STREET,JOYCE - TIED DOWN[MISSISSIPPI MOONSHINE CLEAR VINYL]
A '70s homemaker stuck between the studio
and a getting dinner on the table, Joyce
Street eked out an arresting countrypolitan
discography in the margins of an otherwise
traditional American life. With lyrics drawn
from the pages of her diary, Street's stirring
Mississippi warble led her into the fly-by-
night world of custom studios, cutting tracks
for upstart country concerns like Reena,
Sonobeat, Revelation, and Arc. Channeling
the honky tonk angel energy of Bobbie
Gentry, Lorretta Lynn, and Jeannie C.
compiles a decade's worth
of melodies disguised as lottery tickets.
