From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Billy Reid (1902-1975) was a United Kingdom orchestra leader, songwriter and accordionist.

When the vocalist Dorothy Squires joined his band, he took it as an opportunity to write songs especially for her, many of them, such as "The Gypsy," "A Tree in the Meadow," and "I'm Walking Behind You," became hits in the United States for other vocalists.

He formed a number of accordion bands, primarily The London Piano-Accordion Band.[1]
