LUCINDA WILLIAMS
Blessed

It’s not all that hard to find an artist who’s capable of offering a guided tour of life’s dark clouds – nor is it rare to come into contact with one who can hone in on the silver lining. But the ability to do both with equal grace, well, that’s an altogether rarer gift – and it’s one that Lucinda Williams displays ... Read more in Amazon's Lucinda Williams Store

Product Description

Lost Highway is set to release the first-ever live album from Grammy Award-winning artist Lucinda Williams. Lucinda recorded this collection of live songs over her 3 night appearance at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore Auditorium. Live @ the Fillmore is on double CD and comes in a deluxe packaging. All 22 tracks that appear in this collection were hand selected by Lucinda. This double album includes such favorites as 'Joy', 'I Lost It', 'Essence' and 'Blue', but Williams digs even deeper into her past with gritty versions of 'Pineola' and 'Changed The Locks'. Live @ the Fillmore features one of the best bands on the road today, with guitarist, pedal steel and background vocalist Doug Pettibone, anchored by Taras Prodaniuk on bass and Jim Christie on drums and percussion. 2005.

Few artists take the sort of emotional risks that Lucinda Williams does. Pouring her all into songs of hurt, need, and desire, she turns every live performance into an adventure, as the first concert recording of her career attests. Coproduced by Williams, Live at the Fillmore showcases her raw wound of a voice and the rough edges of her band in all their unvarnished glory, as the music cuts across conventional categories of country, blues, folk, rock (and rap) to strike a distinctly personal chord. Even the pacing is risky. Whereas most artists plan their sets to hit hardest at the beginning and end, Williams inverts the dynamic, sustaining a mood of reflective melancholy for extended stretches that open and close the album, while building to an explosive climax in the middle. With the selection dominated by recent material, the first eight numbers are like a sweet ache, as the wistful country of "Ventura" and "Reason to Cry" and the folkish minimalism of "Lonely Girls" explore the fringes of emotional fragility. Then Williams and band flex their musical muscles, shifting into the bluesier side of her artistry on "Change the Locks" and "Atonement," extending the desperate intensity of "Joy" over almost eight minutes, and offering homage to Neil Young's Crazy Horse on "Righteously" and "Essence." Backed by the barbed-wire guitar of Doug Pettitbone over the bare-bones rhythms of bassist Taras Prodaniuk and drummer Jim Christie, Williams tells the crowd, "We got the mojo workin' tonight." --Don McLeese

Most of the great Lucinda songs are on it, and yes it's definitely on the edgy side, especially Lucinda's voice.

This album is not to be missed, not because the songs all sound like the studio versions, but because they do not.
davetvt
Not only does it sound like she is trying too hard in the singing, but it does not have the feel of a live album.

"Car Wheels on A Gravel Road" was a Grammy-winner that introduced millions of new fans (including me) to the brilliant performer Lucinda Williams whose poetic lyrics, memorable tunes and country-rock sound seemed both fresh and timeless, especially to fans of Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Her subsequent albums, however, did not seem to reach her new fan base. The spare but evocative lyrics turned stark and minimal, and the emotions they revealed seemed extremely personal. The music was somewhat the same, but darker, more claustrophic, an accompaniment to the obsessive mood. I liked these albums ("Essence" and "World Without Tears") but if you didn't find them a little disturbing, you really weren't listening.

With "Live @ the Fillmore," Lucinda seems to be breaking all ties to the "Car Wheels" gal, and saying to her fans that this intense, internal, obsessive space is where she's at and where she's staying. This album is not a recap of her career, a greatest hits collection. It is almost completely devoted to the last two albums, and the few earlier songs that she includes either predicted her current direction, or are reinterpreted here in a darker vein than the originals.

