Album Review

Beth Wood has first-hand knowledge of how volatile the music industry can be. The guitar-playing singer/songwriter suffered a disappointing setback in 1998, when the small, Atlanta-based Autonomous label folded a mere three months after releasing her second album, New Blood. So when both of Wood's Autonomous CDs, Woodwork and New Blood, went out of print and became difficult to find, she took matters into her own hands by recording a third album, Late Night Radio, and circulating it herself. It's a good thing that she took the proactive approach, for there's a lot to admire about this CD. Though it falls short of being a gem, Late Night Radio is an appealing, satisfying effort that is far from predictable. The charming storyteller sounds very much at home on rootsy, earthy pop-rock offerings like "Grenadine," "My Miles Davis Kind of Blue," and "Guilty," but she's equally expressive on acoustic folk numbers such as "Ghost of a Man" and Richard Thompson's "1952 Vincent Black Lightening" (the only song on the CD that she didn't write herself). Wood has described herself as "a rock & roll person who reserves the right to be a folkie," and it's hard to argue with that description after listening to Late Night Radio. One hopes that eventually, she will become better-known.

beth wood is an amazing singer and songwriter. i got the chance to see her live at my school. i had never heard of her before then but i was blown away. her music, like herself, is fun, spunky, and irresistable. her song "my miles daviskind of blues" is about her crazy old roomate who took her miles davis cd. she just made up a story about what happended to it but she really has no idea other than the fact that the roomate took it. i still love the song though.

Late Night Radio

Beth Wood delivers a story in song that amazes me. Although this is an early CD from her career, she still delivers these great tunes in her live shows today. Beth is an accomplished guitarist, vocalist and song writer. Beth does a great job with Richard Thompson's 1952 Vincent Black Lightning - in fact, I like her rendition a lot better.

I can't believe I'm the first to rave about this work of art!

I bought this in CD 10 years ago - if it had been an LP it would have been worn out long ago. Beth Wood's imagery is phenomenal. "I will uncover you" is one of the most sensual, erotic stories ever. "Ghost of a man" still raises the hairs on my neck. Even her cover of "52 Vincent Black Lightning" opens up the song melodically, and is a remarkable interpretation of that classic. Beth uses imaginative guitar tunings that punch up the music; I really enjoy her playing.
Beth, you are one of the most under-appreciated artists around!
