Ten years after she first topped the British charts you may think you've heard all there is to hear from Eva Cassidy. Think again. You may have heard most of these classic Eva songs before but, as sure as less is more, you have not experienced anything like this collection of previously unreleased Eva-only, guitar/vocal performances. It's like hearing Eva Cassidy for the first time, again.

In addition to including Eva's previously unreleased, re-defining version of "San Francisco Bay Blues," Simply Eva is the first album to include the Blues Alley guitar/vocal performance of "Over The Rainbow" embodied in the Rainbow video that triggered Eva Cassidy's rise to the top of the British pop charts in March, 2001. Recorded five years after the 1991 version heard on Songbird, Eva's fully evolved "Rainbow" literally redefined this all-time No. 1 popular song (according to a BBC radio poll).

The differences in the performances of the other songs range from folk versions of "Wayfaring Stranger" and "Wade In The Water," to three extra verses in the included version of Paul Simon's "Kathy's Song," to the more subtle nuances that grace every individual performance.

Less than expected

I believe this album suffers from a bad pressing, or, bad mastering... perhaps both. My ears, and my amp's volume knob, indicate it was put to vinyl very loudly. Many of the peaks sound distorted. There are also a lot of pops and clicks...loud ones that really matter. I'm using an Ortofon 2M Bronze, so should be tracking pretty well. I love records and usually prefer them, but this makes me want to buy the CD. I purchased because of the positive review on this site. Somehow I had a different experience, unfortunately.

I love Eva though! You can't go wrong with her as an artist!

An acoustic delight!

This is a MUST HAVE for any Eva fan. The fidelity of this pressing is outstanding and the quality is equally outstanding. If you have other Eva recordings or are new to Eva, this is one that you don't want to pass up. An acoustic delight!
