Played this earlier today. I've loved Don Williams for a very long time. Lots of the well known songs are here like I'm Just A Country Boy; Till The Rivers All Run Dry; I Recall A Gypsy Woman; Tulsa Time and You're My Best Friend.
We had a short song list of an album at my radio station when I was there - about maybe 16-18 tracks long. There's only 23 on this album, so not a huge list to play from, but I believe it's a balanced entry album for anyone looking for an overview of Mr. Williams's music. It's a lovely listen.
Although I'm of the older generation I have only recently found Don Williams, first thru the internet which made purchase the CD. Being the best of, it has 23 songs which cover a large time scale, you can hear his voice changing over the years, all very acceptable. I enjoyed the relaxed style and will purchase another CD by him in the future. Easy listening, slightly country and western I think in style.
I saw Don Williams live in concert about 35 years ago, and have always loved his voice. I had a couple of LPs at one time, but having heard him on the radio recently I decided that I needed the album again - this time on CD so that I could listent to it in the car. It didn't disappoint - the voice and words are so gentle and soothing - I listen to it often.
Like the header says, Don Williams on this cd is a little on the ballad side compared with some of the louder more lively country from other artists I have in my vast cd collection but all the same has some good tracks, ideal for background music late on when things are quiet, more for the dedicated Don Williams fans though,
Haven't really listened to Don Williams for a few years and then came across this CD full of all his hits and remembered how good he is. All of his most famous tracks are here and the sound of the CD is superb for such a low price - highly recommended.
Brilliant CD.....this has all his best songs and I cant stop playing them! I have an old LP record of his but no record player so having this CD means I can now listen and sing along to some great songs from the man!
