This is the second of six volumes featuring the complete recorded works of The Skillet Lickers. The 6 volume set covers some of the finest, and some of the rarest, hillbilly and string band recordings of what is often called the golden age of old-time music. The Skillet Lickers were also known for their sketches, some of which are included in Volume 2. "A Fiddlers' Convention in Georgia" was the first of several such descriptive novelties by Georgian musicians, the gang produces a varied menu of band music and solo specialities, with a greased pig chase for a bonus. "Hog Killing Day" continues the pig theme with Gid Tanner providing the commentary. "Possum Hunt On Stump House Mountain" involves the whole group to provide an impressive track complete with hunting horns, barking hounds and vigorous fiddle-band music. This volume also includes some wonderful fiddling on tracks such as "Cotton Eyed Joe", "Prettiest Little Girl In the County" and "Sal Let Me Chaw Your Rosin." Includes informative booklet notes by Tony Russell with bibliography and full discographical details.
