New Deluxe Edition of Car Wheels on a Gravel Road out

Last Tuesday a new Deluxe Edition of the Grammy winning Car Wheels on a Gravel Road by Lucinda Williams was released. The Deluxe Edition takes the album and adds some bonus tracks from the original session work in Nashville with Steve Earle at the helm, and adds a second disc with a live concert that was originally taped for WXPN in 1998. Bo Ramsey lends his guitar work to this album and is also part of the backing band on the live disc. Most of the reviews I read make it sound like the bonus material really just illustrates that those were songs best left off of the album and that the live disc sounds good but the band sounds uncomfortable with the then-new material. I hadn’t bought the original release of Car Wheels, so I may pick this one up.
