Pretty slow day for album releases. The best of the lot are from Lucinda Williams and Van Morrison.
Lucinda Williams – “West” General consensus is that, her new album is pretty darn good. I could provide a long list of other reviews, but they all pretty much say the same thing. Best album of her career, great songwriter, great singer, blah, blah, blah.
Van Morrison – “At the Movies: Soundtrack Hits” It’s really nothing more than yet, another Van Morrison “Greatest Hits” type collection. But dang, does he have some darn great hits. Still there’s nothing hear that hasn’t been already released.
Dr. John – “In the Night: The Early Sessions of Dr. John” Weird, but there isn’t much out there on this release. I woulda thought there’d be something, but hardly any reviews or information at the online retailers as well.
Wow, pretty lame day for new releases. Anyway, if you’re like me and Lucinda Williams only slightly floats your boat try her with a helping of Flogging Molly.
