LUCINDA WILLIAMS – THIS SWEET OLD WORLD 25TH B’DAY RERELEASE

Here, Lucinda reimagines her 1992 classic, Sweet Old World in a re-recording which includes fresh arrangments, additional lyrics and bonus tracks.

3rd track on the 1992 version of Sweet Old World, ‘He Never Got Enough Love’ is transformed with additional verses, new sound and new title, ‘Drivin’ Down A Dead End Street’, which was the song’s original title.

The arrangements are tighter and rawer than the original and feature Williams’ fantastic touring/studio band: guitarist Stuart Mathis, bassist David Sutton, and drummer Butch Norton. Guitarist Greg Leisz, who actually participated in the early sessions for the 1992 album, adds his masterful playing to the new recordings. If re-recording an entire studio album was not already an unprecedented move, Williams and company chose to re-record the four tracks that were not included on the original release. This Sweet Old World features new versions of ‘Factory Blues,’ ‘Dark Side of Life’, John Anderson’s ‘Wild and Blue’ and the John Leventhal/Jim Lauderdale penned ‘What You Don’t Know’.
