Song # 5: Here Lies Love-Mr. Undertaker

roy-hawkings

This hidden gem that has only recently been added to my Halloween music collection was a b-side by a different artist than the a-side. Mr. Undertaker was Roy Hawkins. He was the original writer and performer of “The Thrill is Gone”, made popular by B. B. King. “Here Lies Love” was released in 1955. The a-side was “W-P-L-J” by The 4 Deuces; the initials were slang for port wine mixed with lemon juice.
