Billy Lee Riley was born on 5 October 1933, in Pocahontas, Arizona. In 1971, he was signed to the new Entrance label by Chips Moman and recorded "I've Got A Thing About You Baby." Because of distribution problems, sales of the record did not live up to its promise. This, combined with personal difficulties, led Riley to sell all of his master tapes and quit the music business. Billy Lee Riley died on 2 August 2009.
Tony Joe White also recorded this number on 00-11-71 for use on his lp " The Train I'm On ", warner bros BS 2580 his first release was in 1972. I believe that Billy Lee Riley's version was recorded earlier. Elvis also recorded Tony Joe's "Polk Salad Annie" and "For Ol' Times Sake."
