I've had this CD less than 2 days but it has already become one of my all time favorites. Her singing is better that ever, more rhythmic, more sultry and all of her little Frazeyisms are as good or better than ever. The music has a much more soulful groove than the Tanyas, as does the singing, and the understated electric rhythm/light lead guitar really kicks it in subtly and pushes it solidly along. You can listen to it musically, vocally, think on the lyrics whatever... it works well on any, every and all levels.

Her writing has matured. She was great before, but after a few years of the ups and downs of real adulthood experience, you really do have something more to say. I haven't heard a soul opened this widely since "Blue", "For the Roses" or "Blood on the Tracks". Sorry that she had to go through much of it, but glad that she could share it with us so beautifully. As Dylan once said about all of us who loved "Blood on the Tracks", "A lot of people tell me they enjoy that album. It's hard for me to relate to that. I mean, it, you know, people enjoying that type of pain, you know?"

I would recommend that you grab this immediately, if not sooner.

I'm a Be Good Tanyas fan and was bummed when they disbanded (?). Anyhow, saw Frazey Ford was playing locally, touring behind her just released solo project. Didn't know what to expect and damn, what fine show and mesmerizing bunch of new songs. This album builds slowly, patiently and gets better with every listen. Her interest in R&B shines on many tracks. Both the melodies and the very fine lyrics just keep pulling you in. Best tracks are Lost Together, Birds of Paradise, Hey Little Mama, but they really are all quite good. Ford defies easy categorization, even moreso than the BGT, but just buy this album. You won't regret it. Sometimes it reminded me of the creative fusion of Luscious Jackson, sometimes the moodiness of the cowboy Junkies, whatever, it's very good.

Frazey has put together an awesome debut solo album from start to finish. Every song on here seems to really connect with me on so many levels. I LOVE IT. Keep up the good work Frazey!

This album is pure magic - a unique blend of soul and old style country. Deceptively simple songs, beautifully sung and with a fabulous group of first-rate musicians providing the foundation for Frazey's unforgettable voice.

This is an incredible CD, different than what you might be used to. It certainly was for me, but I find it very captivating. It could be Frazey's voice or the bluesy quality of the recording, a sort of slow, relaxed setting that is quite nice. I find myself coming back for a listen again and again, and then, a smile when "Obadiah" appears on the shuffle mode. I had never heard of Frazey before this CD. I had heard of the Be Good Tanyas but had never really listened to them. This CD is such a wonderful contribution to my collection that I have to say thanks to Frazey and wish her well.

I'd never heard of Frazey Ford until a month ago. Never heard of the Be Good Tanyas either because I don't listen much to Bluegrass or Folk. But, I love great singing and songs whatever the genre and I was lucky enough to hear a couple of Frazey's songs on an internet radio station. I bought the 3 Tanyas cds instantly and then Obadiah. Well, this woman's songs and singing go right to my heart and soul. No question her voice is beautiful and her singing style is unique. Just beautiful, quirky, even angelic, yet very earthy at the same time. There are moments here that are "folk", "r&b" and "bluegrass" but this cd should not be categorized because it's just full of feeling and should appeal to people who love all of those types of music. In essence, "Obadiah" transcends genres. I've already bought copies of this cd for several friends and can't understand why "Obadiah" is not the biggest selling album on the planet. Or why I'd never heard of it until recently. Thank you Frazey Ford. Please make a new album soon.

I'm a fairly voracious music consumer, whether it be CDs, live downloads, miscellaneous other downloads (no, I've never "stolen" even one single song off the internet which an artist should have been paid for), streams, online radio (if I may digress briefly on that note, thank you KCRW for being the best), and on and on and on. Through all this, I've run across a lot of good music, but it's not often that a musician or band grabs my attention instantly with the force Frazey Ford did the first time I heard her.

Some have said her voice reminds of Janice Joplin, or maybe Joni Mitchell, and a few others, but it's fair to say Ms. Ford has a voice like no one else.

The ambience is hazy, sexy, and stimulating, the kind that keeps your attention from beginning to end, and there's not a bad track on the record.

I'd almost be willing to guarantee you'll probably find yourself mesmerized and immersed in it after multiple spins and listens. So far, I may have heard the album in its entirety about three or four times, but can already tell it'll be spending a lot of time in my players.
