Spook Rock: Marie Laveau (1974)

Country singer Bobby Bare scored his only #1 hit in 1974 with the tale of the legendary voodoo mistress, "Marie Laveau". I can remember hearing this song on the radio back then, and the local country music stations would bring this back every Halloween, appropriately enough.

The following clip is of more recent vintage, with Bare appearing at Church Street Station, which I believe is a Nashville venue, and was also the name of a music series on TNN (now Spike TV) in the 90s.
