My LifeThis won't be a long review because losing Eva still breaks my heart.
We're very lucky to live in an area that encourages musicians and singers. The Washington, DC area is not considered to be a center of the music industry but there is quite a bit of work for our area musicians. Since the chances of hitting the big time are almost nonexistent, most of the musicians here either grew up here of moved to this area because they like to work every day, and because they work every day, they're great musicians. That sets up a very supportive, noncompetitive atmosphere and the musicians here embrace that atmosphere. That's why Grace Griffith sent Eva's tapes to Blix Street Records.
Grace was working on her first record for Blix Street (Minstrel Song) and we were all very excited with and for her. Grace came into the studio one day and asked if I thought she should send Eva's tapes to Blix St. I told her I thought she should wait a couple of months to make sure her record went smoothly and to be sure Bill Straw who runs the company would be good to work with since Eva's parents were still grieving and I wanted to be sure that we couldn't possibly add to that grief in any way.
Well, she sent them anyway, which is really just what she should have done. Bill Straw and Blix Street did everything right. When Eva's music started to spread, they manufactured enough, they followed the flow of interest and stepped up to dedicate their lives to making Eva's music available. People around the world fell in love with Eva and her music just like we love her here. (Yes, we do and did love Eva here but the people who write books don't talk to us.

This album called Simply Eva is "Simply" the best Eva Cassidy release to date.
There has been some criticism of this release based on the fact that all of the songs have been released before. And although it is true that these "songs" have been released before, they were different versions. The versions on this album are all united together by the fact that they are all acoustic versions. Each track features just Eva and her Guitar or just Eva. This makes this album unique. It stands out above the earlier albums in this respect. Not only that, but you truly get the cream of what Eva Cassidy is all about.
I have to say that this album is one of my all time favourite albums. And it certainly is the best one by Eva Cassidy.
We get the fantastic voice and the great guitar playing. We get the powerful and beautiful expressive connection through the performance not only to the songs themselves, but also to Eva herself. She really brings the songs to life and gives them their maximum potential. She has perfect pitch and harmony. She has this incredible talent to make the song all hers. Each song has its unique Eva Cassidy interpretation that almost turns even an old song into a new one. Eva had that edge of injecting a new twist of life to a song.
This album illustrates these points more than ever. The arrangments are not cluttered with other instruments and sounds. They are not needed. We can see that with the right performer you can bring out the best in a song with the simplest of arrangment. Both vocals and guitar work are excellent.
Also this programme of tracks is a fine collection of songs. "Songbird" is great. "True Colours" is better treated here than either Cyndi Lauper or Phil Collins versions.

This is not just another cheap Cassidy cash-in, this collection of previously unreleased solo performances focuses on her beautiful folk singer voice with a collection of stripped back performances of only her voice and her own gentle guitar work on an entirely solo collection.
This is a great listen and a wonderful addition to my collection

Don't believe the cynics, this album is brilliant!! All the previous Eva albums have been quite eclectic, but this one holds together better, perfect for any dinner party. Hearing Eva's voice a capella had the same effect on me as the first time I heard her voice about 6 years ago, really wonderful stuff. Recommended.

I've had this album about a week now and it's easily my favourite Eva album. I've always preferred Eva's acoustic performances to the band stuff, so to have an entire album of them is a dream come true. The previous version of Songbird is one of my all time favourite songs, but this version is even better. You can say the same about just about all the songs on this album, you can hear Eva's voice more clearly and it's even more beautiful and moving. I can't recommend this album enough to old and new Eva fans alike, SUPERB!

I never actually knew who sang Songbirds, and the lovely version of Over the Rainbow - I'd just heard them on the radio and loved them, so decided to find out who sung them. I was really saddened to learn that Eva had actually passed away so young, so I had to buy the CD to hear what else she had sung. The first night it arrived I was sitting on my own with some wine, listening to it, and I actually cried at Songbirds! how embarrassing! The whole cd is easy to listen to - I would definately recommend it.
