Sleepy Hollow is an album by the Siegel–Schwall Band. Their second album on the Wooden Nickel Records label, and their sixth album overall, it was recorded at Paragon Recording Studios in Chicago. It was released on vinyl in 1972. It was re-released as a CD by Wounded Bird Records in 1999. Billboard wrote, "Though blues-fed, the elements involving the music of the Siegel–Schwall band are decidedly rock; the sound is exciting.

The limited liner notes indicated Sleepy Hollow was a trio featuring the talents of singer/guitarist Richard Billay, bass player Richie Bremen and drummer Joe Zucca. With Billay responsible for all nine tracks, material like 'One Time' and 'Lay It On the Line' did have a late-inning Beatles flavor, though to my ears a better overall comparison would be Badfinger ('Take Me Back'), Emmit Rhodes ('Love Minus You'), or perhaps even a mid-1970s Lennon solo album. Tiger Lily somehow obtained the "Sleepy Hollow" tapes, reissuing the album under the band name Billay. Tiger Lily catalog number TL 14033. Bremen is apparently still active in entertainment field, having co-written music for the play DeeDee & Danny. There's also a Richie Bremen who was part of Lionel Richie's touring band.

Slapping an album with a Beatles comparison is usually the equivalent of an artistic and commercial kiss of death. Luckily, this was one of those rare cases where the comparison actually had some basis. Recorded at Philadelphia International's Philly-based Sigma Studios, 1972's "Sleepy Hollow" was co-produced by John Madara and the late Tom Sellers (of Assembled Multitude fame). The limited liner notes indicated Sleepy Hollow was a trio featuring the talents of singer/guitarist Richard Billay, bass player Richie Bremen and drummer Joe Zucca. With Billay responsible for all nine tracks, material like 'One Time' and 'Lay It On the Line' did have a late-inning Beatles flavor, though to my ears a better overall comparison would be Badfinger ('Take Me Back'), Emmit Rhodes ('Love Minus You'), or perhaps even a mid-1970s Lennon solo album ('Lady'). The trio's sound wasn't particularly original, but Billay had an impressive chameleon-like voice that managed to recall both Lennon's tougher sound ('Sincerely Yours' would not have been out of place on "Walls and Bridges") and McCartney's more pop-oriented material ('One Time' complete with great backing vocals). Artistically this may not have been a major statement, but made for one fun album and was simply miles ahead of most of the Beatlesque competition. - An engaging mid-tempo rocker, 'Sincerely Yours' sported an early solo John Lennon sound. Say what you will about the album's lack of originality, but on this one Billay nailed Lennon right down to his take-no-prisoners snarling delivery. rating: **** stars - The up-tempo ' One Time' sounded like something pulled off an early Badfinger album. Extremely commercial and radio ready, if would have made a nice single. rating: *** stars - Another radio friendly effort, the ballad ' Take Me Back' sounded like Badfinger channeling Paul McCartney. Billay even managed to mimic the Badfinger harmony vocals and Pete Ham's instantly recognizable slide guitar sound. rating: **** stars - Kicked along by a nice slide guitar, ' Talking Out of Turn' was a straightforward rocker that momentarily managed to breakaway from the Beatles/Badfinger influences. One of my favorite performances. rating: *** stars - Another pretty ballad, ' Lay It On the Line' showcased Billay's best McCartney impression. If you like McCartney, you'll like this one. If you think he's shallow and saccharine, then stay away. rating: *** stars - 'Love Minus You' started out side two with an Emmit Rhodes-does-McCartney pop number. The results were extremely catchy, but likely to put some folks into a diabetic coma. Bremen turned in some great bass work on this one. rating: *** stars - The first real disappointment, ' Lady' was a pretty, but instantly forgettable ballad. Imagine something lifted off of an early Eric Carmen solo album ...   rating: ** stars - Complete with punchy horns the rocker ' Roller Coaster Man' sounded like an early Raspberries track with a Beach Boys segment thrown in the middle. Those comparisons where meant as compliments. rating: *** stars - 'Hades' ended the album with another Lennon-esque ballad. Heavily orchestrated (courtesy of Tom Sellers), this one was apparently meant to be the album's big statement. Complete with stark piano, echo treated vocals (which served to underscore the comparison to Lennon's voice), Christmas bells and a big backing chorus, the results were a little over-the-top for me, but so what ... rating: *** stars Elsewhere Family pulled a single from the album: - 1972's 'Hades' b/w 'Sincerely Yours' (Family catalog number 0916). All told one of the better Beatlesque releases I've heard. I'd love to know what happened to front man Billay. There's a 1976 promo single on ATCO credited to Rich Billay 'Take Me Back' (stereo) b/w 'Take Me Back' (mono) (ATCO catalog number 45-7055), but I've never heard it and don't know if it's the same guy. "Sleepy Hollow" track listing: (side 1) 1.) Sincerely Yours (Richard Billay) - 3:01 2.) One Time (Richard Billay) - 2:05 3.) Take Me Back (Richard Billay) - 3:53 4.) Talking Out of Turn (Richard Billay) - 2:48 5.) Lay It On the Line (Richard Billay) - 2:43 (side 2) 1.) Love Minus You (Richard Billay) - 2:30 2.) Lady (Richard Billay) - 2:40 3.) Roller Coaster Man (Richard Billay) - 2:58 4.) Hades (Richard Billay) - 6:16 The album's also interesting for a tie-in to Morris Levy's tax scam Tiger Lily label. Tiger Lily somehow obtained the "Sleepy Hollow" tapes, reissuing the album under the band name Billay. Tiger Lily catalog number TL 14033 Bremen is apparently still active in entertainment field, having co-written music for the play DeeDee & Danny. There's also a Richie Bremen who was part of Lionel Richie's touring band. And out of the blue I got an email providing a bit of information on Richard Billay. "Hi, I saw your review of Sleepy Hollow and I couldn't resist emailing. I can tell you Richard Billay's whereabouts. Rich has worked at Queens College in New York, doing video production, for nearly 30 years. I worked with him when I went to college there. He was writing and recording Christian music in the early '90s (none of it signed) but I don't know if he's still doing that. He used to talk about the Sleepy Hollow days with a bit of disgust - he said he didn't like the way the record company was promoting the band - trying to make a Beatles comparison. Well, he was a big Beatles fan! Go figure. ;) I think after that, he didn't want much to do with the music business."
