Michelle Shocked was recorded in 1986 around a campfire in Kerrville, Texas. The occasion was the Kerrville Folk Festival, and the recording device was a Sony Walkman. Despite the lackluster equipment, Shocked's spiky, playful personality comes through in spades here, as does the astonishing assuredness of her singing. I like this album tho because myself and my cousin are there on the tapes applauding and whooping at the end of many of the songs. 6 people found this helpful.
