Georgia Fife and Drum

Fat Possum
33 1/3 rpm 7" EP

The Georgia Fife and Drum band played rousing, good time music. This band tends to favor an earthier drum sound than the firecracker snare beats heard in Mississippi f&d groups such as the Como Drum Band. Every Time I Come Around shares lyrics with You Gotta Quit Kickin' My Dog Around, a tune popularized by fellow Georgians Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers. Also comes with buck dancing!
