Always thought Leon "Pappy" Self authored Orange Blossom Special.
Saw him perform it one night at a Houston barbeque joint over on Kirby
Here's a long story that explores the various "origins" of the tune:
Dave in Houston
Loudest band I ever heard (sitting directly in front of the speakers
in the front row at the old Jonathan Swift's in Harvard Square.)
Wow did he have that fiddle cranked!
Just to tie two completely unrelated and off-topic threads together,
I was listening to Taj Mahal's version of "Six Days on the Road"
yesterday in my car...

I like Mark O'Conner's version. Of course I'm a huge, biased Mark
For a real treat, check out Mark O'Conner's "Heroes" album, featuring
Clements, Jean Luc Ponty, Kenny Baker, Charlie Daniels, Johnny Gimble,
Stephane Grappelli, Pinchas Zuckerman, Byron Berline, Buddy Spicher,
Doug Kershaw, and others. He duets with each of them, and in my
opinion, leaves no doubt as to who's the best fiddler ever.
