    This review is from: 20th Century Masters: Millennium Collection 2 (Audio CD)
    One thing you can say about Don Williams – after he left the folk/country trio The Pozo Seco Singers as their lead vocalist [along with Susan Taylor and Lofton Kline] following their last Billboard Pop Hot 100 in 1967 [Louisiana Man – # 97 – none of their cuts ever made the Country charts], he demonstrated that he was pure Country.

    With 56 hit singles from 1973 to 1992 he never changed his style to pander to the pop charts, whether recording for JMI [6 hits in 1973/74], Dot [1 in 1974], ABC/Dot [8 from 1975 to 1977], ABC [3 in 1978], Phono [1 in 1980], Warner [1 in 1981 – a duet with EmmyLou Harris], MCA [18 from 1979 to 1985], Capitol [9 from 1986 to 1988], and RCA [9 from 1989 to 1992].

    In that span he registered 17 # 1 hits, 22 more that were Top 5, and saw all but 4 make the Top 40. But his only Pop crossovers were 1980’s I Believe In You, which reached # 8 Adult Contemporary (AC)/# 20 Hot 100 (included here), and from 1981 Falling Again (# 39 AC) and Miracles (# 32 AC). Four others made the Hot 100 “bubble under” charts. So he was, in every respect, pure Country in that span.

    All but 1 of the 12 tracks included here were # 1s and the exception is 1980’s Good Old Boys Like Me which reached # 2 that spring. Evidently, then, this volume is merely a sampler of this talented artist’s work, albeit a very good one with excellent sound quality, a discography of the contents, and three pages of liner notes written by Robyn Flans in February 2000. There are also a few more nice colour shots of Don.

    This cd was received as promised. Think it was shipped to me the same day. When received it was in condition as advertised looked good and played good. Will order more music in the future.
