Lucinda Williams had a very special guest last night during her spectacular London show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire: «Mr. Bruce Springsteen». He came onstage for the last couple songs and played electric guitar in the old delta blues «Disgusted», by Lil’ Son Jackson, and the closing number: an extended, electrifying «Joy», with great guitar solos by Bruce. Lucinda introduced Springsteen several times, and look visibly thrilled.
As her only encore, Lucinda played «West», the title track from her forthcoming album (to be released in February 2007). The whole show was incredible, with a fantastic band and very inspired performances of Lucinda’s best songs.
