"Cry Cry" was the feature single from Oysterband's Holy Bandits album. However, Oysterband is not a singles-oriented group, having never relied on the strength of any one song to boost its career, so it's curious that Rykodisc saw fit to release this four-song single. It's a good thing, though, as the three additional songs here -- "After London," "Star of the County Down," and "Curragh of Kildare" -- are quality cuts not heard on any other Oysterband album. Unfortunately, it's doubtful that enough independently minded radio music programmers selected any of those three tracks (or "Cry Cry" for that matter) to grace their "picks" or "up-and-comers" rotations to make a noticeable impression about either the record label or the band. ~ Dave Sleger
