Tired And Emotional, the debut from Mary Coughlan is a lot of fun that draws on folk, jazz and blues music, reportedly recorded in Galway in about two days. The opening Double Cross is an accordion led ballad of a cheating man and a broken hearted woman, the The Beach with it's barking saxophone and thumping double bass conjures up images of The Girl From Ipanema, it's simple, catchy and Coughlan's voice is commanding and strong. The album closes with Seduced which feature Coughlan's vocal only accompanied with a rubbery, growling double bass. It's an album miles away from international pop but it's the work of a singer singing the songs she loves. A. Murray, 3 Feb, 2019.

Irish torch singer Mary Coughlan was born in Galway in 1956; after enduring a painful adolescence that included bouts with drugs and alcohol as well as a stay in a mental hospital, she relocated to London at the age of 19, living in a hippie squat. After several lean years of waitressing and sweeping streets, Coughlan returned to Ireland in 1974, where a chance encounter with Dutch musician Erik Visser helped point her towards a singing career; specializing in jazz and blues, she began slowly earning a reputation on the pub circuit, which resulted in a handful of television appearances . Three years later, Coughlan issued the vibrant tribute album Sings Billie Holiday. Long Honeymoon appeared in spring 2001.
