Teacher Teach Me

 Billy J

Teacher Teach Me
B. Jones, dessa Music (BMI)

dessa record co. 
Produced by Bill Jones

Rte 1, Box 280
Odessa, Texas
(915) 563-1679

The flip side is "After This Next Fight"  listed by the Vietnam Was Song Project

Garage rock, soldier's perspective, religion
Please god help me I'm overseas surrounded by the enemy
Back home my dad is a drunk - help my mum, that's all I ask

Billy J is Bill Jones I guess. This 1970 release was followed by two other records on the same label also produced by Bill Jones, one by Tennia Wade and the other by Lonnie Bray in 1971.

There were further releases on Dessa, years later, when Bill Jones was associated in Nashville with Royce Clark, a freelance producer who worked for Shelby Singleton. By then the label, located in Tennessee, is listed separately by 45cat.      A Lubbock native, Royce Clark, had records on the Amarillo-based Veeda Records in the early sixties before moving to Nashville in 1966.
