  1. This album is the major label debut by Mary Cutrufello, the Telecaster Lady. She is a really great songwriter who writes deeply moving story songs. I got this album after having read a review of it in a magazine at the time it came out. Never regretted it, despite Jim Keltner just playing on one song, "Sweet Promise Of Love".

    After the Polygram-Seagram-Universal merger, Cutrufello got dropped from her label, like so many other artists, too. Since then, she has released several more recordings as an independent artist, most notably the acoustic album "Songs From the 6" which she recorded on her own in a motel room, the rock album "35" which is even better than this one, and the country music EP "Fireflies Till They're Gone" which she sells as CD at shows (and if you ask kindly per email - otherwise it's mp3 only.)

    I understand Mary's music may not be everybody's cup of tea, though, because of her rather deep singing voice which most people I played her music to have mistaken for that of a man.
