Everybody Jam! (CD)
Everybody Jam! (CD)- Scatman John
Everybody Jam! is the second major label (and third overall) studio album by Scatman John. The album continues along the thematic lines of the first album but with an evolved sound, and cemented his popularity in Japan, released there with five bonus tracks.
The album released two international singles: the title track tribute to Louis Armstrong and "Let It Go", both of which were successful. Additionally, the Japanese bonus tracks "Pripri Scat" and "Su Su Su Super Ki Re i" charted successfully there as single releases. "The Invisible Man" is a cover of the Queen song, adding numerous ingredients not present in the original. Arguably the most popular song on the album is "U-Turn": a revamped version of "Hey You" which earlier appeared as the B-side to "Song of Scatland".
The album reached No. 45 in Switzerland. In Japan it reached No. 17 and remained in the Top 40 for 9 weeks, selling just under 100,000 copies, making it a minor success compared to Scatman's World, but still an accomplishment for a foreign artist.
