New Music Review: Lucinda Williams' "West"

From KUT | 07:51

music-rich review of Lucinda Williams' latest album "West", in stores 2/13/07

Lucindawilliams_small KUT Music Director and Texas Monthly music writer Jeff McCord reviews the new album by Lucinda Williams, "West." The CD hits stores on February 13, 2007. Williams is a three-time Grammy Award winner known for putting lush, poetic lyrics to charging folk rock rhythms. In 2002, she was named "America's best songwriter" by TIME magazine. She produced two landmark albums -- her self-titled debut and 1998's "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road." The latter took five years to make, and it helped crystallize the image of Williams as a perfectionist frozen by her insecurities. She's put out several albums in the last ten years, but none quite held up to critics' expectations. KUT's Jeff McCord describes Williams' new collection of songs as "easily her most powerful work in years."

Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams

From Joyride Media | 59:00

New one-hour radio special traces how Hank Williams’ “lost notebook” of unrecorded songs were found and set to music for new recordings by Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Jack White, Patty Loveless, Merle Haggard, Sheryl Crow and others.

Hankwilliamslostnotebooks_small The version posted here is what we call the "AAA version" based on how the various artists' music and interviews are featured.  A "country" version is also available on request.  The basic difference is how much we use Jakob Dylan and Jack White vs. Alan Jackson and Hank Williams Jr.
