Imagine 17 year old me, rushing to the record store on the day that Maria McKee released her first solo album.
Yes, this is what I was listening to as a teenager. And that album was really the third Lone Justice album - with a lot of the same personnel. I was a huge Lone Justice fan (still am). So, I had high expectations of this, and it did not let me down. The first two songs were a heck of a one-two punch. This was the 2nd single and 2nd track. It was a slower, but beautiful and emotion-filled song.
But that first track - I think I wore my cassette out on this track. It was the powerhouse vocal I had come to expect from Maria McKee. There is no video for this song that I could find, but I couldn't not share it, because it's spectacular - right from the first guitar that predated "Laid" by James by several years. The song just builds and builds, and showcases McKee's vocal range throughout.
