"The album was produced by Chris Wardman, who has masterfully laid out this record in such a way the listener will want to experience the entire record, track one through eleven without interruption."
Billy Manzik’s “All Together Now” is a great record from an extremely versatile musician
By ‘Rebel’ Rod Ames
I received this record for review a couple weeks back and have listened to it twice so far, just trying to figure out why I haven’t heard of Billy Manzik before. As I’ve stated time and time again. I live in a very rural part of Texas where radio is about as bland as radio can get. There is one exception; Big G’s Texas Road Show, but that doesn’t even air until midnight which of course is way past this listener’s bedtime, unless I happen to be guesting on the show. When that happens, I have to take a nap in order to stay awake until 2am.
Sorry for the rant but you get the picture. Searching for great music has become a lot of work. It's fun work, but work never the less.
