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."

Tracks for Lucionda's "Live @ the Fillmore":

Disc one:
"Reason To Cry"
"Fruits of My Labor"
"Out of Touch"
"Sweet Side"
"Lonely Girls"
"Changed the Locks"

Disc two:
"I Lost It"
"Real Live Bleeding Fingers and Broken Guitar Strings"
"Are You Down"
"These Three Days"
"American Dream"

Looks like Ms. Williams has decided to restrict the forum on her website. I'd say coincidence, but after some comments from the San Diego show, and the tomfoolery in Reno two nights later, I'm not surprised. All tickets for the Reno show were refunded after Ms. Williams decided to make the crowd (at $50 and $60 a ticket) wait at least an hour and fifteen minutes after her opening act. The promoter couldn't get her out of the bus to perform. I left, so I don't know when she finally graced the crowd with her presence, but it must have been brutal if the promoter deemed the refund of $30,000 in ticket sales. She played about an hour (according to the ticket agency) just like San Diego and the excuses have worn thin. This seems to be a pattern on this tour, consider it a warning. I've seen her three times before and never encountered this problem. Hopefully they are isolated instances, but I doubt it, and I won't pay to see her again. Good Luck...I worry for the gentleman flying from Winnepeg to Lincoln, NE to see her.

Just saw Lucinda tonight in beautiful Vancouver, Canada at Malcom Bowl. She and her "love band" as she calls it, were incredible. I enjoyed every moment of her concert. The crowd received her well and she gave it her all. I was moved by both her ballads and her more upbeat pieces. And to top it all off, "no pun intended" a majestic bald eagle attending her young, watched from the top of a tree. How perfect is that?

I just saw Lucinda this evening in Boston. It was an AMAZING performance. She was in an incredible mood and made the audience feel at home. She must've played for over 2 hours and I have no words to describe what a fantastic experience it was. The crowd was lucky to experience classics as well as her new work. BEST show I've been to!!!
