Buddy Moss Discography
« on: August 07, 2007, 10:42:20 PM »
Aside from a pieces where he acts as a sideman for various other artists, do the three Document CDs coupled with the Atlanta Blues Singer compilation consist of the entire released discography of Buddy Moss?  I am aware that a revival LP was cut, but never released.

Hi Hank,
I believe there is a newly released CD of Buddy from the '60s among the new releases of George Mitchell recordings on Fat Possum.  I've not heard it yet but I bet some other Weenies have, and I seem to remember from reviews that it is quite short, less than 30 minutes in running time.
All best,
Johnm

I don't think that got past the planning stage. Somewhere I have a cassette that Tony Martin of Revival sent me containing the handful of George Mitchell Moss recordings and other possibles to make up a compilation. Having typed this I've experienced deja vu so it's possible this topic has been raised before. Be that as it may, in the meantime why not marvel at Stefan Wirz's Moss discography. http://www.wirz.de/music/mossfrm.htm

There is indeed a Fat Possum CD of Buddy Moss.  Here's the description from Roots & Rhythm:

BUDDY MOSS     Fat Possum 1052     The George Mitchell Collection     ● CD $9.98
10 tracks, 22 mins, recommended
Buddy Moss was one of the giants of pre-war Piedmont blues. He was rediscovered in the early 60s but unlike many of his contemporaries was not particularly interested in performing or recording again and only recorded a couple of times. These recordings from 1963 (possibly a demo for Delmark) find him, rather incongruously, playing electric guitar. He was obviously out of practice but still sounds pretty good on a selections of remakes of some of his pre-war sides plus other traditional sounding material along with a version of Lowell Fulson's Blues Shadows Falling. (FS)

I haven't heard this CD yet.  Too many Document CDs on sale lately!

I've been listening to & enjoying these. He could still play well in his early-mid sixties & there's some nice tunes. His voice is a bit worn at times but overall these are good recordings . . . & free!

The Digital Library of Appalachia recordings are excellent. Thanks Stefan. Thanks for your whole damn site while I'm at it!

Thank you, Stefan.  The above listed recordings are just wonderful.  Its a shame that more of his late career recordings haven't come to light when it is clear he had so much gas left in the tank.

I'm late to the party having just discovered this site and consequently the Berea College recordings of Buddy Moss which are fantastic.

For Buddy Moss fans, Wolfgang's Vault recently added two of his sets at the 1969 Newport Folk Festival one of which he is backed by Brownie McGee on 2nd guitar.

There's a wealth of other great music at the Vault site, especially Newport Folk Festival and Ash Grove recordings.

DCBlack - cool thanks for the tip. Also, when you're on Berea's site, they also now have video footage of Buddy Moss available.

Re: this new audio, it's great stuff. One track has Buddy playing harmonica. Another track has Buddy doing a song I hadn't heard before.  It sounds like Brownie backs him on both sets.
