The Poppy Family - 1969 - Which Way You Goin Billy?
The Poppy Family was a late 1960s and early 1970s Canadian pop music group, based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Singer/songwriter Terry Jacks met eighteen year old Susan Pesklevits in the late 1960s, and together they formed a band called "The Powerline", which was soon renamed "Winkin' Blinkin' & Nob". At Pesklevits' insistence, the name was eventually changed to "The Poppy Family". The name was chosen when Terry Jacks picked the word Poppy at random from a dictionary. The two were married at approximately the same time that The Poppy Family recorded their first album, and Pesklevits was henceforth known as Susan Jacks. Which Way You Goin' Billy?, released in 1969, was the first album The Poppy Family. They scored their biggest hit with title track "Which Way You Goin' Billy?". The album has yet to be released on modern formats and remains a rare vinyl. The Poppy Family disbanded in 1973. 01 - That's Where I Went Wrong 02 - Free From The City 03 - Beyond The Clouds 04 - A Good Thing Lost 05 - You Took My Moonlight Away 06 - There's No Blood In Bone 07 - Happy Island 08 - Which Way You Goin' Billy 09 - Shadows On My Wall 10 - What Can The Matter Be 11 - For Running Wild 12 - Of Cities And Escapes LINK
