"Lucinda Williams" sees light of day after 10 years
Tuesday, November 19, 2013
– "Lucinda Williams," the self-titled 1988 album from the three-time Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter, will see a special 25th Anniversary reissue with bonus features on Jan. 14 via her new independent label in conjunction with Thirty Tigers.

The expanded booklet will include never before seen photos and two new sets of liner notes: one written by Rough Trade A&R man Robin Hurley and a second set written by U.S. music writer Chris Morris.
The bonus track listing is:
Live From Eindhoven, Netherlands - May 19, 1989

As impressive as her last album "Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone" was, this much is true about Lucinda Williams: the next album will be as stellar or even more. That's not to say any of her releases are subpar, but the quality (and now consistency) of her output makes her a precious gem.
