Editorial Reviews

Product Description

U.S. pressing of the late singer/songwriter's companion compilation of all the tracks not featured on her album 'Songbird' (1998). Blix Street. 2004.

About the Artist

WONDERFUL WORLD, A COMPANION PIECE TO SONGBIRD, is an anthology comprised of standout selections from Eva Cassidy’s other, lesser-known CDs.

Included in this collection are "What a Wonderful World," originally on Cassidy’s first solo album, LIVE AT BLUES ALLEY; "Kathy’s Song," "Anniversary Song" and "Penny To My Name" from TIME AFTER TIME; "Say Goodbye," "How Can I Keep From Singing?" and "Waly Waly" from her studio album EVA BY HEART; "You’ve Changed" and "It Doesn’t Matter Anymore" from her IMAGINE album; and "You Take My Breath Away" and "Drowning in the Sea of Love" from last year’s critically-acclaimed CD, AMERICAN TUNE.

The opening and closing tracks of the new collection, "What a Wonderful World" and "Waly Waly," respectively, both contain new backing tracks recorded especially for this collection by Cassidy’s original band members.

"We understand that many people may already have most or all of Eva’s CDs," explains Blix Street President Bill Straw. "But, for those people who only have SONGBIRD, this anthology serves as an introduction to the other five Eva Cassidy CDs." Eva Cassidy died of melanoma at the age of 33 in November, 1996, months after the release of Live At Blues Alley. Although Cassidy was posthumously honored by the Washington Area Music Association as 1996’s ‘top female vocalist" in six separate musical categories and immediately voted into the WAMA "Hall Of Fame," it would be nearly five years before the world at large discovered the music of Eva Cassidy. After the initial release of Songbird and the re-release of Live At Blues Alley and Eva By Heart during the Spring of 1998, word of mouth began to spread around the globe. Time After Time was released in June, 2000, an NPR producer heard it and arranged for an Eva Cassidy segment on Morning Edition, broadcast in December of 2000, and Eva Cassidy CDs suddenly occupied the top four positions on the amazon.com pop music chart. Meanwhile in England, the Top of the Pops 2 television program aired Eva’s Live At Blues Alley video performance of "Over the Rainbow," the clip aired again in January, 2001 due to overwhelming popular demand, and Songbird’s run up the British Pop charts reached No. 1 on March 18, 2001. "Unknown American Singer Goes No. 1 In England Five Years After Her Untimely Passing" became news on American television. One by one, The Today Show, ABC News With Peter Jennings, CNN, among others, chronicled the bittersweet success of Eva Cassidy. ABC Nightline devoted an entire program to The Eva Cassidy Story, which received the greatest viewer response ever for a Nightline program and has so far been aired four times. Both Imagine (2002) and American Tune (2003) entered the British charts at No. 1, as Eva Cassidy became the first artist ever to achieve three posthumous British No. 1 albums. Of the six million Eva Cassidy CDs sold worldwide to date, Songbird accounts for half. Wonderful World provides a window into the five CDs that make up the other half.

Customer Reviews

This is a must listen to cd.

If you haven't heard Eva Cassidy's Wonderful World CD, you are missing the sound of a voice that will bring tears to your eyes.
ron sackman
This CD is a sort of "best of" compilation, a companion to the CD "Songbird" and of equal quality.

People yet to discover the amazing voice of Eva Cassidy will want this album, perhaps after purchasing the first compilation "Songbird". However, I do believe this is a better compilation because it contains more of my personal favourites. One listen of her rendition of Simon and Garfunkel's "Kathy's SOng" will turn you into an Eva Cassidy fan. "Waly, Waly" is simply beautiful, with a haunting touch. Most fans will own all of the other albums, so buying this will be unnecessary as it contains all previously released material.

Tracks on this collection include:

1. What a Wonderful World (from Live At Blues Alley)
2. Kathy's Song (From Time After Time)
3. Say Goodbye (from Eva By Heart)
4. Anniversary Song (from Time After Time)
5. How Can I Keep From Singing? (from Eva By Heart)6. You Take My Breath Away (from American Tune)
7. Drowning in the Sea of Love (from American Tune)
8. Penny to My Name (from Time After Time)
9. You've Changed (from Imagine)
10. It Doesn't Matter Anymore (from Imagine)
11. Waly Waly (from Eva By Heart)

I would recommend purchasing "Live at Blues Alley" for those just new to Eva Cassidy.

This is a great companion CD to 'Songbird'. If you can only purchase a limited number of Eva Cassidy recordings you can't go wrong with this selection of songs. (Of course every song she sings is great!!) If you already own the entire collection this one is still a nice addition to keep in your car or with your portable CD player. If you've never heard Eva Cassidy you're in for a rare treat when you listen to an Eva Cassidy song for the first time. You will be hooked!

even if you own all of eva s previous albums- you will still enjoy this nice collection. good informative linear notes about the history of each song and where it was recorded. the re-recording of WONDERFUL WORLD and WALY WALY with the orginal band members never sounded better. enjoy!

This album contains selections from every style of music and Eva masters all of them. Her voice is the most amazing instrument...at times powerful, at times soft and sweet. I am saddened to think that our world has lost someone so talented so prematurely. I listen to her CD's over and over and never get tired of them. I am in awe.

If you are an Eva Cassidy fan, don't buy this CD, there is nothing new here. Pony up and get the CDs these tracks came from, you will be rewarded with so much more than is on this disc. If you are not onto Eva yet, this is not a bad place to start, but its fast food. The original CDs are a banquet.

I purchased every last one of Eva's CD's after hearing her sing "Imagine" just less than a year ago... Any other artist who even tries to sing a song that Eva already recorded sounds like a cheap imitation of what was already perfected by Eva. Eva has it all! You cannot go wrong by purchasing ANY recordings of Eva Cassidy, who has the ability to move you to levels you never thought possible with the sound of her magical voice. WOW!

This CD will not dissappoint anyone who loves a great singer. Eva Cassidy has mastered several genres of music--the ballad, folk, country, gospel and rythym and blues. She has a voice with a range comparable to Mariah Carey. But best of all--she knows how to SING a song--not just hit the notes.

This CD is a sort of "best of" compilation, a companion to the CD "Songbird" and of equal quality.

Even though Eva Cassidy died in 1996 the music she left behind is a living presence. This is simply the most fascinating singer of my generation--tallent, emotion, depth--it is all there.

Eva Cassidy may be the best the world has ever known for the type of singing she did. "What a wonderful world" and "Over the rainbow" are two songs that I could listen to her sing everyday and never get tired of them or her. She is not your average everyday girl with a guitar. Don't think twice about buying anything she did. R. Lee Rochester, NY
