Songbird - Blix Street - 1998
The performances of the ten songs are dazzling and it is highly deserved it got such a prominent reception; sad that Cassidy never even got to experience this recognition.
My favorites are Christine McVie's title track, Sting's "Fields of Gold" and the beautiful "I Know You By Heart" written by Diane Scanlon and Eve Nelson. Also, "People Get Ready" and "Over The Rainbow" are performed with fervor and conviction.
I clearly prefer Eva Cassidy when she interprets melodic ballads, but is less enthusiastic about her jazzy side, exemplified here by "Oh, Had I a Golden Thread" and "Time is a Healer".
