Woman Blue Review

by William Ashford

This album, recorded in 1965, was considered by many to be among the most stunning acoustic albums of its day. Of midwestern origin, Roderick possessed a voice of maturity beyond her years and on this masterpiece, captured a haunting and haunted blues diary. The album mixes blues and folk classics, including "You Were on My Mind," prior to its release by We Five. Woman Blue was re-released on CD in 1995, with the ill-advised addition of several outtakes from the original sessions. This is a breathtaking document of a talent left virtually unknown.
