Robin and Linda Williams
Deeper Waters

Redhouse Records

Robin and Linda Williams move to Red House Records for "Deeper Waters, "their seventeenth recording, and the change has done them good.

This 12-track disc features 11 originals that play to the strength of their vocals. As always, they are centered lyrically on country life - its charms ("Home No. 235," "Old Plank Road") and bitter fruit ("Leaving This Land").

The album has a warm and modern feel without sounding overproduced - rock-ribbed in places, as comfortable as well-worn jeans elsewhere. The close harmony is spiced with guest vocals from Mary Chapin Carpenter, Iris DeMent and Sissy Spacek, among others.

For a couple celebrating 30-plus years together, the Williamses are very much in midstride.
