Our Little Kiddie Sings The Best Song Of All



Fred Godfrey & Billy Williams — London: Frank Howard, 1914.

In this one, Billy Williams says you can keep Melba, Caruso, Tetrazzini — and Harry Champion, too! He’d rather hear his little kiddie sing.

Favorite 729-BHMV-Victor 120713-BZonophone T1392-B



Billy Williams recorded this delightful, fast-paced song twice: 1 May 1914 for Zonophone, and, in the last recording session of his life, in early June 1914 for Favorite. Reissues appeared on several other labels. The Zonophone release shown above is from 1933 — still selling after nearly two decades.1
