Nashville, TN – Lucinda Williams, the acclaimed self-titled 1988 album for the three-time Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter will be reissued as a special 25th Anniversary edition with bonus features on January 14 via her new independent label in conjunction with Thirty Tigers.
Often referred to as ‘The Rough Trade’ album (the UK label that originally released it), Lucinda Williams has been out of print for 10 years. The new package will include a remastered version from the original master recordings, which had been missing for over 20 years.
The package will feature a bonus disc containing an unreleased 1989 live concert recorded in Eindhoven, Netherlands and six previously released live bonus tracks. 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 respected US music writer Chris Morris.
Lucinda Williams was the artist’s second album of original songs. Major artists have covered some of its songs: Grammy Award-winning ‘Passionate Kisses’ (1994 Country Song Of The Year) was a hit for Mary Chapin Carpenter in 1993, in 1983 Emmylou Harris recorded ‘Crescent City’ and in 1996 Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers recorded ‘Changed The Locks.’
Williams played the album in its entirety during the Americana Festival in Nashville in September. A new Lucinda Williams studio album will be released mid-2014.
