Synopsis

Amazon.com
Time seems to have stood still for Don Williams. His first major-label release in five years has the gentle, traditional classicism that made him one of the biggest-selling country singers of the '70s. Once again every emotional piece is in place: the musicianship is acoustic, fresh, and picturesque, and Williams's deep, liquid phrasing and completely unaffected songwriting--as well as smart song selection, notably Kevin Welch's "Something 'Bout You"--have aged with mellow warmth. The elegiac story "Pancho," told from the convincing perspective of an aging Cisco, sounds like a lament for today's country music as much as a timeless outlaw ballad. "Pancho, don't you like me no more?" Williams sings. "Because, Pancho, we're heading towards our end." Even if radio finds Williams too old for airplay, lovers of country at its most introspective and subtle will find Williams's light, magical touch as inviting as ever. --Roy Kasten

I Turn the Page

"How wonderful to have a new album with new songs by my favorite Don Williams! Some to make you smile with memories of your own, some to bring a tear to your eye, and all guaranteed to make you move to the rythm of the music. The wonderful voice of Don Williams has done it again and we are all blessed because of this latest contribution. Hopefully it won't be long before he sends more our way."
Don Williams Gets Better With Time

"The more you listen to I turn the page the more you will love it. You find yourself getting wrapped up in the story of each song because Don's voice is so easy to listen to. Cracker Jack Diamond is a story of young love that stands the test of time. Ride On is for anyone who knows what it means to hurt and wants to get past it. There is Something About You, makes you want to change the way you drink your coffee in the morning. I Turn The Page is simply outstanding in every way from song selection, to Don's delivery to the music. Like sitting in front of a warm fire on a cold winter's day, I Turn The Page will warm your heart and soul. Sit back and enjoy."
A good album with a career-highlight song

"This is a satisfying piece. And it will slip comfortably in with everything you already own by Don Williams. "How Did You Do It," buried deep in the album, is one of the finest tracks he has done (yet) - standing up there in its world-wise, wondered lament with "Good Old Boys" or "Lord I Hope This Day Is Good." This album won't win any airplay, and won't make any new fans (in the USA). But for those of us that love this man and his songs, this is another deep draught."