Does she sell these songs? I would say yes, completely. They benefit from the greater expressiveness of live performances. Her vocal delivery is even harsher, the incredible steel guitar/electric guitar work of Doug Pettibone is even more expressive, at times sheer metal noise, at other times lonesome sobbing. These songs seem very close to the bone; I almost felt I was a Peeping Tom hearing her bemoan a hit and run lover in "Those Three Days," instruct a too-selfish lover in "Righteously," or paint a dark picture of solitude in "Ventura." This is a full-grown woman in three dimensions, a woman who has not found love to be much more than a momentary release followed by aching disaster. It can be scary. But it is artistically brilliant and satisfying.

Lucinda's rough, boozy voice is the perfect instrument for her poetry of unrequited and obsessive love, loss, sorrow and guilt. Her backup matches the mood of every song - inventive, original and pulsing with electricity and virtuosity.

Like John Prine and Dylan her lyrics tell stories with laser insight. Like Janis Joplin, she turns herself inside out, hurling emotion without restraint. Like Delbert McClinton she integrates her powerful lyrics with musical accompaniment that socks it home. But Lucinda with guitarists Doug Pettibone and Tara Prodanick, Jim Christie on drums, are soul mates, soaring above them all in this rare, raw event.

Lucinda repeats some of the best songs from other albums. But this time, they're not done with the same tenderness. Her voice has become more desperate and ragged. Every cut has an edge. Like a wounded woman, stripped to her soul, alone in a dark room with hard booze in a dirty glass, drinking away the pain. Hurt and melancholy, she shares with us the bitter leftovers of rejection and abandonment.

The first disc of this two disc album starts with "Ventura," The morning after, with nothing but emptiness and regret, she longs for redemption. "I want to be swallowed up in an ocean of love." Hawaiian sound - slide guitar. Sweet, sad, spent.

By "Out of Touch" things heat up. The beat gets more insistent and driving. Hints of rebellion. Guitars on the loose. Then back to melancholy.

"Sweet Side" reveals a deeply compassionate understanding of character.

"Changed the Locks" Fury! Revenge! Opens with a threatening drum beat and guitars grinding, squealing, whining while Lucinda lays it down, her teeth gritted, in a heavy vengeful beat.

A good listen, but in many cases the studio versions of these songs were more satisfying to me. I thought a strange thing was going on with this recording. On one hand, the vocals sometimes didn't show enough restraint and went to some place beyond the rawness that we like from Lucinda. On the other hand, the band showed too much restraint much of the time - they duplicated the studio sound well but didn't really tap into the kind of extra energy that a live show can convey. This dynamic works alright on the more low-key songs that start disc one and finish disc two, but it falls down on the faster/harder songs in the middle of the set.

Lucinda fans will buy it and like it well enough (I did and do), but...

Format: Audio CD
The little blurb by label mate Elvis Costello on the packaging calls Lucinda the closest link we have to Hank Williams recording today. Yes, her honesty as a performer is intense and if each note is not perfect, on a soul level it certainly makes sense. "Ventura" that opens is a slow song where Lucinda's vocals sail peacefully over the lovely melody, "I want to get swallowed up in an ocean of love." "Reason to Cry" is another slow gorgeous melody where Williams' voice seems worn with world-weary worry, "I thought things would stay the same, I thought things were right on, then our sunny days, how could we go wrong?" Lucinda starts to let loose on the emotional belter "Sweet Side" with the talk-sing verses and the wild chorus. The band lets loose on "Changed the Locks" with Lucinda's wild electric lead searing the speakers and her ravaged vocals pouring more power into a lyric than anyone since Janis Joplin, "I changed the kind of car I drive so you can't see me when I go by & you can't chase me in the street & you can't knock me off my feet." Disc 2 must have been re-sequenced since the computer lists the opener as "Essence" rather than her classic "I Lost It." "Pineola," the tale of a suicide, is not the most pleasant of songs, but is ripped to shreds by Lucinda's bloodlust performance that gores the jugular & never lets loose of her grief. Her snarl and vocal fierceness on this track adds new levels to the studio version. Lucinda's electric lead is like an incendiary device in the emotional gasoline of "Righteously," "Be my lover, don't play no games, just play me John Coltrane." "Joy" is another startling assault with the band in crack form and Lucinda's primal vocals violating the musicality to arrive at an apex of desperation.Read more ›
