HERE at CultureCrash, we’re all dedicated Lucinda Williams fans of long standing. Her new double-disc album, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, is one of country/folk/blues artist’s finest, and includes not just longtime associates like lap steel and mand0lin master Greg Leisz but jazz guitarist Bill Frisell.
In honor of the new record, we present a link to this little filmed intro to one of the album’s songs, “Temporary Nature.”
And here is the whole song itself, the kind of number Otis Redding would have been proud to sing. There are few surprises on this record, but it’s smart, deeply felt, and the rare two-CD set that is strong all the way through.
