Not the Paul Williams who wrote MOR/pop smashes in the '60s, but a chap who goes back ever further into American music history. For this Paul was once a member of the Lonesome Pine Fiddlers and Jimmy Martin And The Sunny Mountain Boys whom connoisseurs of bluegrass will know were pioneers of the music. This Paul's first recording for 30 years, shows that the good ol' boy has lost none of his vocal passion, and his high Appalachian tones (with great harmonies from James King) soar along on a set of delightful gospel songs, while the banjo and fiddle playing, by Jason Moore and Jason Carter, is exemplary. Oh, by the way, that Jason Carter is a different one from the UK-based Spanish guitarist.just so's there's no confusion.
