BLUES: Blues Vocals, BLUES: Rhythm & Blues
My big break came in 1969 when I met today's "Queen of the Blues", Ms. Denise LaSalle. Denise and her former husband, Bill Jones, owned Crajon Records. They signed me to their label, changing my name from "Chicago Willie" to "Bill Coday."
The first record for Crajon was "I Get High on Your Love" followed by "Sixty Minute Teaser." They did fairly well, but it was the next record that would launch my career in the R&B field. "Get Your Lies Straight" ,written and produced by Denise LaSalle, was a huge hit and soared to the top of the R&B charts. This record was recorded at the famed Hi Studios in Memphis, Tennessee with the legendary Willie Mitchell arranging the music. This record established me as an up and coming blues singer and I've been a dynamic showbiz show-stopper ever since.
Crajon Records promoted "Get Your Lies Straight" in any markets, then leased the master to Fantasy/Galaxy Records in Berkeley, California so the record could be promoted more heavily. I continued to record for Galaxy, releasing "When You Find a Fool, Bump His Head" in 1970, and "Let Me Be Your Handyman" in 1971. Although these were decent sellers, they didn't get the push they deserved. I was discouraged with Galaxy. In 1973,Denise helped me to get signed with Epic Records where they released "I'm Back To Collect." The song hit the charts with a bullet. I later signed with Ecko records and released 6 albums. In April of 2005, I launched my independent record label, B&J Records. The first release entitled "Jump Start," is hot and is sure to steadily climb the Blues charts across the nation.
