The magnificent Mary Gauthier, ladies and gentlemen. My god, this is sweet. I could rave about Gauthier’s exquisite vocal delivery on this original penned by her, for an hour, but that wouldn’t leave time to gush over the playful fiddle arrangement, heart-melting trombone leads, sublime keyboard accompaniment, or the slitheringly sexy rhythm section. Think Johnny Cash’s long lost sister goes to New Orleans. An absolute joy.
