American Songwriter Magazine reviews ‘Beth Hart – Live At The Royal Albert Hall’
Beth Hart: Live At The Royal Albert Hall
Written By Hal Horowitz // November 28, 2018
Live at the Royal Albert Hall CD/DVD
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Beth Hart’s second live release of 2018, and fourth overall, is a far different affair than her first. Where Front And Center (Live From New York) found the West Coast based blues/jazz/rock singer-songwriter playing in an intimate setting at NYC’s cozy Iridium Club, this one expands her reach significantly by documenting 2018’s sold out gig at the titular 5,000-plus seat London venue. Most impressive though is how Hart, rather than bolstering her presentation to match the storied building, creates a warm, receptive atmosphere as she blows through 20 songs in a dynamic, emotionally laced two-hour set.
