About this deal

She came into the studio on two different days and sang ten or twelve songs, three or four times each. One of the UK fans who was listening to Radio 2 in August of 2002 wrote me, “With Wogan away on holiday, Johnnie Walker is sitting in for him and played ‘Early Morning Rain’ this morning.

As a teenager Eva had this novelty photo taken of herself posing with a cardboard picture of her hero. Chris Biondo tells me that this recording was one of the earlier ones that he and Eva made together, and one of the first with Lenny Williams on keyboard. All of these tracks are previously unreleased and most are live recordings, but listeners who already own LIVE AT BLUES ALLEY know just how refreshing Cassidy’s live performances were. Still Not Ready”: The only completely unknown song on the album, “Still Not Ready” was written by Chris Izzi and Leo LaSota and recorded as a demo in 1987. The recording quality varies noticeably from track to track, and there are a few awkward fade-outs–presumably to remove audience noise–but still the sparkling music comes across quite vividly.Eva’s brother Dan Cassidy’s fiddle is featured in this recording, which was also part of Dan’s solo album DAN CASSIDY ON THE FIDDLE (available only in Iceland). to feel a shiver of delight at another effortlessly ideal cover, or listen to her laid-back “You’ve Changed” from the Blues Alley sessions to experience more of her soulful jazz. And if they’re selling CDs* from their guitar cases, as Eva once did, support their talents and efforts that way too.

Chris Biondo told me in 2000, “She was playing at the Maryland Inn and had asked me to bring my DAT machine. Eva’s is listed, with the comment, “Released six years after her death, it showcases Cassidy’s jaw-dropping voice above all else, which is why it’s such a great version of the song. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).I know you’ve heard it a million times, but this is Eva’s version, and it’s my favorite song on this album. Barbara Cassidy tells me that the beautiful picture of Eva on the cover of the album was taken by Eva’s cousin Walter Wunderlich, the son of Barbara’s sister Dorothea. The setting was Green Hill, Nova Scotia, which is a little village next to the huge green hill where Walter snapped the photo of Eva.

An odds-and-ends collection culled from diverse sources that holds together, thanks to Cassidy's torchy interpretive genius.On the interior of the album cover, the charming drawing of a little girl embracing a honeybee is Eva’s own artwork, from a label she designed for a honey jar. Besides ‘Imagine’ and ‘Tennessee Waltz,’ she did ‘Wade in the Water,’ ‘Kathy’s Song,’ ‘Songbird,’ ‘The Bold Young Farmer,’ and a few others. I Can Only Be Me” is a Stevie Wonder song from the movie soundtrack School Daze by Spike Lee, a filmmaker whom Eva greatly admired. When Terry Wogan played it on his morning radio show on August 2nd, he said “If that doesn’t turn you to jelly, nothing will,” and “We should quit now — have heard many version of this song — none as beautiful as this one by Eva Cassidy.
