Happy Woman Blues Review

by Kurt Wolff

Lucinda Williams' first collection of original material -- recorded with a full band -- is stunning for its mixture of blues, folk, and country traditions with her captivating, complex, and visceral approach to writing and singing. Songs like "Lafayette," "King of Hearts," and "Sharp Cutting Wings" are classics: structurally solid and emotionally intense. A gutsy, refreshingly rootsy album.
