Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
For more than a decade before her recent turn in the spotlight, Lucinda Williams was known as a musicians' musician, a vastly talented yet obscure writer and performer from the Deep South who played folk blues and penned unique portraits of the people and emotions of her homeplace. Since its release in 1988, the tunes she wrote for this eponymous disc have become country chart toppers for Patty Loveless "The Night's Too Long", Mary Chapin Carpenter "Passionate Kisses", and Emmylou Harris "Crescent City", and acclaimed folk/blues songstress Mollie O'Brien chose "Big Red Sun" for the title cut of her award-winning 1998 disc.

If that's not enticement enough, this rerelease goes one -- make that six -- better, with a sextet of bonus tracks that showcases Williams's relaxed style as a live performer and liner notes which include her comments on the songs and their cover versions.
All Music Guide - Vik Iyengar
Lucinda Williams took eight years to write and record her second album of original songs. While some producers and record executives have said that she is difficult to work with, one can never argue with the finished product. She crafts each song meticulously and deftly blends country, blues, and folk to create a unique sound that cannot be pigeonholed into any particular format. Her voice contains a heartache comparable to Emmylou Harris, but she has a darker side and a toughness that allows her to live inside the blues or rock with abandon. Re-released with bonus tracks after receiving long overdue commercial acclaim for Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, Lucinda Williams is an album that has been long been recognized as a classic. It has been mined for hit songs over the years by such artists as Mary Chapin Carpenter, who turned "Passionate Kisses" into a country hit, and Tom Petty, who included "Changed the Locks" on his soundtrack album She's the One. In addition to writing strong melodies, Williams is an amazing songwriter with a knack for writing a lyric that acknowledges the complicated nature of relationships while cutting right to the heart of the matter. Every song packs an emotional punch line and rewards the listener each time with something new. A must-own for country and blues fans who appreciate great songwriting.

    Lucinda's Peak

    The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is the acoustic bonus material. Four and 1/2 seems to be a fair rating. This CD shows Williams before she bought into the idea that her songs had to reflect pain and loss most of the time. Several of these numbers became hits in cover versions. By about 2000 much of the joy seemed to leave her songs. For that reason I think this set or Gravel Road are the best places to start.

    buy it

    I first listened to car wheels on a gravel road .i was impressed to say the least. So I then bought the self titled album. and I cant stop listening to it. The song lyrics are so well written like shes in your kitchen telling you a story.And her voice is so real not like some vh1 diva superstar but like someone who really has something to say.Im probably going to have to buy all her albums now. this record really turned me into a fan
