Album Notes
Stages\" is the first live album from the dynamic Ruthie Foster. Ruthie\'s reputation
for scorching live performances has spread across the country as she and
percussionist Cyd Cassone have toured in support of her Blue Corn debut \"Runaway

\"Stages\" is an aptly titled album as it features songs from all stages of Ruthie\'s
career and was recorded in a variety of musical settings. In addition to Ruthie\'s
usual performance setup, which features her vocals and guitar and Cyd\'s percussion
and harmonies, \"Stages\" finds the duo working with an expanded rhythm section on
several songs. The Austin-based chamber group Will Taylor and Strings Attached joins
in on a few numbers including a haunting version of Stephen Foster\'s \"Oh! Susannah\".

Ruthie\'s infectious stage personality comes through loud and clear on \"Stages\",
making it a \"live\" album in every sense of the word. If you\'ve seen Ruthie and Cyd
in person or on their Austin City Limits appearance, \"Stages\" lets you bring that
magic home! If you haven\'t had the pleasure yet \"Stages\" is a great introduction to
the magic of Ruthie Foster LIVE!

Prayin' For Rain
This song rocks as does the whole album, as Does Ruthie, ROCK ON Girl, and all the best to you from your Canadian Fan, from Debert Nova Scotia Canada. P.S. Come play in Halifax sometime, and even a though make a DVD Live and place it forsale, Love watching you and your soulful blues, since your too far away to watch live, DVD would be aswesome.

Take care and God Bless ya.

This CD is absolutely wonderful!!!
This CD is a wonderful showcase for Ruthie Foster's immense talent. Her range of styles, warm stage presence, and that fabulous voice-- all come through on Stages. Ruthie's live performances are magical, and much of that magic comes through on this live CD. This is all I hoped it would be!


WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
Saw her Austin City Limits-Mesmerized!!
I'm not normally a Blues fan-depends on artist, BUT
this lady is PHENOMENAL! ALL her songs are upbeat,you
can hear her well over instrumentals with a nice blend.
I sense a great Warmth and Genuineness in music and her.
If you enjoy Blues at all, BUY BUY BUY!

The Feelingis Fantastic!!!
The feeling in this CD is the same as in the big tent on the Tønder Festival (Denmark) Saturday 28th October 2004. Fantastic afternoon. THANKS!!!

Christine Kucher

This CD is incredible! I've been so looking forward to her live CD and this definitely does not disappoint. Words can't describe it - I get chills every time I listen to it!! I highly recommend it. I will be listening to it over and over. Thanks Ruthie and Cyd!!

George Martin

Hearfelt music that stirs the soul and revives the spirit
I met Ruthie while boarding the same plane. I had just enough to time to get her name and that she has recorded some CDs. God was with me that day. And now her music is with me. She is truly gifted and inspired!

Barry Clark

the essence of a stunning performer
The essence of a stunning performer, a perfect takeaway from her gig. If you haven't seen this lady live, then the next best thing is this album. It should make you want to own all her albums and still be craving more.


This CD is a perfect expression of Ruthie Foster's mesmerizing live performances. Taped with no intention of creating a live album, the performances showcased here are honest and absolutely a testament to the immense talent that IS Ruthie Foster.


Génial, comme d'ab !
Pas aussi bon à mon humble avis que son dernier Album "The Phenomenal" Ruthie Foster; mais plus roots et engagé. Bravo !
