Leave The Light On is the third solo studio album by American singer-songwriter Beth Hart, originally released in October 2003 via Koch Records in the US.

Welcome to the sound and poetry of recovery and redemption.

On Beth Hart's third album Leave The Light On, she has taken her already lean, rootsy approach to writing, scaled it back to what is essential in a song, then poured the very grain of her being into each performance.

Beth Hart's Leave the Light On is filled with songs that take no prisoners, such as "Bottle of Jesus" or "Broken & Ugly", with fierce melodies and burning guitar crunchiness.

Thom Jurek reviewing the album for AllMusic writes:  “…On Leave the Light On, Hart speaks through unapologetically classic, mainstream rock music so gritty, edgy, and true (informed by the gospels according to the Rolling Stones, the Faces, and Janis Joplin), it's virtually unlike anything out there at the moment -- the White Stripes not withstanding. "Lifts You Up," the opener, uses one of the finest anthemic R-A-W-K hooks in a chorus since Delaney & Bonnie, employing muddy ringing buzzsaw guitars, upright piano, bass, drums, and hand percussion to celebrate the notion of life on life's terms: "It lifts you up it puts you down/Then it feeds you life, then it lets you drown/While it holds your heart then it slowly tears you/And you know life is what I mean." The title track is the first real power ballad of the new century. It is the most searing cut on the set…”

“…Ultimately, Leave the Light On is indeed Hart's crowning achievement thus far. Not many can string three fine albums together, let alone make each better than the last. This too is part of a rock & roll heritage that Hart, one suspects, is proudly a part of: the process of artistic growth realized over time, one that seeks the long road rather than short gain. Ultimately, as Beth Hart continues to allow her muse to inform and transform the ashes of her past, the listener benefits mightily from her journey. No matter what happens commercially or critically, this album will sound necessary and vital a decade from now. Classic rock indeed...”

This exclusive expanded vinyl edition includes no less than 5 bonus tracks (Side 1, including a duet with Barry Hay recorded in Holland) + 5 bonus live tracks (Side 4, of which 4 tracks recorded in Amsterdam). No matter what happens, this album will always sound necessary and is a vital example of classic rock.

Check out the tracks:  Leave The Light On”; “Leave The Light On (Live)”; “World Without You (Live)”; and “Lay Your Hands On Me (Live)”.
