Editors’ Notes Seven Year Ache was pretty revolutionary for its time. Ostensibly a country album, it encompassed introspective singer/songwriter sounds (“Blue Moon With Heartache”), synth-flecked pop-rock (the title track), classic-sounding twang (“My Baby Thinks He’s a Train”), and straight-up rockers, all giving you the feeling that you’re getting a peek at what lies deep within an eclectic artist’s complicated soul. With a more modernistic sound than her famous father’s (even if he was an influence), Rosanne Cash presented a new path for country with this 1981 milestone.
