The Poppy Family – Where Evil Grows (1971)

Scroll down to content

With Susan Jacks on vocals and Terry Jacks on rhythm guitar, along with musicians Craig McCaw (guitar/sitar) and Satwant Singh (tablas/drums), the Poppy Family recorded their first album, from which came their best known song “Which Way You Goin’ Billy?” (No. 1 in Canada and No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 charts). Their second and last album Poppy Seeds was recorded with studio musicians after Terry Jacks released Craig and Satwant from the group. Later hits included “That’s Where I Went Wrong” (#9, also #27 US), ‘Where Evil Grows’ (#6, also #45 US).
