Country music star Don Williams has passed. I think his biggest hits here were 'I Recall A Gypsy Woman' and 'You're My Best Friend', which weren't in my musical bag but which were nice, well-crafted songs. He apparently had 17 Number Ones in the Country chart.

RIP Don.

I don't mind the odd DW track.

RIP Don

There's a few DW tunes, I like. Most of it, wasn't my cuppa, even though, I love a goodly amount, of Country music. Lots of DW music, would get put on my dad's "mix tape" for summer holiday's, between '81-'94. Smile

RIP.

I really like two of Don Williams best known songs 'I Recall A Gypsy Woman' and 'You're My Best Friend...

Presumably there are JA covers of some of his songs?

RIP

Now that I'm sober, here's a Don Williams inna Reggae style:

My pleasure, that's one of the few Williams' tunes, I like. A lot. Wink
