Not only is The Ghosts of Highway 20 one of Lucinda Williams’ most conceptually driven efforts, it's also one of her most personal. Utilizing the Deep South highway I-20 as a backdrop, the Louisiana-born artist delivers a moodily honest set of reflections on life, family, and roots.

Throughout, Williams’ gravelly voice is exquisite, especially on the bluesy gumbo groovefest “Faith and Grace.”

With only 400 seats, this will be the best place to hear this new album, thanks Lu for thinking about going to the great club.

Powerful show indeed. Thanks Lu ,PHUKIN' GREAT!

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...
