Evil Woman (Don’t Play Your Games With Me) Crow (Amaret, 1969)
Evil Woman (Don’t Play Your Games With Me) was originally written and recorded by the Minneapolis band Crow for their debut album, Crow Music. You may recognize it as Evil Woman, a cover by Black Sabbath. The English rock band covered Evil Woman in 1970 for their debut album, Black Sabbath and was released as their debut single. Oddly, Evil Woman was not included on Black Sabbath’s debut U.S. album. It was replaced with Wicked World. Evil Woman was finally released by Black Sabbath in 2002(! in the U.S.) on the Black Sabbath compilation album, Symptom of the Universe: The Original Black Sabbath 1970-1976.
Crow’s original version peaked at #19 in the U.S.
