I took this photo at Neck Point Park in Nanaimo, British Columbia..
This song 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.
In the mid 1970s, Dickey Lee recorded "9,999,999 Tears", and it became a country and pop hit in 1976, and in 1977, Lee repeated this with another Bailey tune, "Peanut Butter," which also went into the charts. As his songwriting talents became known, Bailey signed with RCA Records and in 1978 began releasing singles of his own songs. His first hit as a singer-songwriter, "What Time Do You Have To Be Back In Heaven?", was on the charts for over four months. Bailey charted a total of seven No. 1 singles on Billboard's "Country" charts and another eight Top 10 in the late 1970s- early 1980s. His sound combines R&B influences with country; his version of Wilson Pickett's "In the Midnight Hour" was a country hit. His last country No. 1 hit was with "She Left Love All Over Me" in 1982.
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..
I added 3 acoustic instrument tracks (Banjo, Guitar, Bass) and a voice track to this one and I changed it a bit to suit my way of doing things...
