Devil in Disguise

Bill Giant (a.k.a. Harvey Zimmerman or Bill Zimmerman) recorded between 1956 and 1966 for President (as Billy Merman), Mark (as Ethan Giant), Signature (Bert & Bill Giant), Dot, MGM, Avon, Bounty and Decca.

Bill Giant didn't seem to catch on as a singer too well, but he did catch on as a songwriter with Baum and Kaye, writing a great portion of songs recorded by Elvis Presley. Though most were considered as throwaway songs used in his movies, the trio did at least produce one major hit recorded by the King in 1963, "(You're The) Devil In Disguise".
