As part of an ongoing effort to expose some of the best local talent of the area, KDKB radio released multiple volumes of "Arizona Sounds" in the late seventies, each representing a broad cross-section of the music of the state, "from the serene tranquility of the countryside to the brash urbanity of the cities".

Barbara Hinck appeared on the second volume, released in 1978. I couldn't dig up much information about her beyond what's on the back of the record -- she sang back-up for groups in Minneapolis and played clubs around Phoenix. This original composition was recorded at Hilltop Studio in Nashville, Tennessee.
