7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 13th February 2015
Bill Wilson didn't mess around. He had some songs he wanted to record so he literally went round to Bob Johnston's house and asked him to do it for him. Bob Johnston just happened to have produced albums by Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel and Leonard Cohen. I read somewhere that Johnston's first reaction was to to tell Wilson to fuck off, but Wilson's persistence paid off and he got Johnston to listen to some of his songs. Johnston decided to start making the album that night he was so blown away. He called up a few legendary musicians such as guitarist Charlie Daniels and drummer Kenny Buttrey to play on the album. The result was "Ever Changing Minstrel", an understated classic of dusty, country tinged rock. The opening pair of songs, "Rainy Day Resolution" and "Pay Day Give Away" are the most immediate tracks on here but further listening is rewarding. The mournful "To Rebecca" has a touch of Paul Seibel about it. One of the high points is "Long Gone Lady" which benefits from some great female backing vocals. He gets a bit too Jesus-y for my liking on the album's two low points "Father Let Your Light Shine Down" and "Following My Lord", on the former, his voice is reminiscent of Kenny Rogers. If it wasn't for those songs, this would get a better score, but they may really float some other folk's boat.
