Big Bad Bill Is Sweet William Now

I've been humming and hawing about posting a Public Domain song for a while. However finally I decided to do so - primarily for a change from posting originals. Also I like hearing covers from my favourite artists - it's a guide to their development and what new ideas they can "bring to the table". Fundamentally - this is one of my all time favourite songs.


The original song was written by Milton Ager (music)and lyrics by Jack Yellen in 1924. This song is now in the Public Domain.

My 2021 version features:

Vocals, arrangement and production - Nigel Spiers
Bass - Byron House
Piano - Kevin McKendree
Drums - Brian Fullen
Guitar - Steve Hinson
Trumpet - Don Clark

Certainly very TRADitional.

Great orchestra, ideal style and top delivery.

You made that sound like a lot of fun.

Great tune.
First heard it off Ry Cooder's "Jazz" album a few decades ago.
There's a lot of similar music on that record.
Nice to hear it again.

Wonderful version, Nigel. Sounds like cigars and glasses clinking --in a good way. Trumpet is excellent.

Great vocal, very croony. Band is tight and sounding good. Terrific work!
