CDs by Paul Williams and the Victory Trio

God put us all here for a reason. He surely must have sent Paul Williams to sing as Williams has now sung his wonderful clear tenor voice for more than a half century. In the 50s, Jimmy Martin said Paul Williams was one of his favorite tenor singers. Time has not diminished the quality of his remarkable voice - still clear, strong and distinctive and unchanged by time.

Williams is a blessing. He sings of his Savior, and he ministers to us in song. His mandolin is of tone and timing rather than hot licks and suits his style to perfection - pure, sincere, old fashioned honest bluegrass gospel.

The Victory Trio - Dan Moneyhun on guitar and lead vocals, Adam Winstead of rhythm guitar, Jerry Keys on banjo, Susie Keys on acoustic and Keith Williams on fiddle - is a solid group of pickers and singers with their harmony work particularly outstanding.

What a journey it has been for Williams as he sings in the opening "Back in the Old Home." The title is so apropos. Timeless music.
