Fortunately for him, Williams has other work. He plays Jesse Hubbard, the streetwise black on the TV soap opera All My Children. On this woeful debut LP, he fights a losing battle to stay on pitch. He does some rap singing that makes him sound like a cross between Dick Butkus and Bullwinkle Moose. And he proves that yes you can, if you try hard enough, make a boring version of the old Cat Stevens hit Wild World. Williams' AMC colleague, Debbie Morgan, shows up long enough to upstage him on a duet of the title tune, injecting a musical note into what is otherwise a sad waste of vinyl that might better have gone into seat covers.
