Cryin' Holy PREV Unreleased (Featured APD track)
“Cryin' Holy” was the only lead vocal by Ricky Skaggs on 0044. On the LP and CD, the quartet consisted of Rice, Skaggs, Crowe and the band’s manager at the time Hugh Sturgill. Emmylou Harris was in the studio at the time and recorded a high baritone part, but her part wasn’t used when there seemed to be a pitch issue. Years later, when listening back to the tapes, JD and engineer Steve Chandler took Sturgill’s vocal off and replaced it with Emmylou’s and it sounded great. This is the new mix with Emmylou singing the high part. This version was never released to radio. - Ken Irwin, Rounder Records
