From the small town of Palatka, FL comes this gentle piece of soul full of regret and loss. Simple in its construction and instrumentation Crying Won't Help Me Now has a lot of lovely touches from the splendid guitarist's licks to the male chorus and the pumped piano. But surely the best part is Delorise's rather "little girl" style of singing which goes so well with the mood of the song. Yes she may be hurting now but it clearly won't last for ever. No wonder it got a second chance on Cotillion.
This Gator label doesn't seem to have any relationship with its more famous namesake on the West Coast.
