Lone Justice arrived from LA
in the mid 1980s and blew me away. Vocalist Maria McKee is probably my all time favourite female voice although there are not many that I like.
Is it country? Is it rock? It’s both with a mass of other musical influences thrown in.
1 Sweet Sweet Baby (album 1)
2 Ways to Be Wicked (album 1) Co written by Tom Petty who’s indluence is all over Lone Justice
3 Reflected (album 2)
4 I Found Love (album 2) both of these have gospel choir tones
5 Wheels (album 2) a rare slow one for me
The second album was produced by the E Street Band’s very own Steven Van Zandt and I love the big Springsteen-esque sound of it.
Maria McKee of course went on as a solo artist after the band disbanded most totally with ‘Show Me Heaven’ and also writing ‘A Good Heart’ for Feargal Sharkey.
