Lucinda Williams Offers Live CDs at Special Concerts

Those attending Lucinda Williams’ upcoming concerts in Los Angeles and New York will be able to purchase CD copies of each performance and leave with it that same evening. Williams previously announced plans to perform five of her previously-released albums in their entirety, one album per night, in the two cities. She begins in Los Angeles in early September at the El Rey Theater before traveling to New York for two shows in late September at Irving Plaza and three additional concerts in early October at Town Hall. The albums she has chosen to perform include her self-titled project from 1988 and Sweet Old World, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, Essence and World Without Tears. The CDs will apparently be a limited edition, and no plans are underway to make the recordings available elsewhere. Williams’ record label, Lost Highway, is not involved in the recording or distribution of the discs.
