This Mornin'... favorite Mike McClure has been busy recording music lately. Both for himself and for other bands.
Mike has made available a Boohatch Records Sampler. The disc includes songs from some of his recent productions including: Jessey Thompson, Shut Down Town, Fat Dixie, Willie Stradlin', and Little Ray. Also featured on the set are two songs from Mike himself. The new rocker, Deviants, and a re-imagined Great Divide tune, Nowhere Woman. The decision to re-record this epic tune came after a cry of popular demand in the comments of his always entertaining MySpace blog.

A few weeks ago, Mike stumbled upon a batch of lost copies of his first self-production: The Great Divide & Friends - Dirt & Sprit. This inspiring gospel collection features five songs from Mike (and/or The Great Divide) as well as a few from some other Oklahoma favorites: Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jason Boland, The Red Dirt Rangers, Susan Gibson, and Stoney LaRue.
Those copies look to be sold out now, so sorry for the late heads-up. Here's a couple of the uplifting tunes:
The Great Divide - Angels Over Me
Susan Gibson & Mike McClure - Hung Down Head
