i am impressed. i swear, i thought i was the only appreciator of ms lucinda williams. she should be spoken of in the same breath as dylan or lennon. only her peers and critics seem to know who she is. nicely done.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.

I'm with you all the way on this one!! I really like a lot of her later albums too, but that early run of 4 original material albums sits up there with anyone else's best runs that I can think of. She is just astounding, as a singer, songwriter, performer...etc., etc. ...great stuff. Blessings!!
Om Namah Shivaya !!!!
