4.0 out of 5 stars The Best Album of the American South., 20 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Car Wheels On A Gravel Road (Audio CD)
The American South. Home of back water hicks, swamps, latent racism and the setting for James Lee Burke novels. Well yes it is, but there is someone else who will now forever be connected with it - Luicinda Williams.
CAR WHEELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD is THE Southern album to own. The landscape, sounds and smells of the Deep South inhabit and give life to this album. So when Luicinda Williams sings "Sittin in the kitchen, a house in Macon, Loretta singing on the radio, smells of coffee, eggs and bacon - car wheels on a gravel road". You know where you are. Her voice is the key. It drips with Southern sexuality. And her timing is perfect. Best Songs? CAR WHEELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD, with Buddy Millar plucking his mando guitar, is nostalgic but never sickly. Also, the up tempo METAL FIRECRACKER and the self-affirming JOY stand out. But there is not really a bum track on here. The album contains some of the most pleasing, flowing music I have heard for years.
This record makes me want to go to Southern America. And while I save up the pennies, CAR WHEELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD will have to suffice.
