Amsterdam 2023 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Paradiso, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; January 19, 2023. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to Dennis Orr (mastering) and scdegraaf for sharing the show at Dime.

scdegraaf noted:

I have seen Lucinda many times; this was one of the best shows, if not the best. Fortunately Lu’s voice has not been affected by her stroke, although she can’t play guitar yet, but who’s complaining with Stuart and Doug doing some great guitar battles.

When Lu entered the stage I was a bit shocked: she had to be helped to her place on stage and couldn’t move away from it, but once she started singing I got used to it. She was very talkative and enjoyed the show visibly, as did the whole band. The love she got from the audience must be a great medicine. At 69 she still rocks!!!

In April 2020, Lucinda Williams released her 14th studio album, Good Souls Better Angels. In American Songwriter, Hal Horowitz gave the release 4.5 out of five stars, writing that it is arguably her most intense album, ending his review: “By the end of the hour, you’ll be wiped out. This is a devastatingly in your face, take no prisoners presentation from Williams and her band that will leave most serious listeners shattered and perhaps shaking. Few albums connect with this much pure emotional fury, let alone those from artists well into their 60s.”

On November 17, 2020, Williams had a stroke in her home in Nashville. Doctors discovered a blood clot, and she was discharged five weeks later. Though at the time she needed to walk with a cane and still could not play guitar, she subsequently recovered in time for her summer 2021 tour with Jason Isbell. - wikipedia
