His songs included social comment and pathos along with the jokes & he would try his hand at anything, singing spirituals & playing impressive slide.

The booming 12-string guitar, wryly funny lyrics and sheer drive of Barbecue Bob endeared him to two generations of blues fans, his contemporary black record buying public and the later white audience of the Fifties and Sixties.
Some pre-war blues don't wear well being firmly fixed into a time, place and social structure that must be studied before the music can be fully understood. Such study will enrich an appreciation of Bob's work too - but it is not a basic requisite for enjoying this extrovert entertainer, all you really need is a sense of rhythm and a sense of humour. Not that he was light-weight in any way. His songs included social comment and pathos along with the jokes (good and bad) and he would try his hand at anything, singing spirituals, playing impressive slide, backing other singers, hamming up playlets with his brother Charlie and performing along with Curley Weaver and Buddy Moss as part of the Georgia Cotton Pickers.
