Don't care about the packaging because i will be listening to it not looking at the packaging
a brilliant CD i would definately recommend.
The songs covered on this album are, as performed by the original artists: "I'll Be Here In The Morning" (Townes Van Zandt), "Talk Is Cheap" (Alan Jackson), "I Won't Give Up On You" (Jordyn Shellhart), "Sing Me Back Home" (Merle Haggard), "Working Man's Son" (??), "Healing Hands" (Steve Gillette), "If I Were Free" (Jesse Winchester), "Back To The Simple Things" (??), "Stronger Back" (Doug Gill) and "The Answer" (??). Sadly, for the songs marked (??), I couldn't find the names of the original artists.
Quality oozes from this album like filling from one of America's best, home-made burgers. The ten songs, carefully produced by Garth Fundis, show that the veteran singer picked ten golden musical nuggets out of the country music catalog, putting together a compilation of beautiful authentic country tracks. Songs like the folksy "I'll Be Here In The Morning," the romantic "Working Man's Son," the tugging-at-your-heartstrings "Sing Me Back Home" or the somewhat snappier "Talk Is Cheap" are exemplary for this. Ever the sensitive story-teller, with the easy, almost conversational musical style in which he sings, he manages to touch the soul of the listener with every intonation.
Don Williams is truly gifted as a singer and the way he interprets these classics lifts this album way above it being "just a cover cd.Read more ›
The only down side? There are only 10 songs, but if you're a true DW fan, you just have to have this one. Even with just 10 numbers, it's worth every penny!
sleeve it's like something you get when you get a free CD with a daily newspaper a temporary case. I would have paid a bit more for a decent case. For the content I would give it 100 stars and more if I could but for the case I'd be pushed to give it 1. I have given it five stars but only for the content.
The songs are all within the boundaries he has set for himself, even including a Merle Haggard classic, "Sing Me Back Home", which he makes his own. They are sung with a real sensitivity and sincerity, as any Don Williams fan will tell you, is normal. The lyrics are audible and make sense. The accompanying musicians do their part in making this CD one to treasure.
Yes, I think it really is that good. Good value, buy one now!!
When "Reflections" was released I ordered from Amazon which also included mp3 downloads in the price. I was therefore able to hear the album tracks before the cd arrived and I played the complete album several times over the next couple of days and again since.
I believe this album is one of his best and I say that even though I play all his others on a regular basis. Don is so easy to listen to and the music is so good .
I highly recommend this latest collection to everyone.
