Album Notes
This version of Devil Went Down to Georgia started out as a karaoke performance. I would sing Devil on karaoke night often. The song itself has a number of instrumental breaks; these breaks would leave me more or less idle. Enough of this would have me writing additional lyrics, to fill the time. These lyrics, I believe, embellish the story told by the song, but without changing its meaning. Audiences have generally enjoyed the extra words; the only person who ever expressed a negative opinion about them to me retracted this opinion after awhile, approving of my having worked the word 'succubus' into those lyrics; the relevant passage takes place during the band of demons instrumental break, and goes as follows.

Baphomet the sabbath goat playing brass guitar with fleshy strings from
Souls of the damned and he plays them with red hot fingers of coal to make them scream!
Beelzebub, a duke of Hell, the Lord of the Flies,
Playing that bottom on anguished thumping broken hearts for the Prince of Lies. A
Fire elemental, banging on bleached cracked skulls with points of flame in their eyes. An
Incubus and a succubus playing on each other, make the temperature rise. The
Devil himself by all of his names, Satan, Old Scratch, the Deuce, the Dickens,
Lucifer the Morning Star, Thulcandra, Mr. Applegate, Meph-
isto made that fiddle scream and caused some worried looks among the
Bystanders as he finished up playing looking smug.

The recording itself was made at Wally Cleaver Recording in Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA, on my own dime, with myself on lead and background vocals, Tim Handy on electric guitar, Kevin Handy on bass, Hillary Hamburg on keyboard, Aaron Malone on the fiddle, and Jeff Colbert on drums and working the studio.
