Lucinda Williams – Soundstage Performance

Having posted last year the Kasey Chambers contribution to this Soundstage performance, here’s the other part to go with it from Americana legend Lucinda Williams, I was late to Lu’s music first taking notice of her fifth release the Grammy award winning album Car Wheels on a Gravel Road which won Best Contemporary Folk Album in 1998 (this is the same category that Neko Case is nominated for in this year’s Grammy’s for Middle Cyclone), the album was re-packaged, remastered and released in deluxe form in 2006 to include three bonus tracks and a 13 song live set. Car Wheels remains a favourite album of mine and is a seminal release in the genre, a read of the credits for this album tells the story, Gulf Morlix, Steve Earle, Greg Leisz, Buddy Miller, Emmylou, Jim Lauderdale, Charlie Sexton.

This broadcast set from the July 2003 performance at PBR’s Soundstage includes tracks from Lucinda’s albums, Essence,  World Without Tears and Car Wheels.

Kasey Chambers – Soundstage July 2003

Reading fellow blogger Nelson’s recent review of Van Meter over at A Fifty Cent Lighter prompted me to dig out some Kasey Chambers CD’s I’d not listened to in while The Captain and Barricades and Brick Walls ,Nelson’s comments on Kasey’s quirky vocal resonant with me too, have always has a soft spot for Kasey’s Aussie twang.

So here’s a four song selection from a show that was recorded for PBS Soundstage which premièred back in July 03 when Kasey shared the stage with one of her heroin’s Lucinda Williams and paid tribute by playing a cover of Changed the Locks ,you can read the low-down on the show here
