Somewhere - Blix Street 2008
On some songs there has been quite a lot of post-production, which for me is no problem, and the results of this are quite successful. Personally, I'm not so fond of Cassidy when she moves too far into the jazz genre , but I must admit that "Ain’t Doin' Too Bad " is a fine production and that Cassidy delivers a great version of soul/blues number "Chain of Fools" . The standout among gthe ”produced” songs, though, is Cassidy's own "Somewhere" which is a very fine original song splendidly produced by Chris Biondo .
Otherwise, the highlights for me are the more folk-oriented songs like "My Love is Like a Red , Red Rose ," "Bold Young Farmer" and "If I Give My Heart ", with Cassidy alone with her acoustic guitar and personal vocals. The live song " Won’t Be Long" is also fine and interesting showing that Cassidy and her band also played solid classic rock .
Quite a few songs are so well-known from various other versions, there really is no need for new interpretations and I must admit that I feel that ”Coat of Many Colours" , "Walking After Midnight", "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain"and "Summertime " are a bit unexciting.
