Here's a classic performance of his "wrong side of the tracks" theme, "Down In The Boondocks."
Here's another performance on Shindig! and some great vocals on "I Knew You When," also written by Joe South. (When I didn't know any better, I use to think this was a Tommy James song. My apologies, Mr. Royal).
And can't forget about this tune with its barely disguised double-entendre lyrics about Mary Hill in "Cherry Hill Park."
Gone, but NOT forgotten! RIP Billy Joe Royal!
