Jack Kittel – Psycho (Hard to Find 45’s)

So it’s been awhile since my last “Hard to Find 45” post, and I know that you’re all DYING to hear a new, obscure tune. The following song is probably the eeriest “Hard to Find 45” post yet.

“Psycho” was originally written in 1966 by blind songwriter Leon Payne (who wrote songs for Hank Williams, Elvis and Johnny Cash) inspired by the story of Charles Whitman, the crazed sniper at the University of Texas.

It was originally recorded by Eddie Noack, as well as by George Jones. The 1973 rendition by Jack Kittel is considered to be the best version of the song. It definitely has the creepiest vibes to it.
