BILLY WILSON [2]. AKA - "Bill Wilson," "Old Bill Wilson." Old-Time, Breakdown. USA; Texas, Tennessee. The tune is related to the Texas fiddle favorite "Bull at the Wagon" and the West Virginia tune "Red Bird (2)." Texas fiddler Eck Robertson used parts of this tune in the beginning of his amalagmated tune named "Brilliancy" (his extended piece, "Brilliancy Medley" also later on includes "Billy Wilson (1)"). "Bill Wilson" is one of four sides recorded by 77 yr. old Texas/Tennessee fiddler Uncle Jimmy Thompson for Columbia (15118-D) in 1929. See note for "annotation:Billy Wilson (1)" for more.
