a message to all charles ernest moody and georgia yellowhammers fans:my friend dr. bob l.i have nominated the georgia yellow hammers to the georgia music hall of fame. huge numbers of nominations are made each year so the competition is great for the 4 slots chosen each year. we are in the process of determining our next moves, setting up meetings with some officials who may point us in the right direction. for now, if you have stories,anecdotes, specific thoughts on their uniquesness or special talents and abilities, please blog back. i would greatly appreciate it. by the way i am from calhoun, ga., the home of the hammers. mr. moody's gravesite is less than a thousand feet from my home. somehow, i feel a strong bond with him as listen to his 2 great gospel standards. "drifting and "kneel", more close in me than mr. moodys gravesite.mike j

i have recently posted a message informing everyone that dr. bob l. and i have nominated charles moody and the georgia yellow hammers to the georgia music hall of fame.thougts, ideas, about them would be helpful dr. l and i have done orginal research, speaking to various relatives and friends of the hammers.
i want to share one story that shows the depth of these folks, in this instance mr moody(c.e.). as most of you know the hammers and the baxter brothers(the black group)were fans of each other and playing partners at times. on the fatefull recording together in 1927 they made history. either they were the first or among the first black-white groups to record together(old-timey groups)and in a special way were sharing their masterful talents a new path was forged.
on our interview with mr. moody's son he related the folowing story. in the late 50's, 60's various print publications were sending their journalist to calhoun, ga to uncover more understanding of the group, especially mr moody. moody was puzzled that people from the atlanta journal-constitution would have any interest in him and was entirely unassuming thru-out the whole process. but here is what the newspapers never knew or realized. a few days after some interview son moody went to the modest home of mr moody(a highly frequent thing), talked about the interviews and decided to put some of the lp music on to reminish of the "glory days". son moody put on the joint baxters-hammers recording and mr moody quietly talked of the historic day and then tears drained from him as he said to son moody, "we did the right thing". young moody said," dad you knew what you were doing" and the answer came," yes son i think so".to me this is powerful, straight from the deep heart of a profundly good and christian man. mike j   ( there are other such stories)

Hi, Mike-
Please be aware that we generally allow information to be posted only once. You posted the information on Charles E. Moody & the Georgia Yellow Hammers at least four times, in four different threads. We have consolidated them all into this thread to demonstrate the redundancy. If you wish to call the original message to mind again, post some new information to this thread. Don't go posting the same message over and over again.
Thanks.
