Victoria Williams's endearingly sweet folk narratives gained a national audience when Pearl Jam had a hit with her "Crazy Mary." The childhood remembrance was the featured track on SWEET RELIEF, an all-star collection compiled to aid Williams when medical bills stemming from her struggle against muscular dystrophy stacked up. From 1994's LOOSE, her first album released post-benefit, it's not hard to tell why even jaded rockers might line up to her rescue. Williams radiates an aura of unconditional love and innocent wonder on a touchingly earnest set of songs about her country neighbors and faithful pups. In her fluttering childlike voice, even a song titled "U R Loved" is cynic-proof. The highlight of the album is clearly Williams's soaring orchestral recording of "Crazy Mary," both simple and thunderous, uplifting and melancholy--a perfect sample of the rich tapestry that is Victoria Williams.
