Better Late Than Never is the first studio album by Cold River Lady. It was recorded in 1992, with Pete Brown producing, and mixed by Pete Kerr.

The recording comprised original band members Phil Weaver (vocals, 12 string acoustic guitar, six string electric guitar), Will Wright (descant & tenor recorders, Hammond C3 organ, electric piano, synthesiser), Paul Cheshire (lead guitar, vocals) and Helen Hardy (vocals).

The rhythm section used for this recording was John MacKenzie, one of the UKʼs top session bassists who had become a good friend of band members Helen Hardy and Will Wright (as well as having worked with producer Pete Brown many times) and Bob Jenkins (also a top UK drummer) who was a friend of Helenʼs as well as a regular session partner of Johnʼs.

The rhythm tracks were recorded in Stoke on Trent, with over-dubs at Pete Kerrʼs studio in east London and mixed in Stoke by Pete Kerr, Pete Brown and Will Wright.

The album was released in August 2010 by Angel Air Records.
