Here are Robert Petway's lyrics:

Well I laid down
Down last night
Well I tried to take my rest
Notion struck me last night, babe I, I believe I take a stroll out, out west
Take a stroll out, out west, take a stroll out, out west
Take a stroll out west, take a stroll out west

What if I were a catfish, mama?
I said, swimmin' deep down in, deep blue sea
Have these gals now, sweet mama, settin' out
Settin' out hooks for, for me, settin' out hook for, for me
Settin' out hook for, for me, settin' out hook for me
Settin' out hook for me, settin' out hook for me

Well I went down, yeah, down to the church house, yes
Well I called on me to pray
Fell on my knees, now mama, I didn't know, Lord
Not a word to, to say, not a word to, to say, not a word to
Not a word to, not a word to say, not a word to say, not a word to say

Play 'em, man, play 'em a long time

I'm gonna write, write me a letter baby
I'm gonna write it just to see
See my babe, my baby who she's thinkin' of
Little ol' thing on, on me, little ol' thing on, on me
Little ol' thing on, on me, little ol' thing on, on me
Little ol' thing on me, oh little thing on me

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 10:06am Linda Lee:

imagine literally sitting at Jimi's feet learning to play guitar by watching. that's how June Millington of Fanny learned her trade, in part. i think she's one of the best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 10:07am Doug Schulkind:

@Funky16Corners
You can see the reference in Jimi's version of the lyrics:

Well I wish I was a catfish,
Swimming in, lord, the deep blue sea.
I'd have a, all you pretty women,
Fishin' after me, fishin' after me,
Fishin' after me. Yeah.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

When I went down, my girlfriends house.
And I sat down, lord, on her front step.
And she said a, come in now Jimi.
My husband just now left, just now left.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

Well there's two, two trains runnin',
But there's not one, lord, that's goin' my way.
You know there's a one train runnin' at midnight.
Other one leave just for a day,
Leave just for a day.
Ohh yeah, ohh yeah, ohh yeah, ohh yeah.

Did Moses have his low E string tuned down to a lower A?

Cuts like a knife, eh Lore? Bone rattling.

@Funky16Corners
Moses Williams was in fact playing a string of wire.

Great Moussa Doumbia track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 11:09am Doug Schulkind:

There is a 10-minute version of Keleya that has a wicked sax solo. But I didn't have room for it this time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 11:12am Doug Schulkind:

For WFMU's old blog Beware of the Blog, I once wrote this about a compilation of Moussa Doumbia's hits that came out in 2007:

"Godfather of Soul wannabes sprang up like kudzu in the 1960s and '70s, and, outside of Chicago and Detroit, the most badass Brown imitators per hectare came from the gritty urban centers of East and West Africa. Anwar Richard and Matata ruled Nairobi, Geraldo Pino; the Heartbeats concquered Lagos, but the heaviest of heavyweight Afrofunkateers may have been Mali's sax-playing, leather-lunged soul belter Moussa Doumbia, who toiled in semiobscurity in the nightclubs of Ivory Coast's capital city Abidjan. Doumbia was a cool cat but no copycat. While others merely reproduced the James Brown sound, Doumbia seemingly conjured, on a nightly basis, the very soul of Soul Brother No. 1 itself. His massive funk workouts featured all the withering, from-the-gut grunts and squeals, but they were layered over a dense thicket of his native Dioula rhythms—along with, of course, skronking horns and skanky guitars. This French compilation of Doumbia's rare singles and one album may be the greatest single-disc trove of African funk ever released."

Here's one more disco track from Africa (Nigeria). Had to slip it in here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 11:50am Doug Schulkind:

Fantastic fluttery organ on this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 11:52am Jeff Golick:

Are we all just going to blithely ignore the lack of a jazz set today? I feel personally attacked.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 11:52am Sem:

A fine three hour musical tour, Captain Doug. Thanks and hope to catch up with you and all next time, if the tides permit.
  Fri. 6/14/19 11:53am Marie:

@Brian--that is what I am looking for in a movie--to be so engaged that I lose myself. Gotta say, I can't stand M Night Shamalayan's movies or those like them
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 11:53am Brian in UK:

Jeff you are getting too set in your plays.
