Editors’ Notes

Lucinda Williams's first concert album may come as a shock those who know her only in twangy singer/songwriter mode. Recorded over a three-night stretch, the double-album Live at the Fillmore mines the dark, confessional vein of her last two studio albums with a sound that's more dirtied-up rock-and-roll than elegiac country. Her raw ache of a voice is at its most ragged here; she rasps and growls like Patti Smith and emotes like Janis Joplin against the rough-edged backing of a Crazy Horse-like band. The result may not endear her to new fans, but it's as intimate and intense as anything this most vulnerable of performers has recorded. Even the offbeat sequencing succeeds on its own terms: Fillmore starts with a whimper, not a bang, featuring almost a full album's worth of druggy, downbeat ballads. She shifts gears with a hard-rocking take on 1988's "Change the Locks," and doesn't let up the pace until the last three songs, by which time even a congenital downer like "World Without Tears" sounds almost redemptive after the emotional catharsis that's gone before.

Customer Reviews

Umm... Actually "Live at Fillmore" is phenomenal

I disagree with every single word of the previous post. "Live at Fillmore" is Lucinda at her absolute best. Rough, real, intense, spectacular. I can see how it might be hard to go from her highly polished studio albums to this live recording, but if it's the emotional honesty and musicianship that you listen to Lucinda for, then this album is for you. If it's the catchy lyrics and hum-along thing, then stick to "Car Wheels." They're both great albums to be sure, but it's on THIS album that the musicians really have the time to stretch and Lucinda lets it all hang out, warts and all.

Unbelievably great show!

I was at the Fillmore all three nights this was recorded and I have never seen an artist so in control of their show as Lucinda Williams. She had the audience mezmerized from the moment she hit the stage to the last chord she played on each and every night. She, like her father, poet Miller Williams, is a national treasure! I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing her again and again. I am also very pleased that this EP has been released with cuts not on the original release.

Great songs, great performance

So I just saw Lucinda live during her 2014 tour. I came back here to buy some more songs and found this EP live version that I didn’t know existed. It’s great singing, lyrics and music. Fully recommend seeing her live if you get the chance. It’s great show.

The object of cultish adoration for years, singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams was universally hailed as a major talent by both critics and fellow musicians, but it took quite some time for her to parlay that respect into a measure of attention from the general public. Part of the reason was her legendary perfectionism: Williams released records only infrequently, often taking years to hone both the material and the recordings thereof. Plus, her early catalog was issued on smaller labels that agreed...
