Righteous vocals from Mary McCreary recorded here with some equally righteous help from DJ Rogers! Rogers handles production and helps with arrangements on the set and he does a great job of pulling Mary away from some of the more cliched modes of the Shelter label helping her perfectly balance more spiritual roots with smoother 70s soul, in that perfect mix that DJ always hit with his own great records.
This is a @320 vinyl rip of the original Shelter Records LP including covers.
