Product Description

Amazon.com

The seductive music of Don Williams has an insulated quality about it that makes it hard to resist. It's as if the world is swirling out of control around the Gentle Giant, yet he barely raises an eyebrow, blithely singing his soft, calming tunes. Give a Hot Country Star these songs, and their simple truths about love, faith, and country life would seem like platitudes. However, in the caress of Williams's warmhearted baritone, they come off as sincere, timeless nuggets of wisdom. With the barest of accompaniment, Williams took 10 of these 12 songs to the top of the country charts (while the remaining pair reached No. 2) in the '70s and '80s. Though he penned hits for many others, his own smashes usually came courtesy of writers such as Bob McDill and Wayland Holyfield, though Williams, a Texas native, clearly relates to their unpretentious, bucolic sentiments. Throughout, Williams gives good ol' boys back their good name and women back their dignity, and through the strength of his quiet determination, he makes such conventional concepts sound unfailingly hip. --Marc Greilsamer

Don Williams - And So It Goes

Biography

Nashville, TN – March 20th, 2012 - Don Williams’ legions of fans across the globe have long been hoping, but likely not expecting to hear new recordings from him again. He has been pretty determined to spend most of his time on his Tennessee farm, quietly, with his family— and for over four decades, country music’s “Gentle Giant” has been known for doing ...

If you're a Don Williams fan, you certainly don't need a review to tell you about the songs on this CD. If you're not yet a fan, then this CD is a great place to start. This CD provides the basic "Don Collection", his older works. I don't believe anything on this work was recorded after about 1988...which is good news for you. I believe Don's best work is his oldest. He has a truly beautiful mellow, barritone voice that stands above any other you'll ever hear. Once you've enjoyed this CD, do yourself another favor and buy the oldest works of his you can find (Greatest Hits Vol. 1, or Listen to the Radio).

What bad things can you say about Don Williams? Nothing comes to mind. His voice makes the simplistic, pure songs that he sings sound like nothing else. Mr. Williams' voice is like a warm blanket. If you feel bad, put on "Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good." Feeling a little reminiscent? Play "Good Ole Boys Like Me." There is not a bad song on this album, not one. From "I Believe In You" to "Tulsa Time" and finalized by "Some Broken Hearts Never Mend," this album has it all. I didn't give it five stars for the simple reason that I listen to other artists a little more than Mr. Williams. However, this album ranks as one of my all time favorites and I love listening to it.

What a great album. I have this one and I can honestly say that I don't know which one is the best. But how can I say that anyone of Don's song aren't the best. Don has been a favorite of mine for along time. He has such a gentle voice and when you go to one of his concerts - OH MY!!! what a show. They are well worth attending and you will definitely fall in love with this gentle giant and that beautiful voice. I am never afraid to buy any of his albums or CD'S because I know that I will never be disappointed.

I was raised listening to Country and Bluegrass music from a radio sitting on top fo the fridge. I remember many artists of great popularity, the one that stayed in my heart the most was Don Williams. If you have never listened to a Don Williams song you have truly missed something. Sometimes I can feel the emotion he sings with. Don sings what the average working man feels about love. Add this to your collection you won't be sorry

l love the soothing, rich sound that Don Williams has. His voice is so mellow and I just find myself relaxing and forgetting the stress of the day frome the sound of his voice. I really think this is one great cd.

I have always thought Don Williams deserved a lot more credit than what he got. He has a great country music voice. Don can make any song his own. He's that good. And in 2000, he was awarded a collection in UMG's series '20th Century Masters.'

This is the best of Williams' MCA years. How does this collection measure up?

Positives
-Every Williams hit on the MCA label is here. 'I Believe In You,' 'Tulsa Time,' and ''Til The Rivers Run Dry' all appear on this set.
-THE SOUND QUALITY IS EXCELLENT!!!
-You get underrated classics here. 'She Never Knew Me,' 'Say It Again' and 'Good Ole Boys Like Me' all appear on this set.

Negatives
None.

Overall, this is an excellent Williams set and it's perfect for the beginner. However, Williams was given a second volume in the series, and if you enjoyed this, you may want to buy that set as well.

Highly recommended for any country music fan. ENJOY!!!
