Lucinda Williams - Live in Switzerland 2007

This is another superb live recording of Lucinda Williams , on this occasion in Basel, Switzerland, at the Festsaal Messe, AVO session on the 13th November 2007. Although Lucinda was promoting her 'West' album at the time she covered a range of other earlier material, that for me, seems a great introduction for anyone unfamiliar with one of the foremost modern country rock or alternative country artists.
