    Cedell Big G Davis - slide blues guitar player born in Helena, Arkansas - an original player on the 'King Biscuit Flour Hour' the 1950's radio show - He had contracted Polio as a child, and then was trampled in a bar shootout, and had no ability to move his fingers - so he wedged a butterknife into his paralyzed hand to use as a slide, and turned the guitar around so he could pick the strings with his left thumb to create this unique style. Cedell was brought to New England for a few weeks by Henry Kouffman - to play a few gigs and a studio session where we could record this original blues performer. Cedell also came by my first studio on Chapel St. in Newton to do the interviews and play a little. Henry and I did an hour show that has never been released - sorry we don't have credits for the other players - enjoy this demo.

    From the Mama Says I'm Crazy (2002)...Fat Possum CD 0364-2

    Recorded August 1967, in Como, Mississippi by George Mitchell...Fred McDowell, vocal and guitar; Johnny Woods, harmonica





    One of the most talented musicians of his time, Fred McDowell performed to large crowds all over the United States and Europe for several decades. He also spent most of his life working at a service station in Como, Mississippi, where I first approached him. This was in 1967. Fred couldn't have been more excited about doing a recording session and insisted we hire Johnny Woods, his old friend and a local legend, to accompany him on harp.
    No one in the area had seen Johnny in about either years, but Fred had heard he was back in town. Three hours on a dirt road later, we pulled up to a dilapidated shack in a town called Senatobia and found Johnny Woods - who I later found to be a cordial, gentle man, forty-something, one hell of a harp player - passed out on the front porch.
    Crammed inside the two-room house were fifteen or twenty men boisterously enjoying their Sunday afternoon, drinking and shooting craps. Hey, Shake 'Em, what you doing? they greeted Fred, who is best known in the area for his performance of Shake 'Em on Down. When Fred sat down with his guitar and a bottleneck, everyone joined in. A couple of songs later, Woods dragged himself in, still in a haze so thick you could see it in his eyes. He started rummaging through his pockets for his harmonica, ahd when Fred launched into Shake 'Em on Down, Johnny's shrill harmonica joined the whang of the guitar to make a sound powerful enough to bring the walls down. We arranged for Woods to meet us at Fred's house the following evening.
    Woods never showed that night, so we spent the next few days trying to track him down. We finally found him at a barbeque, stopped behind a car sneaking a swig from a friend's bottle of corn. Wodds agreed to go right then to a nearby house to record.
    It was hard to believe that these two men had not played together in eight years. No practice was necessary; there were no second takes. They sat facking each other while Fred gave Johnny instructions under his breath. The veins in Fred's face bulged as he sang and played, and the spit drooled from Johnny's harmonica, which might as well have been a natural extension of his mouth. It is an honest and electrifying thrill to present two fo the greatest living blues men togeter, on tape, for you, and the rest of the world to hear. ~ George Mitchell, 1967 (from the liner notes)

    ------------------------

    I Got a Woman (originally titled I've Got a Woman) is a song co-written and recorded by American R&B/soul musician Ray Charles and released as a single in December 1954 on the Atlantic label as Atlantic 45-1050 b/w Come Back Baby. Both sides later appeared on his 1957 album Ray Charles (subsequently reissued as Hallelujah I Love Her So).

    Origin

    The song builds on It Must Be Jesus by the Southern Tones, that Ray Charles was listening to on the radio while on the road with his band in the summer of 1954.
    He and a member of his band, trumpeter Renald Richard, penned a song that was built along a gospel-frenetic pace with secular lyrics and a jazz-inspired rhythm and blues (R&B) background.
    The song would be one of the prototypes for what later became termed as soul music after Charles released What'd I Say nearly five years later.

    Recording

    The song was recorded late 1954 in the Atlanta studios of Georgia Tech radio station WGST. It was a hit—Charles' first—climbing quickly to #1 R&B in January 1955.
    Charles told the Pop Chronicles that he performed this song for about a year before he recorded in on November 18, 1954.
    The song would lead to more hits for Charles during this period when he was on Atlantic.
    It was later ranked #235 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, one of Charles' five songs on the list.
    A re-recorded version by Ray Charles, entitled I Gotta Woman (ABC-Paramount 10649) reached #79 on the Billboard pop chart in 1965.

    Cover versions

    Other versions that have made the pop or R&B charts in the US are those by:
    Jimmy McGriff (#20 pop, #5 R&B, 1962),
    Freddie Scott (#48 pop, 1963)
    and Rick Nelson (#49 pop, 1963).

    The song has also been covered by many other artists, including:

    Elvis Presley - Elvis Presley (1956)
    The Beatles - Live at the BBC
    Bill Cosby
    Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings
