This Sweet Old World (Highway 20 Records)
Lucinda Williams had a one-word response when her husband and manager Tom Overby suggested that she re-record her 1992 album Sweet Old World: “Really?” Although Williams has consistently performed a few songs from the album over the years in concert, including the title track and “Pineola,” she felt that she had outgrown most of the others and was reluctant to revisit it. That was until she listened to the songs with fresh ears.”After we got in the recording studio and we got going, I got really pumped up about it,” says Williams, who re-recorded the album in 10 days with her touring and studio band – guitarist Stuart Mathis, bassist David Sutton and drummer Butch Norton – and longtime friend and collaborator, legendary steel-guitar player Greg Leisz, who actually participated in the early sessions for the original LP.
