Lucinda Williams

Anyone have any updates as to when the new Live album is coming out?

btw Lucinda does a nice duet on "Overtime" with Willie Nelson on his latest album.
Sometimes you wonder if your walking in the wrong direction.

Does anyone else think Lucinda's "Essence" is different than her other albums???
I only recently picked up that title after acquiring a number of boots & hearing songs from that CD done live.

I was taken aback by the sultriness of her style on "Essence". Don't know if she was TRYING to do something different or if it was just serendipitous.

I really like Lucinda Williams, but I don't own any albums of hers. I am quite of fan of the songs Broken Butterflies and Sharp Cutting Wings (Song to a Poet).
How lovely and how doomed this connection of everyone with lungs.

Essense does seem to have a softer style than Car Wheels or the later World Without Tears. I hardly think anything with Lucinda is accidental. Didn't she obsess about one of her earlier albums and re-record the entire thing?

Sole--
You've got to get Sweet Old World.....and all the rest.
Sweet was my first real introduction to her...of course I have favorites from all of her albums but this would be my desert island pick.

I like "Broken Butterflies" but it has a totally different feel from the rest of Essence.
The title song is a personal loin burner.

Everybody needs a little forgiveness.

I just bought tickets for a show in June! I'm so excited! ...and a little sick about $21 in service charges on three tickets, but I'll get over it.

Just a reminder that Live at the Fillmore came out yesterday and the ACL DVD comes out on Tuesday.

Yes, Car Wheels.

If you've ever heard the original semi-finished version of Car Wheels (produced by Gurf Morlix), you'll probably agree she was smart to re-record it. Although the new version she created with assistance from Steve Earle (she was very impressed by the great sound he achieved on his I Feel Alright album) is vastly superior IMO, Gurf never really forgave her for ditching him and working with someone else on it -- in fact, Lucinda has said Broken Butterfies was written about him.

Essence is my personal favorite among her CDs, in fact it's probably my favorite album of the millenium to date. The production, which was a drastic departure from her earlier work, was inspired by Daniel Lanois's work on Dylan's Time Out of Mind, which really impressed Lucinda at the time. As far as I'm concerned, the intimacy she achieves with her singing on many of those tracks is unsurpassed.

Interesting detail - I hadn't heard that before. Essence could easily be my favorite album of all time.
