“Papa Don’t Take No Mess” is a funk song performed by James Brown. An edited version of the song released as a two-part single in 1974 was Brown’s final number one R&B hit and peaked at number thirty-one on the Hot 100. The full-length version, nearly 14 minutes long, appeared on the double album Hell.” Read more…
.I was looking for something else and I found this, wow… Sneak a peek at the true character of The Hardest Working Man In Showbusiness, as he was called in life. (James Brown passed away on December 25, 2006, after a weeklong battle with pneumonia. He was 73 years old. James Brown is unquestionably one of the most influential musical pioneers of the last half-century.)
There’s an ongoing piano solo by the man himself weaving through the last part (around 6:18) of the song. It’s a window into his soul if you will; It’s totally abstract: sometimes atonal, sometimes nonsensical, sometimes automatistic, always out of the box and always good. He’s much more playful than I ever thought he’d be, it’s crazy good. I recommend earphones…
I’m not certain what it means, I’m not an expert in Jive Culture, but I’m pretty sure it means that Papa won’t take crap off of anyone.

. The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon – December During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.
