Mamie Perry - I'm Hurted
Now this old musty stanky 45 is some lowdown Creeps-style music. Mamie Perry has a great blues voice, but this "Gus Jenkins Orchestra" backing band is out of key with her and out of key with themselves. The slow spacious plodding style of the song, combined with the band's atonal ineptitude, gives the whole thing a sort of exotica feel. Is that a zither I hear in there? And UFO sounds? What?
"I'm hurted" sounds like something one of the Family Circus kids would say, doesn't it?
