Trick or Treat?

Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas releases a wildly fun and rockin' new single for Halloween this year, "The House is Haunted"   


The original tune "The House is Haunted by the Echo of Your Last Goodbye" is a classic  swing song from 1938, but the Lonesome Fellas cleverly morph it into a swing/rockabilly/blues crossover,  featuring the distinctive and renown tempo from  Screamin' Jay Hawkins'  "I Put a Spell on You".  


The spotlight is turned to  saxophonist Eric Schneider, who wails away like Sam Taylor from the Screamin' Jay renditon, while guitarist Neal Alger breaks out a hard blues guitar.    Bassist Chris Bernhardt leads the throbbing  tempo and  drummer Phil Gratteau spanks a hard, rock-blues beat.  Over the top of it all, vocalist Solitaire Miles belts the lyrics for "Haunted" with her notorious  Patsy Cline/Billie Holiday hybrid  vocal, consummating a cacophony of melody, tempo and genres. 


When you listen to the first few bars you get a TRICK, thinking that Miles will be warbling the first lines of "I Put a Spell on You", but Fellas fans are in for one hell of a TREAT  when she delivers a totally different and unexpected  melody on top of the infamous Screamin' Jay beat.   "The House is Haunted" is an entertaining and lively addition to your Halloween collection.   - JM Reid, Chicago Music Guide
 

The tune is available for digital download on Bandcamp in several high quality file types available including mp3, wav and flac.  https://solitairemiles.bandcamp.com/track/susie-blue-the-lonesome-fellas-the-house-is-haunted
