Blackdove24 in this recent lively discussion on Livejournal:
http://community.livejournal.com/pjharvey/492557.html

cites Down By The Water along with Leadbelly's Salty Dog on this site:
http://www.whosampled.com/sample/view/3 ... lty%20Dog/

Specifically the "Little Fish, Big Fish" lyric. I'm pretty sure Leadbelly is singing "quarter" instead of "daughter" though. Pretty imaginative of Polly to pick up that line though.

He also cites the beat in Polly and Eric's Zaz Turned Blue as being a sample of Portishead's Glory Box. Can anyone confirm that?

That's a pretty cool site:
http://www.whosampled.com/artist/PJ%20Harvey/

I'm sure we could add to the list. It's odd that the site lists this:
http://www.pj-harvey.de/

as the "official" PJ Harvey site (it actually goes here: http://www.songwriters.de/pjharvey/).
