Not awful exactly, it just seems unnecessary
on February 9, 2014
I have fallen in love with Miss Cassidy's voice, her phrasing, and her ability to put a unique spin on a song. I think most of the songs on this CD are better served on other CDs, previously released. While I could understand a wish to hear stripped down versions of these songs, if they had been overproduced, these have that "bottom of the barrel" feel to me. I honestly doubt that she would have been ok with these songs, obviously demos, being released as representing her. If you are new to Eva Cassidy I urge you to get "Songbird" or "Live at Blues Alley" first. I think these CDs represent her much better than this collection. All that being said, this collection isn't awful, and you might love the bare bones sound, but I really think there are better representations of Eva's work elsewhere.
