Fred E. D’Albert


Put On Your Old Plaid ShawlIn 1906, Fred D’Albert and Fred Godfrey wrote Mary, Queen Of Scots for Vesta Victoria. They teamed up again in 1909 for several more songs: Have You Met A Girl Named Mary?; I Wish That I Knew Your Little Sister; I’m Not A Baby Any More; Put On Your Old Plaid Shawl; She’s A Girl Up North; There’s A Girl In Berlin (with J.C. Moore); and When You’ve Got A Lady Near You. That same year, they also wrote three songs for Australian Music Hall star and early recording pioneer Billy Williams, “The Man In the Velvet Suit”: Come Into The Garden, John (with Williams); In The Land Where The Women Wear The Trousers (with Williams); and Oh! Oh! Oh! (A Tale Of Paris). In 1910, Godfrey and D’Albert wrote In The Land Where The Heather Grows and Put On Your Kilt, Sandy.
