Lucinda Williams The Ghosts of Highway 20 150g 2LP
150g Vinyl Double LP From Remarkable Singer/Songwriter!
Featuring Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz!
We’ve all heard about the iconic vibe of Route 66, the neon lights on Broadway
and the ocean air of the Pacific Coast Highway. But there are untold stories
emanating from countless blue highways across the land – like Interstate 20,
which cuts a 1500-mile swath from South Carolina to Texas, and cuts deep into
the spirit of those who’ve spent their lives traversing it.
Lucinda Williams is one of those people, and with the expansive, enveloping The
Ghosts of Highway 20, she brings those stories to life – and gives listeners a
remarkably vivid look at how the highway has been a literal and figurative
backdrop throughout her entire life. The intensely involving 14-song collection
may be the most deeply felt, deeply affecting work of Lucinda Williams’
illustrious 35-plus-year career, a career that has been established on a
foundation of remarkably personal songs.
"Lucinda Williams doesn't sound like anybody else, yet she reminds all of us of somebody we know... the star of the of these songs - as always with Williams - is the words. Her lyrics would work as poems or even chapters in a Southern-soaked novel in the Faulkner vein. On song after song, lyrics leap from the speakers, Williams painting pictures of slamming screen doors, scorned lovers, and achingly desolate nights alone." - Karen Bells, The Absolute Sound, 4.5/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sonics.
