THERE'S NO HELL IN GEORGIA. AKA and see "Hell Broke Loose in Georgia (3)," "Hellbound for Alabama." American, Reel (cut or 2/4 time). USA, Arkansas. "There's no Hell in Georgia" was recorded by Luke Hignight's Ozark Strutters" in November, 1929 for Brunswick records (released on the Vocalion label in 1929). The band bears the name of harmonica and banjo player Luther Burton Hignight (sometimes Hignite, 1897-1940) whose name is properly spelled 'Hignight'. However, it appears as 'Highnight' on the record label and in a plethora of notices and publications thereafter and seems inexorably altered. He was also a member of Minton's Ozark String Band who recorded for OKeh Records in February, 1928. The Ozark Strutters consisted of Hignight (banjo and harmonica), Frank Gardner (fiddle), and Hubert Tucker (guitar).
