I was very perplexed by Lucinda Williams voice on her new record. She sounded ROUGH. Really rough. She's always had a husky voice, but this was different. She just sounded scraggly. What's up with that?
Last weekend, Elizabeth gave me a mix cd of dance and pop tunes that I love. I learned about Gnarls Barkley and Wet Willie. I also heard a version of "Temptation" that I did not know existed sung by Johnny and June Carter Cash. I loved it... they sounded like granddad and grandmom. But I still love the Red Ingle version more. It features the vocals of Jo Stafford who had to work hard to develop a humorous hillbilly voice for this track. It worked for me.
