Video von Bill Browning - The Echo Valley Boys - Hillbilly Rock (7inch EP, 45rpm, EP, PS, TC) first pressing

(Rollercoaster Records) 4 tracks - triangle centre - mastered at CTS, Wembley with 'B.J. at the control' written in dead wax
 -
Wash Machine Boogie by the Echo Valley Boys was the Island Record Company's first release in April 1957. Like many of the more obscure 50's recordings now regarded as rockabilly classics by boppers and collectors alike the release has been as extensively bootlegged as it has been 'covered' by present-day rockabilly bands.

Little is known of the Echo Valley Boys, but Bill Browning appears to have been more than just the lead vocalist, having arranged, produced and written most of the band's material. Bill was born on May 16th 1931 in Wayne County, West Virginia, where he became interested in music at the age of fourteen. At sixteen he formed his first band, the Kanawha Valley Boys, and broadcast regularly over WTIP in Charleston, West Virginia until 1950 when he and members of his band were drafted into the services.

In August 1955 Bill moved to Cleveland, Ohio, and formed the Echo Valley Boys, who were soon appearing every Saturday night on the Circle Theatre Jamboree. In the spring of 1957 Bill submitted some of his material to Frank J. Videmsek, president of the Island Record Company, and his first recording - Wash machine boogie and Ramblin' man was soon on the presses. This was followed by Born with the blues, Breaking hearts, Sinful woman and Hula rock. Although Bill remained actively involved in songwriting and recording, national success eluded him and he died in January 1978, a victim of cancer.

Artist description "Browning, Bill"

Bill Browning

Bill Browning (Echo Valley Boys)

1931 - 1978

 

'Wash Machine Boogie' by the Echo Valley Boys was the Island Record Company's first release in April 1957. Like many of the more obscure 50s recordings now regarded as rockabilly classics by boppers and collectors alike, that release has been as extensively bootlegged as it has been 'covered' by rockabilly bands from the 70s to the present day.

The Echo Valley Boys were Bill Browning, Merl Hoaf, Jackie Wooten, Art Fulks, Roy Barker and Marshall Looney. Browning was the catalyst and his songs and arrangements dominate the ten or so releases on Island Records credited to him and the band. Bill was born Wilmer L. Browning on May 16th 1931 in Wayne County, West Virginia. He took up the guitar at the age of fourteen and formed a band, the Kanawha Valley Boys in 1947. Until they were drafted into the services in 1950, the band broadcast their own show over WTIP in Charleston, West Virginia, and got a reputation in the area for good up-tempo hillbilly music in dance halls and on picnics.

In August 1955, Bill moved to Cleveland, Ohio and formed the Echo Valley Boys, who soon had a regular Saturday night spot on the locally broadcast Circle Theater Jamboree. In early 1957, Bill sent a recording to Frank J Videmsek of Island Records and they began a long relationship. His first single, 'Wash Machine Boogie' coupled with 'Ramblin' Man' was soon on the presses, and became a hot request on local radio.

Frank Videmsek was convinced he had a star on his hands and persevered with Bill for the next three years. Despite disc sales being less than exciting, the Echo Valley Boys gained quite a name for themselves, appearing on WWVA's Jamboree, broadcast from Wheeling, West Virginia where WWVA dj and fellow rockabilly performer Hardrock Gunter remembers spinning Browning's recordings regularly.

After leaving Island, Bill Browning appeared on Starday and other labels and he continued to record and write songs until his death in January 1978.
