All Music Guide - William Cooper
Eva Cassidy has achieved worldwide acclaim as a peerless interpreter of tunes ranging from Sting's "Fields of Gold" to standards such as "Over the Rainbow" both of which appear on the 1998 release Songbird. Sadly, Eva Cassidy passed away on November 2, 1996, following a battle with cancer. She was only 33 years old. Her pristine singing voice and choice of songs add poignancy to her recordings that admittedly make her music more effective. But even if she had lived, her ability to make even the most familiar songs fresh through the sheer power of her voice would still earn her the well-deserved praise that, sadly, she never lived to see.

All Music Guide - William Cooper
Eva Cassidy has achieved worldwide acclaim as a peerless interpreter of tunes ranging from Sting's "Fields of Gold" to standards such as "Over the Rainbow" both of which appear on the 1998 release Songbird. Sadly, Eva Cassidy passed away on November 2, 1996, following a battle with cancer. She was only 33 years old. Her pristine singing voice and choice of songs add poignancy to her recordings that admittedly make her music more effective. But even if she had lived, her ability to make even the most familiar songs fresh through the sheer power of her voice would still earn her the well-deserved praise that, sadly, she never lived to see. Ironically, Eva Cassidy never intended to be a professional singer. Working as a landscaper by day and living in Bowie, MD, just outside of Washington, DC, she was eventually coaxed into performing and eventually began making her way through D.C.-area clubs; the 1996 album Live at Blues Alley is an effective introduction to her live work. Hooking up with producer Chris Biondo in his Maryland studio, and incorporating a range of styles with roots in folk, jazz, gospel, and blues, she recorded material ranging from the traditional "Oh, I Had a Golden Thread" to the Christine McVie-penned "Songbird"; much of this material was eventually released on posthumous collections such as Eva By Heart. The 2000 release Time After Time is a collection of 12 previously unreleased Eva Cassidy performances; primarily studio recordings, Time After Time also includes four live tracks. This album continues the tradition set by previous Eva Cassidy releases: a mix of traditional favorites such as "I Wandered by a Brookside" and more contemporary songs like the title track, a remake of the 1984 Cyndi Lauper hit. Eva Cassidy was quite capable of handling up-tempo material, as Time After Time's version of the Box Tops hit "The Letter" proves. It is the slower material, however, that is ultimately more affecting; "Woodstock" written by Joni Mitchell and "Kathy's Song" Paul Simon are brilliant examples of Eva Cassidy's interpretive skills and are easily the album's best tracks. Calling Eva Cassidy one of the best singers who ever lived could easily be considered an overstatement. But to her dedicated fans, Eva Cassidy is worthy of such praise. Time After Time is a solid collection from an amazingly gifted singer who died too soon.

    This gave me chills!

    I've only recently become a fan of Eva Cassidy, but each time I hear this album, I find it so difficult to believe she is no longer with us. Her performance is sheer poetry. It reaches down deep into my soul, just like a Fleming aria.

    She is awesome!!

    I never heard of Eva Cassidy until I heard her rendition of Time after Time by Cindy Lauper on UPN's Smallville. I was so moved by the song that I had to find out who the artist was. I was crushed to learn that she had passed away a few years ago, but her legacy lives on in her beautiful songs. She has a truly amazing voice and her performances are simply marvelous. Her rendition of such classics as Autumn Leaves, Imagine, Over the Rainbow, Bridge over Troubled Waters found in her other disc are refreshing and a pleasure to listen to. Simple guitar accompaniment lends to intimate and earthy quality to her performance and while some songs are a little rough around the edges, it serves to enhance the overall charm of her interpretation. I also enjoyed her other albums: Live at the Blues Alley, Imagine, Eva by Heart and Songbird.

    Excellent

    If you aren't moved by this artist singing..you must be dead. Her interpretation of "Woodstock" is brilliant with its timing and surprises, and should please baby-boomers. I have not been a big folk fan, though she brings folk music to an ethereal level thusfar not associated with this genre.

    Best Album of Eva Cassidy

    I currently own three CDs of Eva; Songbird, Live at Blues Alley, and Time After Time. I can't believe I'm saying this, but 'Time After Time' is, by far, my favorite album out of the three. If you love Eva, you must listen to this album. This is the one to own.

    I love it!!!

    If someday I'll go to a place far away and only allowed to take one CD with me, this is it!!! I love her voice and all the songs. I love to listen to the songs in a quiet evening with a cup of hot tea. Wonderful CD!

    At Least A match for Patsy Klien

    This lovely songstress has left us all too soon - age 33 from melanoma - but she has left a rich legacy of song. This is what it is like o hear an angel sing

    Its Music from the Heart

    Eva has surpassed greatness with her voice. This CD shows that She had music with nothin but Love. Even In her death her music and songs still breathes love. This is a must have for all those who love music from the heart.

    It's pure Eva, what can I say?

    I waited to write this review until I heard this CD a couple dozen times. It's all here ...the jazz, the gospel, the forgotton folk song. And finally, the linear notes that really explain Eva's life and untimely death. I believe that God called her because her talent was needed in heaven more than here on earth. God bless you, Eva.
