But I Know They Must Be Crazy

To compare and contrast here's the Dr John version of I Walk On Gilded Splinters, from his deranged Gris Gris album (1968). This is bizarre voodoo music, with chanting, voices jumping out of the mix, Dr John's own gravelly vocal, tom tom drums, weird instrumentation and general craziness. Late at night, in semi-darkness, a little wine imbibed, this song can spook a little.
