Here are three UK Top 60 albums from 1977, 1978 and 1979 by US Country singer Don Williams. Though he has had great success in the US Country charts, it has been here in the UK where he has enjoyed a loyal and lasting following built up by constant touring. Don Williams came out of retirement in 2006 to carry on recording and touring. This release is digitally remastered with new liner notes. It's new to the BGO catalogue.
Top Customer Reviews
Having started well as a member of the Pozo Seco Singers (I have some of their music too), Don maintained a consistently high standard throughout the seventies and eighties as a solo singer. Although I loved them all, there were four that I particularly liked above the others of which one is featured here, that being Expressions.
Taking them in order, the set begins with Visions, from 1977. Strangely, only one single was released from the album, that being the country #1 hit Some broken hearts never mend. Several other songs sound like they could have been hits, and other artists took advantage. Janie Fricke (who changed her surname to Frickie because people kept incorrectly pronouncing it Frick) had a country hit with I'll need someone to hold me when I cry, while Rex Allen Junior had a country hit with I'm getting good at missing you. Of the other tracks here, I particularly like Expert at everything and Cup o' tea, which are the last two tracks on the album.
The next album featured is my favourite of the three, Expressions, from 19, 78. It features \don's #1 country hits Tulsa time (later covered by Eric Clapton for his album Bsckless) and It must be love, together with his country #3 hit Lay down beside me. Although Don wrote this song, the first version of the song released was by Kenny Rogers, on his eponymous album that featured Lucille. I have never seen an explanation of why Kenny's version was released first (albeit only as an album track) but stranger things have happened in the music business.Read more ›
