lost soon to be classic,
This review is from: Jukebox Sparrows (Audio CD)
Shannon McNally made a record that was cruelly ignored by the head honchos at her record company and by the fickle taste-makers of the US media. Nonetheless this is a wonderful rock and soul record, fuelled by a fantastic rhythm section and lyrics which would not have seemed out of place on Fleetwood Mac's Rumours. Yes it's a little slick in places and like so many albums overly long. But Bitter Blue is a masterpiece of simmering longing and with Down and Dirty makes a pair of sensual songs depicting a woman managing her desire in song.
