After a four year involvement with Sun Records, Billy Riley decided to quit again. Jack Clement and Bill Justis had been dismissed in early 1959. Both started their own labels. Riley did some work for Justis, cutting an instrumental record pseudonymous for Jaro/Top Rank under the name "Spitfires". By this point he had reunited with Roland Janes and they held down a steady gig at the Starlight Club in Memphis. It was there that they came up with the idea for Rita Records.

"When Sam was finishing the new studio on Madison Avenue", recalled Roland Janes to Colin Escott, "Riley and I went to him and asked him whether we could maintain the old studio, record there with the product going to Sun. Sam was pretty busy at the time and we never actually resolved the question. We just drifted into doing our own thing".

"Rita Records was a co-op deal. Bill and I naturally played on everything which eliminated having to pay a couple of musicians and we used our old buddies. James M. Van Eaton and Martin Willis. Jimmy Wilson had left town by this point so we used Tommy Bennett and Larry Mohoberac on piano. We came up with a partner who had a little money, Ira Lynn Vaughn. He was an accountant and the label was named after his daughter Rita".

"Mr. Vaughn took care of the paperwork. Bill and I took care of production and getting records to the distributors. Riley was a tremendous salesman. He could go in and talk someone into something - and probably talk them out of it before he left!. He was much better than me as a salesman but I probably had a better business head. Our business address was Mr. Vaughn's office but we worked out of our homes".

END 1959

When Sun's promotion assistent Barbara Barnes returned to Memphis from Chicago for visit friends, she tried to convince Billy Riley to develop a single act modeled after Josh White. ''Billy was really good looking, and when he wasn't shouting as he did on his rock records, he had a passable voice. He played guitar well, and I thought the time was right for some blues and folk music'', recalled Barbara. ''I knew he'd grown up alongside black workers in the cotton fields of Arkansas and that he knew all kind of blues songs. I saw him as a Josh White, just a little lighter with his olive complexion and glossy black hair. 'Why don't you see if you can get a solo booking at the Rivermont? You could wear a black turtleneck and pants and get close to your audience. You could really sing to them, instead of shouting and jumping around. The ladies will love you if you'll romance them a little. You could try out some material that way and find some blues to record'', Barbara says.

''Yeah'', Billy crooned. ''Sex-ville''. Barbara continued, ''No one at Sun was thinking of selling folk-based records, but I thought it could be done. Billy listened to me thoughtfully, his eyes lighting up, and I could see he was envisioning himself as a cabaret singer. This new musical identity would allow him to re-invent himself. He was always saying his name was unlucky, and if he could just find the right name, he was sure he'd be a star. With other labels later, he recorded as Darren Lee and Skip Wylie before finally settling on adding Lee to his name, thereby coming to be remembered as Billy Lee Riley'', says Barbara.

Billy didn't follow up her advice for a single act, but he did put his blues roots out there when he formed his own label, Rita Records, sometime later. Calling himself ''Lightnin' Leon'', he sounded like an authentic blues singer on a tune called ''Repossession Blues. The back side, all about the endless hours farm laborers spent in those times driving a mule down cotton furrows, was also authentic-sounded blues. He was a fine harmonica player and, as one whose family were the only white sharecroppers on a large Arkansas plantation, he came as close as a white man could come to playing the real Delta blues.

Surprisingly, neither Billy Riley nor Roland Janes recorded prolifically for Rita. "We were so involved with trying to record everyone else that we forgot about ourselves", said Janes. "I guess we wanted to be producers and moguls". Riley saw two releases on Rita.

"Dark Muddy Bottom" and "Reposession Blues" was released under the pseudonym of Lightnin' Leo. Its authentic down home flavor fooled many blues fans into thinking that Leon had emerged from the Delta around 1960, cut one record and returned to the cotton patch.

By the time "That's What I Want To Do" was released, Billy Riley had quit Rita Records, reportedly selling his share for $1000 just as Harold Dorman's "Mountain Of Love" was breaking. He promptly started Mojo Records and covered "That's What I Want To Do" for Mojo with Billy Garner handling the vocals.

POSTSCRIPT - All music recorded at the original Sun Studio, 706 Union Avenue, Memphis, which was closed the end of 1959. By this time, the classic period of Sun blues and country was over. However, Charlie Rich and Carl Mann, in particular, continued to make fine country flavoured records at Sun as did Jerry Lee Lewis. The recordings for Sun and Phillips International continued in a new studio at 639 Madison Avenue. Some blues, soul and gospel sessions were held. These included the rhythm and blues session by Frank Ballard in March 1962 for a Phillips International album, the Frank Frost sessions in April 1962 for a Phillips International and single, the rhythm and blues/soul recordings by the Climates in 1967, and Brother James Anderson's gospel session of May 1962 finally released on Sun in 1967.

Through the late 1960s, Sun produced occasional country sessions most notably the 1962 sessions by Eddie Bond and the 1966 sessions by Dane Stinit. To all intents and purposes, though, the true story of Sun country is contained within the years 1950 - 1959 covered in on this site.
