Lucinda Williams [Bonus Tracks]

by Lucinda WilliamsLucinda Williams


14 New & Used Starting at $2.49


For more than a decade before her recent turn in the spotlight, Lucinda Williams was known as a musicians' musician, a vastly talented yet obscure writer and performer from the Deep South who played folk blues and penned unique portraits of the people and emotions of her homeplace. Since its release in 1988, the tunes she wrote for this eponymous disc have become country chart toppers for Patty Loveless ("The Night's Too Long"), Mary Chapin Carpenter ("Passionate Kisses"), and Emmylou Harris ("Crescent City"), and acclaimed folk/blues songstress Mollie O'Brien chose "Big Red Sun" for the title cut of her award-winning 1998 disc. If that's not enticement enough, this rerelease goes one -- make that six -- better, with a sextet of bonus tracks that showcases Williams's relaxed style as a live performer and liner notes which include her comments on the songs and their cover versions.

Lucinda Williams 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is the acoustic bonus material. Four and 1/2 seems to be a fair rating. This CD shows Williams before she bought into the idea that her songs had to reflect pain and loss most of the time. Several of these numbers became hits in cover versions. By about 2000 much of the joy seemed to leave her songs. For that reason I think this set or Gravel Road are the best places to start.

I first listened to car wheels on a gravel road .i was impressed to say the least. So I then bought the self titled album. and I cant stop listening to it. The song lyrics are so well written like shes in your kitchen telling you a story.And her voice is so real not like some vh1 diva superstar but like someone who really has something to say.Im probably going to have to buy all her albums now. this record really turned me into a fan
