Editor's note: a bit crackle-y, 'tis it not? All the better say the old-timers who used to sit by the voice box and listen to the crackle of war, wine-worn music and reality by the fireplace when there was nothing left of the day. Imagine that while you warm yourself with a space heater, a Snuggie and a spicy can of Red Bull.
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!
