Christian Folksinger (No label 7501) 1975?
Sometimes the album title says it all. Beth’s humble custom recording follows the simple ‘60s folk-singer format, perhaps inspired by artists like Joan Baez. Most of the songs feature just Beth on acoustic guitar, plus her high school psychology teacher on string bass. Some of the songs are familiar hynms (‘When I Survey’, ‘My Hope Is Built’, ‘Take My Life And Let It Be’), others are titles that she wrote (‘For God So Loved The World’, ‘Wonder Why’, ‘We All Can Live’). Also covers of ‘Judas And Mary’ and ‘Pack Up Your Sorrows’, the latter adding harmonica. She’s deﬁnitely got that female folk-singer voice, often applied with a heavy vibrato. Not on the level of a Marj Snyder or Linda Rich, but certainly not a toad either. Beth is from Ocean Grove, New Jersey. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
