I am very sorry indeed to hear this news, I've known Bill since the Painter's Arms days in the 70's, through festivals and concerts and latterly with ABU and you could not wish to meet a nicer bloke. A lovely musician and man and a great songwriter - and I mean great.The last time I saw him was just after his 70th birthday, he was trying to relearn one of his songs for a WW1 themed charity event, he told me a very funny joke then quipped how he had no problem recalling other people's songs but struggled with his own.
Very best wishes indeed,
Gilly

We're very sorry to report the death last night of the great Bill Caddick, singer and writer of "John o Dreams", "Unicorns", "Waiting For The Lark" and many other wonderful songs. He was 74.

He had been hospitalised for some months, but his wife Katherine tells us that Bill died very peacefully last night, at home in his own bed, where he wanted to be, and with his family around him.

Subject: RE: Bill Caddick is not well
From: Vic Smith
Date: 20 Nov 18 - 06:19 AM

I would like to pay my tribute to Bill whose death was announced yesterday. Bill had been active on the folk scene for decades and we first booked him back in the 1960s. He was deservedly popular as a solo performer and became one of the scene's most respected songwriters with a unique recognisable style of writing and performing., He was the lead singer in the hugely popular band 'Home Service' for a number of years and through them became involved with the National Theatre as musician, singer and writer, contributing to and appearing in several plays which included "Don Quixote", and "The Mysteries".
One of the things that made him such a popular figure was the warmth of his personality and his enthusiasm for the performances of others. Sometimes, I thought that Bill was unaware of his impact and the status that he has achieved. He was always the same friendly-faced person that I had met in his early days in folk clubs.
About two years ago, I followed up my junior school aged grandaughter's obsession with Unicorns by playing a recording of Chris Foster's recording of that song. She was transfixed. I had to make a copy of of it for her. She provided a photo of a unicorn on fairly stiff card and I typed the words to go on the other side. This was because she wanted to sing it at a school assembly. I thought that I would tell Bill about this when I saw him again.
Sadly, I never did.

I proudly stated that I had gained his Sunny Memories LP on a folk club raffle for 50 pence some 20 years before saving me buying it.

Many years ago in Norfolk, at a memorial concert for Alex Atterson, some friends and I were standing in a corner of the bar, improvising harmonies to John o' Dreams. Up comes this bloke I didn't know, and starts joining in. Cracking voice, I thought. Come the end of the song he smiled and said 'Thank you... I enjoyed that!'10 minutes later I found out that it was Bill himself. A true gentleman, and one who wore his talent lightly.

Not unexpected but that doesn't soften the blow..I was in floods of tears for quite a while yesterday,   .
We were born about 5 miles apart in the same year. We have been friends since the Pipe Hall FC in Bilston in the 60s. He was a part of the Wolverhampton folk scene when he lived in Parkdale with his first wife June and son Christie, He was rwegularly touring clubs all round the country
- He became`a full time member of Magic Lantern for several years - I was a part-time member as Ramo Samee the fire eater (no PC in those days!) Several times I drove him to gigs around the country which was always a real pleasure. By far my favourite writer - and such variety of songs and styles! - Edwardian for Sunny Memories, Circus for 'A Duck on his Head' C&W for 'My good ol' Cherokee' and 'One hand on the radio, One on the Wheel' 'Eights and Aces'and so on.and of course the sublime John O' Dreams'...Unicorns' and the fabulous 'Cloud Factory'   I'll miss you old buddy

Despite my mobility problems and my advancing years, I went to see Bill and chatted to him at the closing night of the Halfpenny Folk Club in the hamlet of Oldwalls, Gower; he was a lovely man, an inspiring and wonderful songsmith and an entrancing personality. Many years ago, I heard him singing the stark and beautiful 'Unicorns', which he had just devised; the song made quite an impact on me. I invited Bill a few times when I was co-founder of Llantrisant Folk Club, and he always came up trumps and really delighted and moved the audience with songs like his 12-minute classic 'The Writing Of Tipperary', 'I'm In Love With A Gibson Girl', 'Poor Pig', 'She Moves Among Men', 'Waiting For The Lark', 'Oller Boller', 'Donkey Jack Donkey', the ingenious 'Cloud Factory' and the utterly memorable 'John O' Dreams'. Farewell, my old friend.

A great loss - I've been reminding myself of what a gifted and sensitive writer he was by playing 'The Wild West Show' album. He'd appeared in the '70s at The Bothy in Southport, as a soloist, as part of Magic Lantern and finally with Pete Bond and Tim Laycock doing the 'Duck On His Head' show on a blisteringly hot night in July 1979. After that his work at the National Theatre and with The Home Service kept him busy and we lost touch - my fault not his.
Sad news indeed and condolences to his family and to those who knew him far better than I.

I know that some of Bill's finest albums ended up in the Harrogate Black Hole, but what happened to his first, Rough Music that was on the South Hill Park label SHP102? The only other recording I can trace of them is one by the Threadbare Consort SHP103.
Presumably Bill tried to get it released in CD form but failed (?). Did the master tapes got lost?
