5.0 out of 5 stars Beth covers the hits she wrote for others, 27 Jan 2014
This review is from: Uncovered (Audio CD)
The album title is very clever, playing on the likelihood that Beth recorded demo versions of these songs for others to record. Beth has never officially recorded any of these songs for her previous albums, and this provides her with an opportunity to do just that, although she has written or co-written so many songs that only a small selection are presented here.

Sticking with officially released recordings, the originals were by Jim Brickmann and Rebecca Lynn Howard (Simple things), Alabama (Here we are), Andy Griggs (Sweet love shine), Muriel Anderson (Pray), Don Williams (Maybe that's all it takes), Faith Hill (This kiss), Willie Nelson (Nothin' I can do about it now), Tanya Tucker (Strong enough to bend), Bonnie Raitt (Meet me halfway), Mindy McCreedy (One in a million), Lorrie Morgan (Five minutes) and Mary Chapin Carpenter (Almost home). Beth co-wrote most of these songs with other writers.

Sadly, the booklet does not contain any specific notes about each song, but Beth has recorded this album in America, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Of the songs, I was already familiar with some of them and Beth's own versions are generally mellower. I enjoy Beth's versions, and on first listen, I think I'll highlight Nothin' I can do about it now, one of the few songs here that Beth wrote by herself.

This is a wonderful album that reminds us what a fantastic songwriter and singer Beth is.
