Editor's note: what? Why? How? I don't get this album at all. Nothing exceptional ever happens. These guys must have been owed some studio time for services rendered as session players seeing as a few went on to distinguished careers as producers, co-writers etc. This album wasn't the highlight. I'd be really interested to hear that this is on somebody's favorite list.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
