Michelle Shocked

Back in the late 80s, the wife and I were newly married and living in Houston. Life was all about Rice University and the Art Institute and good food and friends. We went to many concerts in those days and it was at a Billy Bragg concert (I think) in that place that used to be bank, that we first saw Michelle Shocked. We had never heard of her before she opened in that show and she was remarkable. We rushed over to the Soundwaves near Shepherd and the 59 and bought the CD (which I still have). This song takes me straight back to those days.

I saw her again last year and she still puts on a wonderful show.
