KATY DID [2]. AKA and see "Ladies in the Ballroom (2)," "Take Me Back to Georgia," "Rattlesnake Bit the Baby." Old-Time, Bluegrass; Breakdown. USA, Va. Not Lowe Stokes' "Katy Did" but a version of his "Take Me Back to Georgia," recorded in 1929. Composition for the "Katy Did" named tune is credited to fiddler Sonny Miller (with Ted Lundy and the Southern Mountain Boys); however, it appears that the name came from the fact that the original Lowe Stokes/Mike Whitten 78 RPM recording that the tune was learned from had the labels reversed on each side [Gus Meade].

Additional notes

Recorded sources : - County 705, Sonny Miller - "Virginia Breakdown." OLD BLUE CD-707, "Ted Lundy & the Southern Mountain Boys" (tracks recorded between 1962 and 1971).
