As Richard Thompson is England's greatest "unsung" talent, so Maria McKee has to be the US equivalent. Known by the vast majority of people solely for her "Show Me Heaven" worldwide smash years ago, its a crying shame that the rest of her recordings have been largely ignored. Maria is blessed with a voice to die for, and on the evidence of this CD a band to die for also. After listening to her pouring so much emotion and passion into the 10 songs included here you wonder why she is not more of a household name. I have never had the good fortune to see Maria live but this CD is the next best thing. Buy it and enjoy the experience, and if you get a chance to, go and see her perform.
