The Orange Blossom Playboys

Under Appreciated


The last song on the Kim Fowley album Under Ground Animal is the most chilling cautionary tale about the dangers of drug abuse that I have ever heard, “The Story of Susie” by Bill Woods; the chorus (the only part that is sung) goes:  “She wanted to be like everyone else / Now she’s all alone in a room by herself”.  Along with Buck OwensBill Woods with his band the Orange Blossom Playboys was a pioneer of the Bakersfield sounds in country music.
