Blues Lyrics and Hoodoo
« on: March 18, 2006, 10:42:30 AM »
I've tried performing a search to see if the following long established web site has been referenced previously but, if I'm using the search facilty correctly, it seems not, so:

Hey Bunk,

I've wondered if Cat would ever take an interest in Weenie Campbell, and I've always enjoyed her site. Thanks for posting it here.

All for now.

I thought it had been mentioned but perhaps not. Definitely worth several visits. It is, and has been for awhile, in the Web Links section in the left hand menu.

Anyone here ever ordered a mojo bag from Cat? ;)

She sure is a dedicated and interesting lady. I wish I had the time to listen and transcribe some on that list of required lyrics.

Oops I'm ashamed to say that in my six moths here I haven't 'clicked' that link. Strange it didn't come up in the search, couldn't have got the criteria correct.

Not I, but she did very kindly send me her book 'Hoodoo Herb And Root Magic; A Materica Magica of African-American Conjure' which has proved to be an invaluable reference tool. Most of the information therein is now contained on her web site but for me not as "user friendly" as the strict alphabetical entries as in the book. But I'm a bit old fashioned like that.... :(

Yes, the site is mentioned several times on Weenie.  The thing to have to keep in mind is when using the "quick search" e.g. the box that appears in the header -- the search is Board specific.  So, to search the entire site, make sure you start at the Forum Index otherwise the search is Board specific e.g. if you are in "Copuntry Blues Lyrics" the search is in "Country Blues Lyrics".

You can also specify a variety of boards to search in via the full search (the Forum Search Menu option)

Cheers,

Or if you use the Search (by Google) near the bottom of the Main Menu in the left column (above Contact Us) and type in Lucky Mojo it also searches the non-forum content and will show the link in the Links section.

So, three levels of search available:

Search button in Header at top of any Forum page: Board specific search

Forum Search under Forum in Main Menu: Forum specific search which can be limited to specific boards.

Search near bottom of Main Menu. Searches all content.

All for now.

To the best of my searching I've not found mention here of the attempt started in 1996ish by Catherine Yronwode to document CB songs which took as their subject hoodoo or related subjects. I think she got about as far as transcribing a couple of hundred only half of which she put on her web site: http://www.luckymojo.com/blues.html

So where can you contact her now?, there no longer seems to be a prewar blues list on yahoo server anymore. Bunker Hill, what thread are you responding to?

I'm sure elsewhere on the website there is contact information. I wasn't responding to anything only curious if anybody hereabouts had come across this attempt at lyric transcriptions of a specific blues subject.

Surprised there's no reference in the forums, but the site is in the Weenie Web Links section (left hand menu)...

I've always thought Cat was one of the more interesting posters on the pre-war blues list. I've often thought of dropping in to her Lucky Mojo store outside of Santa Rosa. I figured stopping by with the Hohoppas, next time Chez is in town, and playing a few Memphis Jug Band tunes would get a rise out of her.-G-

All for now.

Shame on me. I've been so engrossed in the discussions that I've never so much as thought to click that to see what's there!

In 2002 I purchased her book "Hoodoo, Herb And Root Magic:A Materia Magica of African-American Conjure" and it arrived with a free sachet of "Hot Foot Power"...what more could a guy want.  :P

In 1995 Cat Yronwode joined the PreWar Blues List and used to be a very active and knowledgeable member, not only in terms of voodoo and like, but also prewar blues. I've not heard from her for years. She may well be a member of RBF.

I'm pretty sure I posted something about Cat a few years back and I think her site is in Weeniepedia Links. I think she is a tremendously interesting person. If you investigate her full website you'll find she covered a wide variety of interests in her life, from comic book publishing to tantric sex. Her Hoodoo store is just up the road in Santa Rosa and back when I had a jug band I always wanted to just drive up, pile out of the car and start playing some Memphis Jug Band tunes, of which she professed to be a huge fan. Like BH, I always appreciated her posts and queries on the pre war list, but haven't seen her posting there since it was all but silenced by the RBF. She must be getting on in years and I certainly hope she's in good health.

Edit to add: I checked her wikipedia page and she's only a few years older than me, so not so long in the tooth. Gotta get up there soon.

Hi all,
I merged the new "Blues Lyrics and Hoodoo" thread with a pre-existing one of the same title.
All best,
