Not only did this Texan folk-rock trio launch country star Don Williams' career, but they scored six chart hits in their own right, virtually none of which have come out on CD! But all six of those hits appear in our package, which includes both of the Po

"Pozo-Seco Singers" is a difficult name to remember, but play the first 15-seconds of `Time' or `Look What You've Done,' and every Baby Boomer will know the song immediately. The music of the Pozo-Seco Singers is as unforgettable as the group's name is obscure. Susan Taylor's beautiful and unblemished voice leads songs such as `Time,' `She Understands Me' (Susan changes the word "she" to "he"), and `Forget His Name.' Her peachy vocals are a splendid harmonic partner for Don Williams' warm but powerful baritone. Don sings most of the up-tempo material including `Look What You've Done,' and `It Ain't Worth The Lonely Road Back.' The harmonious sound of a soprano (Susan), tenor (Lofton Kline) and a baritone (Don) is thrilling. It is interesting that these three folkies from Texas chose Folk, but avoided the slightest hint of political protest. Despite the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam War and the assignation of John F. Kennedy, Pozo-Seco sang about loneliness (Tomorrow Is A Long Time), coming of age (Changes) and fighting calories (Diet). Their music was a welcome respite from the social turmoil of 1966-67.
I've never been a fan of "Greatest Hits" and "Best of" packages - I'd prefer to have the original albums, and decide for myself which are the "best" selections. Pozo-Seco compilations often neglect worthwhile compositions such as the comely `She Understands Me' and the inspiring `Johnny.' Time and I Can Make It Without You are two delectable albums by a group who ignored social and political controversy, but instead focused their musical outlook on innocence and relationships.
Technical Note: The overall sound quality of these two albums is radiant. As usual, Collectors' Choice has done an excellent job searching the Columbia archives for quality master recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! October 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The mix of Don Williams bass and Susan Taylor's angelic vocals is a match made in heaven. I bought the LP "Time" back in 1965 without ever having heard of the group. The picture of a sultry Susan Taylor on the cover and a nice selection of standard 60s folk tunes in the track listing was more than enough for me. Every song on that "Time" LP turned out to be a knockout. When this became available on CD I jumped at the chance to buy and discovered a new gem as a bonus track, "I Believed It All", a beautifully sung ode to the the innocence of childhood.
Williams of course went on to bigger and better things in a C&W vein but unfortunately Susan Taylor seems to have faded into obscurity. In any case, this CD would definitely be in my "stranded on a desert isle" backpack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mellow sixties folk at its best March 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This trio of Texans included Susan Taylor, Donnie Williams, who became better known as country singer Don Williams, and Lofton Kline. As two of them faded into obscurity, you might think that this album is really about the other one, but not so. All three were excellent singers and each of them got their chance to sing lead.
There is a good mix of original songs and covers. They had a series of minor American pop hits - they never made the top 30, but they came close a couple of times. Their hits were Time, I'll be gone, I can make it with you and Look what you've done.
The covers include If I fell (Beatles), Come a little bit closer (Jay and the Americans). Guantanamera (Sandpipers), Silver threads and golden needles (originally recorded by Wanda Jackson, but later an American pop hit for the Springfields, with Dusty as lead singer), House of the rising sun (most famously a big hit for the Animals, though their version was also a cover), She understands me (which I first heard sung by Teresa Brewer as He understands me, although I think the original singer was Johnny Tillotson), You've lost that loving feeling (Righteous brothers), If I were a carpenter, Almost persuaded (David Houston), Ribbon of darkness (Gordon Lightfoot) and Louisiana man.
If you enjoy mellow sixties folk music, particularly by the Brothers four, you will enjoy this.

This group should still be together! Susan Taylor's voice is as pretty as any I've ever heard and Don Williams... What can I say? His smooth semi-baritone voice is ultra-pleasant! Great talent! I feel lucky to have found this CD! It would be an honor to have their other recordings...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pozo-Seco Singers/Eric Clapton March 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I,too, recall listening and buying Pozo-Seco Singers 45 "Time"

in the San Francisco Bay Area where I grew up. Apparently Pozo-Seco were only a hit in the LA/SF area most likely because of the influence of Drake Radio i.e. KHJ/KFRC.

What is most interesting is that Don Williams,the tenor of Pozo-Seco, went on to become Don Williams, a HUGE Country star and the biggest influence to Eric Clapton since Muddy Waters. Listen, It's true... Clapton in the late 70s early 80's was really Don Williams. "Livin' on Tulsa Time", "Wonderful Tonight":. etc.. Clapton was either Williams or J.J. Cale.

Oh yeah... this is a great 60's era folk album...
