Sing Out! Magazine
On her third album since leaving Spirit of the West, Linda McRae applies relatively modern, occasionally rock-tinged, arrangements to fine original songs steeped in bluegrass and old-time country traditions. In other words, this is the kind of record that mainstream Nashville would be making if it still knew how to creatively update the traditions at the heart of country music. McRae rounds out her own songs with a nice version of “The L&N Don’t Stop Here Anymore,” Jean Ritchie’s classic coal country lament.
