Muze PNote The Universal Music Group maintains compilations of its major artists at different price points. There are two Don Williams volumes in the company's budget-priced best-of series, 20th Century Masters -- The Millennium Collection and a Williams entry in the discount-priced single-disc series The Definitive Collection. The next level up is the double-disc Gold series, and for the Williams album Universal's reissue label Hip-O simply has looked back seven years to a 2000 compilation called Anthology and repackaged it, using the same songs in the same order and even reprinting Colin Escott's excellent liner notes. Williams reached the Billboard country singles charts 56 times between 1972 and 1992, and the bulk of those tracks were released by labels now in the Universal catalog, the major exceptions being nine singles released between 1986 and 1989 on Capitol Records and another nine released between 1989 and 1992 on RCA. This collection includes 40 of those 56 chart records. Hip-O has licensed three of the Capitol singles and four of the RCA ones. That means a number of Williams' later Top Ten hits are missing, but at least an effort has been made to cover his entire career. More troubling are the omissions of two major hits that didn't have to be licensed, "Stay Young," which hit number one, and "Mistakes," which hit number three. To the confusion of critics and the frustration of fans, major-label compilations have a tendency to do this, deliberately leave off a couple of big hits, presumably to force consumers to buy some other compilation. ("Stay Young" is on the second 20th Century Masters -- The Millennium Collection best-of; for "Mistakes," one must go back to an earlier Williams compilation series, The Best of Don Williams, Vol. 3, from 1984.) It is a perverse practice that should be deplored, and it keeps Gold from being an ideal Don Williams compilation, even though it is a very good one. ~ William Ruhlmann

Artist Overview

Don Williams's mellow, amiable baritone and easygoing approach made him one of the biggest country stars of the 1970s. With simple arrangements, straightforward songs, and an emotionally honest but endearingly laconic delivery, Williams had an instantly appealing signature sound. He rarely strayed far from that template, but there was little reason to, especially with the outpouring of hits he scored throughout the '70s. The artist's laidback sound was surprisingly influential in the rock world--much of Eric Clapton's '70s work was modeled after Williams's style.
