Album Review

The gospel-singing Williams Brothers mark their demi-centennial with an album of old and new music that's divided into three parts. On the first handful of songs, they address the present, reaffirming their commitment on "All These Years (It Ain't Over)." In the middle of the disc come half a dozen old favorites. Then, at the end there's more new material. Actually, old or new, the Williams Brothers continue to sound like a soul/R&B vocal group from the 1960s or ‘70s. "You," one of the new songs up front, has the sound of ‘70s funk to it, while "He's Alright," another new one near the end, is reminiscent of the Temptations' "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" to the point of almost being actionable. Interestingly, the Williams Brothers also have a strain of country music that comes out on the oldie "Help Us Jesus, Help Us Lord," with a steel guitar prominent in the arrangement, and in the closer, a cover of Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA." The collection is a good summary of the sound of the Williams Brothers over the decades, and it suggests they still have a few good years left in them.
