Everytime You See Her She’s Got A New Lie To Tell

Buddy Moss is almost always forgotten when talk about Piedmont blues, as they they talk about Fuller, McTell, Davis and maybe Blake. Moss was important because he is sort of the missing generation of Piedmont blues, bridging McTell and Blake. I hear a lot of Moss in the early Blind Boy Fuller recordings, but Curley Weaver and Blind Willie Mctell seem to take a lot of their style from Moss, more so than anyone else. And it makes sense as Moss was older than both Weaver and McTell and they would play joints around Atlanta. This recording is Moss solo, which is how I prefer him, he is a great guitar player with an even better voice.

Absolutely incorrect: Buddy Moss was
much younger than both McTell and Weaver. Moss was about 16 years old when he made his first recordings as
a harmonica accompanist in 1930.
