Me and Maria McKee

Ah, remember the 1980s when people thought rootsy bands could take over the world. Well, at least sell a bunch of records. I still remember how much hype Lone Justice got, in part because of their great live shows. Their two albums didn't quite live up to the hype, though (imho) Maria McKee's first two solo albums certainly did. They still didn't sell too many copies, but at least the Dixie Chicks made her some money by covering "Am I The Only One". So here's a comp of McKee's early solo work and her days with Lone Justice. (And yes, I know the title of the comp is kinda lame, but oh well. :)

An absolutely fantastic talent and one who's always deserved far more success and recognition than she's got.
