She brought back my Joy,
This review is from: Car Wheels On A Gravel Road (Audio CD)I am absolutely new to Lucinda Williams after discovering her through a great cover of JOY by Betty Lavette.
Went out and bought this album. I have to say it is a classic - there are just no weak tracks - no filler - anywhere. I listen to all sorts of music - on playlist at the moment is Mercury Rev, Tool and Rufus Wainwright. Varied I think you would agree - Lucinda Williams' talent stands up to all of them.
My only dilemma is which of her albums to get next. The songwriting, singing and musicianship are top class.
I see there are a couple of reviewers who don't get this album - all I can say is I feel sorry for them.
Perhaps its being a bloke but that edgy drawl in Lucinda's voice just does me in. Move over Hank Williams there's a new kid on the block.
