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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recall a gypsy woman 16 Sep 2004
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Don Williams, the gentle giant of country music, was very popular in the seventies and eighties. He had many hits on the country charts in his native America but he scored a surprise UK top twenty pop hit with I recall a gypsy woman, which wasn't even released as a single in America. So it is that American compilations never include this song while British compilations (of which this is one) always include it. Don only had one other UK hit - You're my best friend, which made the top forty but is actually his most popular song in the UK.
So this collection begins with I recall a gypsy woman and ends with You're my best friend. Between those two classics are some of the best songs that Don ever recorded including Till the rivers all run dry, Some broken hearts never end, Tulsa time, It must be love, I believe in you, Stay young and Amanda (a song that Waylon took to the top of the country charts).
Many of these songs were big hits for Don in America but this compilation was released with British buyers in mind - those looking for a comprehensive collection of his American hits should go for the double CD titled Anthology, which I've already reviewed.
This compilation serves as an ideal introduction to Don's music for Brits everywhere, including expatriates living in America who are wondering where they can find the song that originally got them interested in Don's music back in the seventies - I recall a gypsy woman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 14 Dec 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm 19, and I love Don Williams. I admit that I didn't hear of him until a few months ago, please don't hate me. I was sitting in ront of the computer in our living room, when I heard some really nice music coming from the kitchen where my mum was. I really like country music, especially Marty Robbins, Dolly Parton, and Lonestar, and I asked her who it was. She replied Don Williams, I went back to the computer, logged on the internet and bought this CD, and his love sogns cd, which really was a comfort when I was going through a bad patch after moving to university. 'Tears of the loney, keep falling all the time, Tears of the lonely never dry.' What a sad song! But it isn't on this cd, so if you want to hear it, you'll have to listen to the love songs cd.
But I reccomend this cd to new fans, who aren't quite sure what to make of him, yet i still think that this cd needs to be at least 4 discs long, because all his songs are great, I have no idea how they managed to pick just 20 of them...

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like country and romantic 20 May 2009
By Zoska
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...you will certainly love him. Very nice voice, deep and warm. I didn't know him before purchasing this CD. He is real good in his field (I stress this: country and romantic, if you are looking for something modern, go your way)

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as I remember 24 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember Don Williams from 20 years ago he was then one of my favorite country and western singers of all time and still is today. He still sounds the same to day as he did back then. And great value from the seller and quick delivery.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the original soungs 14 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
Sadly for the most part the classic Don William songs on this album are not the original versions. They are ok as far as they go but Don sounds like he is firing on 2 cylinders. A bit disappointing. For those who didn't get the origninal vinyl albums volume 1, 2 etc you will probably enjoy but sad for those of us who discovered him in the '70s.
