Recommended first album:
Image is her debut
2000—Go West! Records—1008-2
Recommended for folk fans
Jean West—acoustic guitar, electric guitar, vocals
Kevin Webb—electric guitar
Image shows a good range of earnest folk and rocking songs. Musically, there are some very nice sounds here. I'm not sure the recording situations were the best as her vocals often sound a touch tinny and could be mixed a little higher/more carefully. Overall, though, this is an enjoyable, solid album with no bad tracks. I'd love to hear where she goes from here. (email@example.com)
