Cryin' Out Loud
Produced by Gurf Morlix - Black Hen Music
Emmet Matheson, No Depression - The way McRae delivers the hard-knock facts of life smacks more of deliverance from, rather than resignation to, disappointment. Hoot and Holler is as close as alt/country gets to Peggy Lee. McRae's warmly powerful voice is the bedrock of this album.
