The sweetest voice,
This review is from: Time After Time (Audio CD)
I've just received an email from my friend Varna in Denver Colorado asking why I rave about Eva. Well it so happens I was listening to 'Time after Time' on my PC and replied that it's simple EVA has the Sweetest Voice I've ever heard, she arranges songs and plays a guitar like no one else. Just writing this review and reading other Amazon comments send shivers down my spine.
This CD is a superb collection of songs starting with the Paul Simon classic Kathy's song that Art and him sang so well she takes to another level. Bill Wither's Ain't no Sunshine with piano accompaniement and just on at the moment Joni Mitchell's Woodstock sung with so much passion and grace.
There is such a lovely mix from a touch of folk, blue in 'Way beyond the blue' a brilliant Vocal rendition. How she pulled off such quality, control etc is beyond most of us?
This CD is a great and lasting testiment to her a brilliant artist because that's simply what she was.
If it hadn't been for Paul Walters of the Terry Wogan BBC Radio 2 breakfast show it may have taken a bit longer for her talent to be recongnised here in England, but as soon as you hear the first notes from her guitar and voice you will realise why he had such faith and conviction.
This is certainly one of her best CD's if not the best just go out and buy it you won't be disappointed & if you want an excellent book on her life with pictures of her art you wno't go wrong with 'EVA Cassidy SONGBIRD, Her Story by those who knew her' ISBN 0-75284-779-1'.
