Eva Cassidy's performance at the Blues Alley jazz club has become musical history. Now, experience every song recorded on the night of January 3, 1996.

Of the 31 songs recorded that night: 12 were included on the original Live At Blues Alley album; seven other Blues Alley recordings had been used on other Eva Cassidy albums; leaving 12 previously unreleased Blues Alley recordings, which included eight new songs.

Bill Straw, president of Blix Street Records, says: "The seven Blues Alley tracks used on other Eva albums are as good or better than those that made it on to the original album, but some of the previously unreleased tracks had never even been ‘mixed-down' from the original multi-track recordings. The next step was to mix the un-mixed recordings, assemble all 31 tracks and listen to the lot."

Fortunately, more turned out to be much more. "The first listening to all 31 tracks in one sitting was an inspiring experience. Beginning at Capitol Records in the late 60's, I had heard out-takes from the best of the best...but had never before heard anything that approached the sheer consistent vocal excellence of these 31 one-take, all on one night, performances."

Nightbird, a super-album containing all 31 songs, affords everyone the opportunity to experience Eva Cassidy's one night, one take tour de force. The couple of inevitable dropped lines actually enhance the overall effect...that what you are hearing really did happen...on the night of January 3, 1996.
