Get Your Lie Straight - Bill Coday

Bill Coday (born May 10, 1942 in Coldwater, Mississippi – died June 7, 2008) was an American musician. As a young man he began singing in juke joints in and around Blytheville, Arkansas. Later, Coday traveled to Chicago, Illinois, and there one night he was "discovered" by Denise LaSalle. LaSalle signed Coday to her Crajon label, and introduced Coday to Willie Mitchell of Memphis, Tennessee. Mitchell's reputation in the soul and soul blues music industry includes producing such artists as Al Green and Ann Peebles. Mitchell agreed to work with Coday, and a result of this relationship, the team of Mitchell and Coday produced songs that included "Sixty Minute Teaser", "I Get High on Your Love", "You're Gonna Want Me", "I'm Back to Collect", and "Get Your Lies Straight". Coday signed with Ecko Records and recorded the CD Sneakin' Back, which included the songs "Her Love Is Good Enough to Put in Collard Greens", "I Can Move the Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Doctor Thrill Good". Coday's second CD with Ecko Records was titled Can't Get Enough, which included the songs "In the Room Next to the Room", and "Not a Word". On the third CD with Ecko Records, Put Me in the Mood, Coday recorded the song "We're Gonna Miss You Johnnie", which is a tribute song to Johnnie Taylor.He was felled by a massive stroke on June 7th, 2008
