Which Way You Goin' Billy?, released in 1969, was the first album from Vancouver, British Columbia band The Poppy Family.

They scored their biggest hit with title track, "Which Way You Goin' Billy?", which went to #1 in both Canada and Ireland and #2 on both the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the Cash Box Top 100 in the US in mid 1970. The album has been reissued on CD with the second album included as bonus tracks, however the original vinyl remains rare and collectable.

The song "Of Cities and Escapes" was prominently sampled in the song "Madness" by Hip-Hop group Deltron 3030 on their self titled debut album.

"Shadows on My Wall" (1969) is featured on Folk Is Not a Four Letter Word and "Free From the City" (1969) on Daily Fingertracks.
