hello, david, from another paul williams fan from west texas! in 1971, i was perusing albums in my favorite record shop, when i came across an interesting looking album featuring an odd looking fellow sitting at a piano, looking melancholy and staring out a window. above the picture were the words: "there are those who listen and those who wait to talk. this album is dedicated to the listener ." i was intrigued and bought the album, went home and immediately put the record on, and from the first time i heard 'waking up alone', i was hooked! i knew i'd discovered a songwriter whose words could express my innermost feelings better than i ever could! paul was the first artist whose albums i would eagerly anticipate and would purchase as soon as they hit the shelves! i have never been disappointed; in fact, he's always exceeded my expectations. not that paul hasn't written his share o songs that only his fans would love; but, i've always likened his songs to sex--when they're good, they're great! and even when they're not great, they're still pretty good! to this day, paul is my all-time favorite song writer, and, in my opinion, is tied with jimmy webb as america's greatest living song writer. i'm glad to find the official fan club and i'm sending off my check today to become a member. thank you for maintaining this excellent site, which is such a worthy tribute to this great american treasure! i'd love to hear from you, if you ever get the time.--roger kirkpatrick

Swan here. Excellent site. It conforms to my exacting standards. Particularly the relentless advertising. Subliminal, you know. But let's not talk about that, let's discuss you. Your devotion is... touching. We might have to... fine tune it a bit, but in the end, I'm certain you'll like the results. Your site, done your way! Of course, there's the tedious paperwork to get out of the way, first. Nothing major, just sign this and I'll have my people get in touch with your people. Together, we'll make this *sing*! Trust me.

I've been a fan for many years and have worn out several of your record albums. I'd love to have a song book from your albums from the '70s but haven't been able to find them. My two grown children are also fans, my influence from 20 years ago. I espec ally love your song about reading the Sunday papers.

Excellent work, Paul Williams is in my opinion the most underrated songwriter of our century. He is directly responsible for me becoming a musician and songwriter. I am releasing a CD this fall and I would like to include some of his songs. Do you know how I can obtain copywrite permission?

Thank you so much for allowing me to use information from your pages for my term paper, face it between the information that I am getting from you,all of the Rainbow Connection Members and Paul himself, ho can my paper receive anything but an A!?!

Take care and thanks for sharing all of your information with everyone! :)

I don't know how to thank you for putting together information on Phantom of The Paradise. It is my all time favorite film and I have been a total fan of it since its release when I was 12 years old! I was able to contact William Finley, aka Winslow, by phone a few years ago, and he is a wonderful man who truly adores his fans!! He says his experience doing Phantom was the best time he'd ever had. Also, Mr. Finley mentioned really enjoying working along side Paul Williams, and how easy he was to work with. Thanks again!!!

I discovered the Just An Old Fashioned Love Song album way back in college and those songs became very meaningful to me. I stayed with Paul thru the next two albums and then sort of lost touch. Now I think I'll get JAOFLS on CD so my 15-year old daughte can hear what I believe to be the greatest love songs ever written. Paul is a huge talent who deserves to be in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, for sure. Nice webpage by the way. Great Job. Wish I could get chords for some of Paul's songs though--nowhere to be found on the OLGA unfortunately. Ron

I can't tell you how thrilled I am to find that there are more fans (besides myself) of the great Paul Williams! It is long past due that this giant of the entertainment industry received his just accolades. Not a day has gone by, in the past 25 years tha I have been a fan of PW that I have not listened to his music or at least had one of his great songs on my mind or lips! I look forward to corresponding directly to Mr. Williams in the near future!

Dearest Paul, Your truly inspirational to me, still. You were about all that I had around me at a certain time in my life when I was a child. There was something about your voice and music that comforted me when no one else would. I know it sounds odd but it's true. I think there are others that feel the same way too! I thought I was your biggest fan for most of my life (ha ha) till I discovered the internet-MAN ALIVE! The thing is is that you've still got it! Though now you have shown a remarkable ability to grow as you have, spiritually, in yourself and sharing it with the rest of us (that goes for your work with MAP as well)! Thank you and congratulations on your path to true and pure happiness! And it is great to have you back again! P.S. Did you listen to The Masticators tape yet and did you like it?

Now through the internet, I will be able to get info of movies and songs that I have not yet witnessed. I am going to join the fan club as soon a the weekend is over. Finding information in the last few days has made me so happy, I am hoping for more and more. Maybe about him as a person, married where born when born that kind of Biography would be great.

Great site. Thank you for the information on where to find CD's to buy by P.W. I had all my LP collection stolen in 1986 which included 5 of Pauls'and have been unable to find any for sale in this country by Paul on either CD or LP.I actually thought until I found your site that I was the only person who had heard of him.One question,Paul was first introduced to me and probably many others in the UK when he appeared on the John Denver Show. He sang a song called "Look what I've Found" (I believe that was the title - which goes on about him travelling to many places alone - " and just when I'd given p looking for love look what I've found")I had this on a single but it went the way of my LP collection Has it been recorded on any albums? Anyway again a great site and best wishes for the future. Keith Wilkinson 10/11/98

I finally found you!! Tonight, in one hour, I will be watching Phantom of the Paradise on FXM for about the 100th time. I still love the movie and the songs (it is truly a cult classic). I saw you at the Ohio State Fair in 1977 and then in February 1978. I was lucky enough to get seats in the front row at the Ohio Theater and enjoyed your concert very much. I can't wait to see you again after all these years. Just tell me when and where. I just saw Bobby Sherman in concert with the Teen Idol Tour in July and he sang Cried Like a Baby. He was very nice to mention to the crowd that you wrote it. He didn't tell who wrote all the other songs that he sang. That's something, huh? There is nothing I could say that hasn't already been said about how much you have meant to me. That "Lucky Old Sun" will always be my favorite. My 15 year old son now wants me to share your albums and music books. The Phantom is one of his favorites now oo.

Where are you from?: North Louisiana

I always believed that Paul Williams was an asset to the music business. His voice and personality carries him to heights beyond belief. I have recently ran across his name associated with the production of John Denver music produced after John's death. I would very much like Mr. WIlliams to know how much I appreicate him as an intertainer and as a friend to John Denver and all those who fly with him song after song. I never got to tell John how much I loved him and what he did for mankind and our beautifu land. I never got to tell him how hearing his voice makes me glide over the mountains and soar with nature to it's fullest. I want to take this opportunity to tell Mr. Williams how much I care about what he is doing with the production of John's music as well as how much I appreicate him taking the time to keep John's legacy alive. I bid you good health and happiness in your journey beyond your wildest dreams. God Bless You Paul, and I hope to someday be able to tell you what you mean to me-like I never ot to tell John. Forever in My Thoughts, Naomi
