This is the first international release of The Mary Stokes Band’s seminal live album ‘Clouds In My Heart’, originally recorded just before Christmas 1999.
It was possibly the last Blues record of the 20th Century and definitely one of the first of the New Millennium.
The popular success of our “as live” album “Comin’ Home” (2020) inspired us to relaunch the fully live “Clouds In My Heart” to a broader audience.
Recorded in a landmark Dublin pub, this album captures the live energy and vitality for which The Mary Stokes Band are so widely known.
This is the first time this album has been available other than at The Mary Stokes Band’s live shows.
Recorded Live in Bruxelles Pub, December 12 1999.
