I took this photo in the Slocan Lake area, West Kootenay Region of British Columbia..
This is my rendition of a song that was written and performed by Rasie Michael Bailey, an American country music artist, known professionally as Razzy Bailey. Bailey was raised on a farm in La Fayette, Alabama. Bailey got his first experience of musical performance as a member of his high school's string band. After graduation, he married and had children immediately, and had little time to pursue his career, but he spent many years playing occasional gigs at honky-tonks in Georgia and Alabama and developing his songwriting.
In 1966, Bailey took his material to Bill Lowery at Atlantic Records, who arranged for him to record "9,999,999 Tears" backed by a studio band featuring Billy Joe Royal, Joe South, and Freddy Weller. The song failed to hit the charts at that time, but Bailey was encouraged, forming the pop trio Daily Bread which released a pair of albums on small labels. In 1974, Bailey recorded the album I Hate Hate simply as "Razzy." It sold over half a million copies before being picked up by MGM Records. Bailey has had three double sided number 1's in succession on the Country charts, a feat never accomplished by any other artist. Here is a photo of Razzy Bailey..
