The Changer and the Changed: A Record of the Times [30th Anniversary Enhanced]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
More than simply the best-selling album on the stalwart Olivia Records label and a classic of the "women's music" subgenre, Cris Williamson's The Changer and the Changed is a brilliant '70s singer/songwriter album.

All ten songs are sublime, though the opening "Waterfall," featuring some sterling Fender Rhodes work by Williamson, and the solo piano ballad "One of the Light" are the clear highlights. The album was remixed slightly and reissued in a slightly revised cover in 1977; this version is the one available on CD, but the differences between it and the original mix are minor. [The 2005 reissue includes bonus content on CD-ROM.]
