A Big Bag Of Songs
Pssst!...What do Johnny Cash and The Jefferson Airplane have in common?...
Billy Edd Wheeler is revered as one of the greatest songwriters of the 20th Century, the author of unforgettable classics like Jackson (recorded by Johnny Cash/June Carter and Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood), Blistered (Johnny Cash), High Flying Bird (Jefferson Airplane, Richie Havens and Judy Henske), After Taxes (Lonnie Donegan) and The Reverend Mr. Black (The Kingston Trio) amongst many others. Rare and strikingly accomplished, his 1960s recordings are a revelation - country/folk/rock hybrids as unique as they are affecting, humourous as they are heartfelt. Mentored by the legendary Leiber and Stoller, Billy Edd became a songwriting powerhouse.
