ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Beth Fitchet Wood is a singer, guitarist, composer and producer. In the early seventies, she was a member of the Southern California band "Honk" who developed a cult following, released three albums and toured nationally.

After Honk, Beth played in just about every conceivable musical format, in most venues. No casinos. She also toured the world as a background singer and co-producer of projects with her husband Steve.

This project was conceived in Slovenia, inspired by Slafrock (stringrock), a wonderful group of musicians assembled by Andrej Sifrer. The instrumentation is unique. Violin, viola, cello and accordion provide the underpinnings for sparse, intimate arrangements of pop songs. Beth includes many of her old favorites, some staples of her repertoire and some songs she felt had been unjustly ignored.

Other than this effort, Beth has recorded and co-produced two children's cassettes, with her co-Honk members Will Brady and her husband, Steve Wood. She recorded an album with her girls group "The Girls" entitled "That's What Dreams are For", and another one with her guys group "Zero Ted" mysteriously entitled "Sacred Cow". She also sings and plays in the studio, on IMAX films, Kenny Loggins CD's, Hilary Stagg CD's and even a part on Jackson Browne's "Late for the Sky".

More excellent stuff from excellent singer
Another very nice album by the lovely BF-W. This album features a Central
European ensemble (& hubby Steve Wood & some others), but actually the feel
is not so much exotic, as just more string based than "Silos." It's fine for that though, and an interesting mix of songs, including very sweet reworking of
a couple of Honk's best songs, "Circles in Sand" and "Buckeyed Jim." Her singing is excellent throughout I think, sweet and spare with a lot of warmth. And how nice to cover Shelby Flint's title song, as I think Beth in some ways is really an 'heir' of Flint's sound and mix of tender folk/pop. I'm a little less moved by the El de Barge and Michael Mcdonald songs, but fans of them will probably like them more than me. And it's daunting to try "Over the Rainbow" I think. She won't make you forget Judy Garland, but still good effort there IMO. The rest are super (I particuarly love her take on Rickie Lee Jones's "It Must be Love"). Fine singer. Quiet greatness I think.
