“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

YO A BEWDY WILLIAMS

Get in here to buy Lucinda Williams' new work. This is an important recorded work. Like a very seriously good important work that will become more famous as we all die of too much or too little. Work. It's a seriously good piece of work. I keep thinking Danny Whitten might walk in but that'd be really silly. Lucinda put up a fight tonight, playin me this without anybody walking in.

Great music, great performance! I've been listening to it non stop for at least three days!

I hope many DRINKSTERs reward her amazing generosity with purchases. I do think it is a recording that will outlive most of us.
