Chill Wills 2nd posting


Watch this:
http://www.texasarchive.org/library/index.php?title=Chill_Wills_Record_Promotion_with_Cactus_Pryor_%28c._1969%29

I just love at the end of the video the girls getting out of the car and taking chill by the hand.  Never pictured Chill having groupies.  Chill also incorrectly states that this is his first LP.  "Everybody's Cousin" certainly predates it.  Maybe he forgot he made the first one.

Hope to find the full LP someday.  Until then, here's one single.

Metromedia 146 (from the album "Hello Cousin")
Year: 1969?

Both Bob Dylan and Prince later wrote songs called "I Wanna Be Your Lover".  Who knew Diane Emond was so influential?

Promenade EP 55-16



These must have been packaged together in one picture sleeve when they were new.  I didn't buy them together in the same place though, so their condition differs.  I'd like to see the picture sleeve, if anyone has it they can share.
