Lu’s Jukebox is a six-volume series of mostly full-band performances recorded live at Ray Kennedy’s Room & Board Studio in Nashville, TN. Each volume features a themed set of songs by other artists curated by the multi-Grammy award winner, this one features 60’s country classics!

She’s made some brilliant selections in the form of ‘Make the World Go Away’ and ‘Gentle on My Mind’ and makes them her own with her laid-back vocal style yet has stayed true to the original instrumentation of that era with the use of pedal steel. The stand-out track comes in the form of Buck Owens ‘Together Again’ there is a frailty within her voice as she fills her delivery with emotion. 

It’s another strong record in this series which has been an interesting and exciting project from Williams.
