#73 LUCINDA WILLIAMS - Bowery Ballroom, New York (Flac)

This tour was the first chance I got to see Lucinda, as previously it had been more than ten years since she had played in the UK. There had been no live appearances for the Car Wheel s On A Gravel Road album on this side of the Atlantic. It had been a long wait but the World Without Tears tour was well worth it, Lucinda's guitarist Doug Pettibone was spectacular on guitar. He left to pursue a solo career some years ago but is now back playing with Lucinda and her band, so if you get the chance near you to attend a live show take it and don't miss out. (editor's note, Lucinda now has a different band)

There are many quality Lu shows but this one with perfect sound quality and her superb band make it my favourite.The same line up would play later in the year and be recorded and released on the official two disc set Live At Fillmore, it's a live cd well worth the purchase.
