Lucinda Williams on Tracks Magazine Cover
Lucinda Williams is featured on the cover of this month's Tracks Magazine.
In an interview by Alan Light, Lucinda comments:
"I'm always looking to move forward and sometimes looking back is what allows you to look ahead."
From publishers' blurb on the issue:
Williams has spent most of the last year looking back. Looking back at the recordings from her 2003 tour that eventually resulted in her new album, Live at the Fillmore. Looking back in the most personal way following the death of her mother last March.
Looking back at some of her earliest efforts at songwriting, attempting to rekindle some of the "innocence and purity" she worries has been lost in her work.
Speaking of live albums, Lucinda considers Neil Young's "Rust Never Sleeps" and "Year Of The Horse" among her favorites.
From a Billboard report on the upcoming "Live @ the Fillmore", which was recorded on three nights in San Francisco in 2003, and will be released May 10. The album has boasts 22 tracks, along with a DVD. The DVD, "Live From Austin, TX," is from PBS' "Austin City Limits."
