  • Great song, yes. Charlie Daniels Band did a concert here in Adelaide alongside Little River Band many years ago, which was apparently fantastic.

  • A lot of the country-rock genre of the mid-70s was tilted heavily on the country side, and the Charlie Daniels Band was one of them (Marshall Tucker Band, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, etc). Long before 'Devil Went Down to Georgia' he was having hits being played on the rock radio stations my teenage self listened to here in the Seattle area. Although I generally detest "country" music, these bands combined country elements with the bass lines and back beat of rock-n-roll and were part of the country-rock genre initially defined by the likes of The Allman Brothers and The Eagles, which has actually morphed into mainstream country these days (which I still don't like, BTW :mrgreen: ). Kind of like a second coming of rockabilly from the 50s. One of his best mid-70s recordings which *wasn't* a hit was a cover of the bluegrass song 'Orange Blossom Special', which showed off some truly amazing fiddle-work and I'm surprised his fingers didn't catch on fire when he played it.

    I always heard his shows were pretty damn good, but by the time I had the money to attend one he'd wandered off into the country end of things. Bummer. RIP CDB.

    Good one. I always liked The Legend of Wooley Swamp.
