Kendrick’s Essential Albums ( In his head anyway) #3 Murray Attaway- In Thrall (1993)

Part of an 3 for $20 bin find in 1997 (sometimes that how you find the classics…and some shit)

Murray Attaway is an American musician, best known as the lead singer and guitarist for the Marietta, Georgia jangle pop band Guadalcanal Diary.

It featured the following musicians on it:

Jackson Browne, Aimee Mann, Benmont Tench, Steve Nieve, Jim Keltner and Nicky Hopkins on piano.

To date he has only released the one solo album, but there is a rumour to be another self release on its way.

I always find it strange that a album packed with some many great songs, and songs that are different to each other, seems to sink with no trace. A lot of time it is how it is marketed by the Record Label, and as it a pop record it was released at the high of the grunge era.

Here is hoping for a reissue of it.
