 My friend over at Got the Fever had a request for Joan's version of Season of the Witch and I thought that would be a great choice and it goes well with Halloween.

When it gets really hot out, a lot of us try to get as close to Naked as possible, without being too obscene.   Being it's October most of us don't have to worry about getting too hot, but then Joan is always hot.  This Naked is an album released only in Japan by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in 2004. Ten of the songs here would eventually surface in 2006 on her Sinner album. Some of the songs were reworked for the 2006 release and a couple songs had appeared on some earlier releases, most notably Fetish. Needless to say this is a must have for Joan Jett completests such as myself and can be quite the dickens to find. The only collection I know of that has her recording of Science Fiction Double Feature from her stint in the Rocky Horror Picture Show which is alone worth the purchase price, then there's also the requested track Season of the Witch.

No no no ... A great disservice to the original version of both tunes. Season of the Witch has been completely butchered.

I, of course, disagree. Anytime an artist tries to recast an original - or just plain covers it, I look at it as an alternate means of expression. JJ certainly does a great job here and I'm might glad that you put it out there homercat!

Thanks for the time and effort - well worth hearing it. And the cover of TRHPS? Icing on the cake my friend! Great job, thank you!
