Picks and Pans Review: Alone Too Long
A nominee for the Academy of Country Music Award as best new female singer of 1978, McClain, 23, is not likely to revolutionize popular music. But she is a consistent, entertaining performer of the Anne Murray-Crystal Gayle school, right on the border between pop and C&W. Here she admirably handles mainstream standards like Bread's Baby I'm a Want You and Mel Carter's Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me and does equally well by the contemporary country torch tune I've Been Alone Too Long and Kim Carnes' bittersweet ballad You're a Part of Me. Anyone who enjoyed McClain's previous albums won't be disappointed by this one.
