Lucinda Williams Readies Live Album

A long-expected live album from Lucinda Williams will finally see the light of day next month, as will a separate DVD. Recorded across three nights in San Francisco in 2003, the “Live @ the Fillmore” audio project boasts 22 tracks, each selected by the artist. The DVD, “Live From Austin, TX,” stems from PBS’ “Austin City Limits.”

The “Fillmore” set will be released May 10 via Lost Highway in a two-CD and a three-disc vinyl package, according to the artist’s official Web site. Among the highlights are such favorites as “Changed the Locks,” “Essence,” “I Lost It,” “Essence” and “Pineola.” Accompanying Williams on stage were Doug Pettibone (guitar/pedal steel/vocals), Taras Prodaniuk (bass) and Jim Christie (drums).

The same day, New West Records will release the DVD, which continues the label’s ongoing “Live in Austin, TX” series, which plucks episodes of the long-running performance show that originates from Austin PBS affiliate KLRU. Williams taped episodes of the show in 1990 and 1998; at deadline it was unknown if the disc features just one appearance or culls from both.

In addition to Williams’ “Austin” title, New West is also readying “Austin City Limits” performances by Richard Thompson and Son Volt to join previously issued DVDs from the Flatlanders, Robert Earl Keen, Susan Tedeschi and Steve Earle.
