Bill was born in Alabama and according to the note posted to DJ's below, was married and had five children. Like many southerners, he may well have headed north on the promise of better job opportunities. Musically, the A side is a weepy country ballad with that sad steel guitar sound throughout. There's a fiddle player in the background who takes a brief solo. The B side is a faster, fiddle and steel gtr led hillbilly song. Bill sounds like a real southerner when he sings, despite the label location of IL.  (MC)
