Lost and Found (Song): Maria McKee - My Lonely Sad Eyes

I haven't done one of these in a while, and I kind of rediscovered this song on an old mixtape someone gave me years ago.

Despite the deluge of 90s nostalgia, there's a lot of great music from that era getting passed over because it doesn't fit the current narrative. Alt-country got a boost from the acceptance of less "mainstream" styles of rock, but mostly remained criminally underappreciated by the masses. Maria McKee, founder singer of the band, Lone Justice, started her solo career in the late 80s. This Van Morrison cover is from her 1993 album, You Gotta Sin To Get Saved.
