Robin and Linda Williams
Visions Of Love

Sugar Hill Records

Valentine's Day is fast approaching on the radar and soundtracks for romance will soon be in high demand. Virginia-based folkies Robin and Linda Williams answer the call in style with Visions of Love (Sugar Hill), set to be released early this week. The Williams duo, regular performers on Garrison Keillor's NPR radio program A Prairie Home Companion for over 20 years, cover 13 time-ripen takes on love, loss and yearning. Produced by Keillor, who initiated the project, the beautifully played and sung collection includes gems by writers from country music pioneer Jimmie Rodgers {"Mississippi Delta Blues") to Bruce Springsteen ("If I Should Fall Behind"). The Williamses' luminous versions of Merle Haggard's "Hungry Eyes" and the old Conway Twitty/Loretta Lynn duet, "After the Fire is Gone," linger for a long while. Mighty purty stuff to share with your sweetie.
