Lucinda Williams and Elvis Costello hardly qualify as mainstream country artists, but each has absorbed traditional Southern music, written country songs and had a long affinity with Nashville. The stars of the debut episode sing two duets, Costello's "Poisoned Rose" and a fiery version of Williams' "Changed the Locks." They provide backing vocals for each other on four songs -- including a Rolling Stones cover -- and Williams' road band plays throughout.Williams, a native of Louisiana who lived in Nashville for several years, is an outsider on Music Row and mainstream country radio. However, she commands the highest respect in roots and rock music circles, and a handful of country artists have recorded her songs. Emmylou Harris has long championed Williams, recording "Crescent City" and "Sweet Old World." Mary Chapin Carpenter recorded "Passionate Kisses," earning Williams a Grammy for best country song in 1993. As a recording artist, Williams won the Grammy for best contemporary folk album for 1998's Car Wheels on a Gravel Road. Upon the album's release, Rolling Stone called Williams "America's greatest songwriter" and described Car Wheels on a Gravel Road as a "masterpiece" and "heartbroken country classic."Based in Ireland by way of England, Costello emerged as a chief songwriting voice of the late '70s punk and new wave explosion. He quickly shed that tag, though, and evolved into a songwriting icon in the pop field. He is revered as one of the most innovative and influential songwriters since Bob Dylan.In 1981, Costello recorded Almost Blue in Nashville with legendary country producer Billy Sherrill. The album features Costello interpreting songs by Hank Williams, Don Gibson, Gram Parsons, Charlie Rich and other country greats. His version of George Jones' "Good Year for the Roses," from the same album, was a hit record in England.

I saw your plea for comments, so I thought I would comment. You have obviously earned some love for your efforts.

1. Great blog. So awesome to collect such great stuff that I can't buy (like this one). What I can buy, I buy -- I don't download it. But they don't sell this disc. So you are the best for making it available.

2. With respect to these tracks in particular -- WOW. I mean, we all know Elvis Is King. And Lucinda has a good claim on being The Queen. Together? WOW.

Again thanks. And, if track 2 ever shows up, please let us know. ;)

Thanks for the love... I don't think there is a track 2. I believe I just numbered them incorrectly. Thanks for stopping by and making some remarks.

Thanks for sharing this. I found cover art and track listing for the show and CMT broadcast on an Elvis Costello site (http://www.elviscostello.info/disc/bootlegs/costello_02.php)

The missing track 2 with Lucinda appears to be "Drunken Angel". Elvis appears to have done 4 other tracks solo.

WVKayaker said...

That's probably the whole show and not the broadcast. Would like to get the whole thing for sure.
Thanks

WVKayaker said...

This got me to thinking, why would I be missing a track, so I dug out the CD and discovered for whatever reason, track 2 really was missing, so here is the whole thing reupped [MP3@320]

It's simply marvelous Devant. Enjoy!

Thelma said...

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but if it was at all possible and not too inconvenient, could you repost this in lossless? Either way, it's too good to pass up, and thank you so much for sharing it in the first place!

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
