All Music Guide - Shawn M. Haney
Presented here is a collection of songs performed by a wealthy gathering of supremely talented musicians, led by Mason Williams, a legendary songwriter/composer in his own right. Released under the Warner Bros. label, the album Music 1968-1971 is just that -- pure music with soul, passion, and enough fire to fuel a storm and light the listener's spirit.

What is most enriching about this recording is the large group of musicians from all backgrounds who send the songs into higher soundscapes.

Williams ends the album with a touch of finesse and adoration to his appreciative fans, expressing his sincere feelings in "A Gift of Song," a song written by Pat Ingles, a favorite singer and influence.
