I had been waiting for a new release from BNC for what seems like years. The album's title is I think rather clever. This is basically a retrospective look at some rather good songs, which had been previously written for and recorded by some very talented singers. Included are the likes of Alabama, Don Williams, Faith Hill,Willie Nelson, Tanya Tucker, Bonnie Raitt, Mindy McCready, Lorrie Morgan and Mary Chapin Carpenter. .Recording songs already recorded by others, leads to the production of 'cover' versions. However, as she wrote the songs herself , perhaps they could be said to have been 'uncovered'. With such talent reciording your songs, and other great artists singing vocals on the album, I think it would be very difficult to leave her out of the list of top female singer songwriters of the last few years. My favourite BNC album is still Sand and Water though. If you haven't heard it, I think you have nissed something quite special.
Beth has had some hard times and I wish her, and her family, all the happiness in the future.
Many thanks for the hours of pleasure you have given me, Beth. In the words of Nanci Griffith, 'Thank you Kindly'.
