    Richard Isaac Banks changed his name to Billy Williams and became the most recorded popular entertainer of his and indeed of all time. Billed as 'The Man In The velvet Suit', his recordings continued to sell in their thousands long after his early death in 1915. Born in Melbourne, Williams tried a number of jobs before embarking on an entertainment career which led him to come to England in 1899. He became a popular entertainer in the music halls singing, what were known as, chorus-songs.
