Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Cafe Carolina
Used - LP - MCA-5493
1984 US Original, Pressed At The Pinckneyville Plant. Co-Produced By Williams & Garth Fundis, Features Jim Horn And Strongs Performed By Nashville String Machine. "Williams Has A Very Identifiable Core Sound, But Occasional Subtle Differences Can Seem Like Major Alterations. Here He Recruits Sax Player Jim Horn, And While Horn Doesn't Play On Every Track, His Mere Presence Provides A Fresh Change." AMG Review By Tom Roland. more

Especially For You
New - LP - 5210
Sealed 1981 Embossed Jacket Original, Small Saw Cut. A Year After His Biggest-Selling Record Ever, The Pressure Was On Don Williams To Deliver, And He Did. It’s Remarkably Consistent, Full Of Great Songs And The Now Trademark Production Sound Of Williams And Garth Fundis. There Are Some New Twists Here As Well. While The Song Catch This Time Out Was As Good As Any, With Contributions From Bob McDill, Rick Beresford, Roger Cook, Dave Hanner, And Other Cats In The Band Such As Dave Kirby And Charles Cochran, There Are Two Covers Here Of A Very Special Nature. The First Is The Album's Opener, "Fair Weather Friends." Written By Joe Allen And Johnny Cash, The Song Feels As If It Were Written For Williams Despite The Steady But Muted Cash Rhythm That Is Ever Present In The Song. One Can Hear Cash's Voice Singing It Too, As He Has For Years, But This Version Doesn't Sound So Much Like A Proclamation Or Exhortation, But Like A Fireside Chat From An Elder To A Younger. The Other Is A Duet With Emmylou Harris On A Read Of Townes Van Zandt's Jewel "If I Needed You," Which Kicks Off Side Two. Astonishingly Faithful To The Original And So Ghostly In Its Slow, Shimmering Approach That It's Almost Not Even There, It Has The Wallop Of An Emotional Train Wreck. Specially Priced And Recommended. more

I Believe In You
Used - LP - MCA-5133
1980 US Original. Co-Produced With Garth Fundis. Strong VG++ Copy. "Don Williams, Whose Star Had Been On The Rise For Nearly A Decade, Hit His Pinnacle In 1980. I Believe In You, Both Single And Album, Were The Best-selling Recordings Williams Had Ever Had -- And This Man Had Sold More Than A Few. From The Mid-'70s On, Williams Continued To Refine A Formula That Didn't Feel Like One -- Choose The Best Songs From A Proven Stable Of Writers For Your Particular Laid-Back Style Of Delivery, Use The Same Musicians In The Studio, And, Along With Your Former Engineer, Produce The Record Yourself. It Worked Like A Charm At ABC, And On MCA It Worked Even Better. I Believe In You Is The Most Seamlessly Beautiful Album Williams Recorded Since Expressions, And In Terms Of The Quality Of The Material, Maybe Even Eclipsed It, Though It's A Tough Call. The Free-Flowing Easy Stroll Of Williams' Singing Underscored By Dreamy Yet Simple Country Arrangements On These Ten Songs Is Wondrous. Bob Mcdill Wrote Half This Record, Which Includes Such Williams Staples As The Faux Caribbean-Flavored "I Want You Back Again," The Shimmering "Falling Again," The Folk-Flavored Outlaw Country Of "Simple Song," And Side Two's Opening Kicker, "Ain't It Amazing," As Well As The Closer, The Airy And Impressionistic "Slowly But Surely." He Didn't Pen The Smash, Though; A Lilting Country Song Dipped In Early-'60s Bobby Darin Rock That Was Authored By Roger Cook And Sam Hogin. In Many Ways It's Far From The Best Song On The Record, But It Does Have That Slowpoke Hook That Sucked In Virtually Everybody Who Heard It. In Sum, The Album Is Solid Track To Track, Without A Weak Moment, And Gives Williams Fans What They Desired Most: A Collection Of Tunes That Were All Love Songs No Matter How They Were Framed, Because No One, No One, Sings A Love Song Like Don Williams, Even Now."
