Billy Williams
Let's have a song upon the Phonograph (CDR4)

Billy Williams (real name Richard Banks) knew how to advertise himself and as a publicity gimmick, travelled around London in an open car wearing a blue velvet suit. This was so associated with him that he became known as "The man in the Velvet Suit". His most famous song, When Father papered the Parlour, is still remembered today. He was a best seller with his discs, but also recorded on phonograph cylinders some of which feature on this CD. The CD contains 20 tracks, all transferred from original cylinders which were made between 1906 - 1913.

Track Listing

Let's have a song upon the phonograph
I'm the man that buried Flanagan
It's mine when you've done with it
Land where the Women wear the trousers
Poor old England
Why do you think I look so gay?
Save a little one for me
I must go home tonight
In the land where there are no girls
Don't go out with him tonight
When Father papered the Parlour
A tale of Paris
Soap and Water
All the silver from the silvery moon
We don't want more daylight
Little Willie's Woodbines
John go and put your trousers on
It's a wonder what little things lead to
As good as money in the bank
Parody - All coons look alike to me
