I like to go to the Prospect Park Zoo simply to count peacocks and feed sheep out of my hand. That’s it, those are the reasons.

This is “chillsitch" in musical form, all leaned back and sunglasses and a tall glass of lemonade. Lewis recorded this, one of the earliest rocksteady singles, in 1966 in Jamaica when he was just 19 years old. It’s so loose and relaxed but never droney or boring. It manages to be both lazy and full of life all at once, like a nap in the sun. Lewis went on to make records for the rest of his life, although he turned to gospel in the ’90s and ’00s. He lived in Brooklyn during the later part of his life and I for one hope he took it easy. Lewis died last month at age 66.
Take it easy!
