PAUL WILLIAMS 'Old Ways and Old Paths'

  • $13.50


Paul Williams, though out of the Bluegrass spotlight for most of the past 25 years or more, has retained near legendary status for his work as the right hand man for Jimmy Martin in his peak early years with the band that included a young J. D. Crowe. It is indeed a fantastic treat to see & hear him back in a setting which truly spotlights his clear, distinctive and amazingly powerful tenor voice, as well as his mandolin work. Supported by a solid group of local musicians including his son Ritchie, Williams has assembled an unusually fine collection of 14 gospel songs which he leads with style and fervor. There is not a weak cut here, but Williams is at his soulful best on Vince Gill's wonderful GO REST HIGH ON THAT MOUNTAIN, Roscoe Reed's classic THE GREAT BEYOND, and two of his own compositions, the wonderful SEEK YE OUT THE OLD PATHS and STAY BY THE BROOK. A moving BE LOOKING FOR ME closes out a great album of truly inspired music. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. BEAULAH LAND, I'M GOING TO RISE, BE READY TO GO, HOME TO STAY
