"Devil Comes Back to Georgia" feat. Mark O'Connor with Daniels, Cash, Tritt and Marty Stuart

Mark O'Connor Grammy nominated Heroes recording featuring 14 of his violin and fiddle playing heroes was released in 1992. The sequel to the original "Devil Comes Back to Georgia" was done here with an all star cast. Mark O'Connor plays Johnny's fiddle solo and Marty Stuart is the voice of Johnny.

Charlie Daniels plays the Devil's fiddle solo and Travis Tritt is the voice of the Devil. Johnny Cash is the narrator who recalls this epic duel, "The Devil Comes Back to Georgia".

REVIEW: "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" has long been a crowd pleaser since Charlie Daniels first unleashed it on the world 25 years ago. The musical folktale of the boy fiddler, Johnny, and his encounter with the Devil is a satisfying one because our hero, Johnny, whips the Devil in a fiddling contest, saving his soul and gaining a golden fiddle. Mark approached Charlie Daniels about doing a "sequel" and Charlie agreed, stipulating only that the Devil must lose again. Johnny Cash, the man in black himself, performs the "narration" of the sequel while Marty Stuart and Travis Tritt perform the parts of Johnny and The Devil, and when Mark plays the final fiddle showdown it's as if Paganini has risen from the grave to steal his soul from the Devil one more time. If you're a betting man or woman, and you have a choice in a fiddle contest between Charlie Daniels, The Devil, and Mark O'Connor - put all your money on Mark O'Connor." -Mark J. Fowler

Timely post, as Charlie Daniels just passed into that realm where devils and angels have no bodies or fiddles or long strips of asphalt highway. That line about "There must be one helluva band up there" is heart warming in a cute way, but let's face it, unrealistic.  Johnny Cash, Charlie Daniels, Porter Wagoner, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, all their fans who were musicians but didn't have the chops, Sun Ra, Billie Holiday, Bach, .... who would organize these bands within the band? And who will keep James Brown from jumping on their case every time he hears a false note?
