Here’s the last $1 disc (in pristine shape, too!) that I found in Taranna while there with my lovely wife…
The Racy Lacy Anniversary Series, Part 16 (CD, $1)
Victoria Williams’ voice is a nuanced, odd thing that takes some getting used to. But once you do, you’re hooked. Her lyrics are where the real meat is, often quirky looks at simple things like nature and the things around her, but all told lovingly and beautifully.
This live set, recorded in Toronto, is gentle, jazzy, soulful, and absolutely real. The band backs her ably, and you’d be hard-pressed to find another live record of this kind that’s so superb.
