NEW LUCINDA WILLIAMS!!

SPECIAL INDIE STORE PRICE

Lucinda Williams, GOOD SOULS BETTER ANGELS (Highway20, Special limited-time small indie price $11.98)

Lucinda Williams is one of our finest songwriters, and sings with one of the most characterful voices, now going on forty years. Her newest album contains some of her most powerful (and politically pointed) songs yet, and—recording with her longtime touring band—some of her bluesiest and rawest performances. If you heard Lucinda sing “We’ve Come Too Far to Turn Around” on her last album (with saxophonist Charles Lloyd and the Marvells), you can expect more pointed songs, heard in a new light during our current times. The new songs include “Pray the Devil Back to Hell,” “You Can’t Ride Me,” “Bone of Contention,” “Man Without a Soul,” “When the Way Gets Dark,” and the final, consoling song, “Good Souls.”
