Sweet Old World

Genre: Blues, Folk; Lead Performer: Lucinda Williams; Producer (group): Chameleon, Elektra

A gifted singer-songwriter whose stark portraits of people on the edge are long on empathy and short on sentimentality, Williams also knows her way around a barroom blues: If you can keep your cool during her sexy yodel on the appropriately titled ”Hot Blood” on Sweet Old World, you should probably have your pulse checked.
