Eddie Hinton: Cry and Moan (Rounder/Bullseye Blues)

John Morthland, L.A. Weekly, 11 April 1991

CRY AND Moan opens with a shimmering, aching backwoods guitar line that will break normal hearts in two, and then Eddie Hinton turns up the emotion. "I was the one that taught you how to sing," he asserts in a voice full of innocence and experience, "Who showed you the world/And how to kiss the morning rain."
