New music isn't everything

Taking a break from being sniffy about 2014's new releases, I'm knocked out by the first vinyl outing for Lucinda Williams' 1998 classic Car Wheels On A Gravel Road.

I find I don't make enough time regularly to listen to the really great records. And this one definitely is great. Strong songs, spot-on arrangements and sympathetic playing, and Lucinda in consistently wonderful voice.

I could single out virtually any of the songs on it, but take a listen to the spare lyricism and lazy erotic charge of the opener, 'Right In Time'.

Well done to Music On Vinyl for a clear and solid pressing: every home should have one.
