Second Studio Album Reissued On Vinyl LP!

Lucinda Williams, whose musical style defies easy categorization, recorded her first album of original songs in 1980, supported by a six-member band. Her songs are a mix of traditional and alternative country, folk, and blues that reflect her Louisiana roots. The Village Voice music critic Robert Christgau gave Happy Woman Blues an "A–" and described Williams as a "guileless throwback to the days of the acoustic blues mamas" who "means what she says and says what she means."

The vinyl reissue of Happy Woman Blues, which includes a liner notes booklet with the song lyrics, is part of the Smithsonian Folkways Vinyl Reissue Series, revisiting some of the most iconic and influential albums in their collection.

"Lucinda Williams' first collection of original material -- recorded with a full band -- is stunning for its mixture of blues, folk, and country traditions with her captivating, complex, and visceral approach to writing and singing. Songs like 'Lafayette,' 'King of Hearts,' and 'Sharp Cutting Wings' are classics: structurally solid and emotionally intense. A gutsy, refreshingly rootsy album." - AllMusic
