ANOTHER GOODY FOR MY COLLECTION
on 24 October 2017
Lucinda defies categorisation to me. A lot of people may say she's 'Country' or 'Folk', but I don't like 'Country' or 'Folk' so she can't be them because I just love everything about her, from her songwriting skills..... to their arrangements....... to her great way of expressing stuff through the inflections in her voice.....to the way she covers other peoples tunes so as to completely own them. A complete lack of false virtuous tweeness helps too. I have 10 of her albums to date but I've now downloaded the 'deluxe edition' of her eponymous album as it captures a load more of the various shades of her performing styles, both in the studio and live. She does very little wrong in my opinion and can kick up some Bluegrass and ( supposedly ) Country dust as easily as as some speakeasy Blues at the flip of a coin, and it all sounds like no one else but her. I did tell a little lie about not liking all Country And Folk because I like Diana Williams too ( maybe it's because her voice has strong character too ).
