Bill & Will "goin' To The River" On Athens/checker

Recommended Posts

Several years ago I read a label discography for the Athens label and noticed that Bill & Will's pounding "Goin' To The River" was supposed to have had a local release on that label prior to being leased to Checker. Over the years I started to suspect that it was a misprint of some kind... until a copy on Athens suddenly turned up the other week. Feels kinda nice having them both side by side after such a long search. :lol::thumbsup: Not exactly soul, but a firm favourite of mine and apparently a play at some of the more r&b-firendly clubs.

But Sebastian , how the hell did it ever appear on that famous compilation of British white 60's RnB bands back in the 80's ????

:lol:

Yes, that one was really strange. Can't quite remember, but was it one of the "English Freakbeat" albums? What did the liner notes say? "Bill" is rumoured to be Billy Lee Riley... but not according to himself... :lol:
