Evie Sands has had a fascinating career in which there were far too many near misses, mostly due to competing versions of the same songs by other artists released at the same time. However, her records have grown legendary throughout the years, and for good reason! Evie is still out there performing; she was a true pioneer in that she's not only an incredible vocalist but also a highly skilled guitarist.
Transcendent is the only way to describe this one. A masterpiece in production (reminds me of what a Brian Wilson/ Phil Spector/ Motown collaboration would sound like), this song is infectious and jaw dropping. Quite possibly the best fake out ending on record, too.
