Even though six of the seven tunes here are covers, The Love I Have For You is still a highly coveted acquisition. "Each song," Tess liners, "holds special meaning not only to the band, but American music as a whole." Cool. I get it. But the neat trick, and a routine trait for this inspired crew, is that they all come off sounding like Miss T originals and that's a hell of a lot of fun.

Rolling high from the riotous yet pop-concise swing of Ted Hawkins' enabler's lament Sorry You're Sick to the Patsy Cline jukebox heartbreak of the sole original and title tune, T & t T dance us through late night shuffles and waltzes, all of which will have you tapping replay, especially Willie's Night Life, Randy's Bet No One Ever Hurt This Bad and Bonnie Raitt's earth mama sassy Give It Up or Let Me Go. These guys—Miss T, Will Graefe, Larry Cook, and Matt Meyer make it all sound so easy, which makes it that much more fun.

Track List:

  • Sorrow Your Sick
  • The Love I Have For You
  • The Alabama Waltz
  • Night Life
  • Bet No One Ever Hurt This Bad
  • Give It Up or Let Me Go
  • Hold Back The Tears
Produced by Miss Tess & The Talkbacks
