my back back, back back, back back. !!!
The vocals are sung by Johnny Otis and Marci Lee, a vocalist I can find nothing about, she maybe never cut records under her own name.
