It's A Living . . .

by Beth Scalet

Scalet's grit and velvet voice fits her folky/bluesy original material like your favorite pair of jeans. Her version of "A Whiter Shade of Pale" is worth the cost of the CD, but you'll fall in love with her original songs too.

Album Notes
This outing, originally released on vinyl in 1981, was a forerunner in the do-it-yourself indie movement. The polished backing (including full band) and high-quality studio recording certainly don't sound "low budget," though, and guest artists feature some of the finest players on the Kansas City scene. Beth's original songs include the award-winning "Dance to Your Blues," the haunting "(Have You Seen) Phillipa," and the rocking "Lose Your Money." Her version of the classic "Whiter Shade of Pale," with its spidery acoustic guitar motif, is spectacular. As one listener said, "I never really understood this song before I heard Beth do it."
Beth has been making solid independent recordings for a lot of years now, and this is where it started.

". . . I'm currently on my third time through my spanking new copy of your "It's a Living" CD - I LOVE a LOT of these songs - THIS time through, my favorites are "California", "Does It Always Come Down", and "Dance To Your Blues", but the last time through I could have sworn they were "Does It Always Come Down", "In The Daylight" and "Phillipa"....and the first time through I was hit with "Another Love Song"....this bodes well...
....I love listening to you and Kathy and Caren sing together and the way "Missing You" immerses me in the smoky bar/end of the evening feel we might be pretty dang familiar with('(missing) something I never had' - good lines throughout)...
And I haven't even GOTTEN to mentioning your wonderful treatment of "Whiter (Shade of Pale)..."
Man, I REALLY like this "Does It Always Come Down" and "California"...and "In The Daylight".....and "Phillipa"...
