Let’s Explore The Blues – Georgia Cotton Pickers
In my last post we looked at Barbeque Bob (Robert Hicks). In addition to his solo career, he was also a member of the world’s first supergroup. He, along with Curley Weaver and Buddy Moss, formed this group in 1930 and recorded a few tunes. Unfortunately, these were the last songs that Bob ever recorded.
This is their version of Blind Blake‘s “Diddie Wa Diddie”
Here is Ry Cooder‘s version.
This is a take by Leon Redbone.
The next song to listen is a standard called “She Looks So Good”. You will recognize many songs woven into the fabric of this one.
She Looks So Good
One final tune.
“She’s Coming Back Some Cold Rainy”
This is a version by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. This version is, in a word, sweet. I want to listen this song on repeat for about a week.
