Back in the twenties there were quite some talented Blues musicians in the Georgia region. By 1926 there was this guy called Robert Hicks aka “Barbecue Bob” who had a big contribution to the Atlanta and Piedmont Blues style. With his Brother he set up a fantastic blues super group called the Georgia Cotton Pickers.
Georgia Cotton Pickers – “Diddle-Da-Diddle”
The first song that shows the sound of the Cotton Pickers perfectly is “Diddle-Da-Diddle”. I’m getting verry happy of the beautiful piedmont blues guitar, swinging harmonica and soul filled vocal parts.
