Jim Cannon - Underwater Man / My Evil Eye
For Underwater Man, a guy skin diving meets a mermaid and they fall in love. The problem is, he can't live underwater and she can't live on land. He comes up with a great solution which you will hear at the end of the record. The highlight of this record for me is the gurgling underwater talking. Weirdness!!
For My Evil Eye, he uses his powers from his evil eye to get the chicks. Includes the creepy lyrics, "When I get a girl wrapped up in my arms. And if she gets afraid that I'll do her some harm. I can make her stay when she wants to go. Make her say yay when she want's to say no. Ain't tellin' no lie. It's my evil eye." Super cool organ sounds on this one and a good beat.
Couldn't find any info on Jim other than the fact that he had another record (assuming it's the same Jim Cannon) on the Memphis Label with the tracks, Stagger-Stumble-Fall and Highway Fever.
