tissi said:Does anybody know the meaning of these word? I can't find it in the dictionary, but I think it exists. Maybe it is related to music, (jazz music?), but I don't know.
Thank you for your help.
sourceThe unidentified sleeve-note writer/s tentatively suggests an Alabama origin by the singer’s use of the word “mamlish”. Obviously making connections with Alabamian Ed Bell’s “Mamlish Blues”. But Bobby Grant who is acknowledged (if at all) as a Delta Blues man, also uses the word “mamlish” on his “Nappy Head Blue&’. (see Yazoo L-l00l). Don Kent reiterates the Joe Calicot quote but adds nothing else, in his notes to Yazoo L-1002,
here:3. Mamlish Blues — Ed Bell
(Factoid: To this day, no one knows what the hell mamlish means)
Well, he is speaking of me and my surroundings. Mamish?? This word would take some indepth research to find the significance, as others have already proven. Thank goodness for Google.egueule said:Hope he's mistaken his own ignorance for the whole world's.
