Any Lucinda Williams Fans???

  1. I think Lucinda Williams is the best singer-songer writer period. Her new album his very raw and rough cut and I love it. Her last three albums were consistently good.

    She's hard to classify, I guess it would be alt. country/folk rock kind of thing.

    Hmm, the name sounds familiar, but I can't think of any song that she does.

    "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road"!!

    "Right in Time"!!! Love that song.

    Yes, I'm a Lucinda Williams fan. I have that album in my CD player right now.

    Now....have you heard Kasey Chambers?! Check out her album Barricades and Brickwalls.

    (Click on screen ... it takes you to another screen. You can play the songs at the bottom left hand corner of the screen. I love the whole album.)

    Oh, and I think they are classified as "alternative country."

    Zee, I'll check out Kasey Chambers again, I've heard her before, wasn't too interested. Thanks.

    Since the Grammy Award-winning Car Wheels on a Gravel Road and the quieter but still powerful Essence, Lucinda Williams has been in a can-do-no-wrong state of mind. On her second Lost Highway release, she is simply magnificent, conjuring narcotic vegetation on "Fruits of My Labor," amateur psychoanalysis on "Sweet Side," and then grating dissonance on the sexually appreciative "Righteously." When she wants to, Williams owns female country rock (the brilliant homage "Real Live Bleeding Fingers and Broken Guitar Strings"), and she offers hard-earned perspective on "People Talkin.' " As a songwriter, Williams has few peers and is routinely stunning here, alternating between raw exposure ("Those Three Days") and tender subtlety ("Overtime"). Regardless of one's politics, the understated beauty of the title cut could easily be a theme song for our current troubled times, and Williams' world-weary delivery works wonders.--RW

    She's mainly word of mouth and by critical acclaim. She virtually gets no airplay.

    She is my favorite.
    The car wheels cd was a gift and my first exposure to her.
