Torch Songs: Beulah The Good

James Jackson Toth: Beulah the Good


I've wanted to post this song for quite sometime now but have been patiently waiting for a theme that it would fit. When I first learned of this song by James Jackson Toth, I didn't know that he was the front man for Wooden Wand And The Vanishing Voice. He has also recorded under the name WAND. On this track his former wife, Jessica Bowen, serves up the background vocals. Dylanesque in sound, Beulah The Good is a surreal take on a tale of lost love with lines such as 'It was like I lost my favorite hair between the bristles of a broom'. That said, I'll let the song take it from here.
