The lyrics are sooooooo haunting. I bought this CD, gosh, back in 1998 or 1999 and I still play it regularly. The other songs on this CD are show their age, what Rock was trying to be in 1963-64 (I really don't care for it). It's all loud and hodge-podge. Very dated. Makes you kinda glad Cass didn't go too deep down that path.
This CD is also extremely beneficial to me as a Cass lover, because it wasn't until I heard these sounds did I realize how much Cass could sing anything! Early in her career, it has been mentioned she could bring people to tears with her performances in NY and Washington D.C. These songs evoke the same emotion.
When you listen to Come Away Melinda, Silkie, All the Pretty Little Horses, Winken Blinken And Nod tears will well up in your eyes.
Cass had so much to fight against. She was overweight. She wasn't considered an 'ideal' beauty. She had to fight sexism and an all-male recording industry. I think many of us would have given up and backed down. But not Cass. She persevered. How she did it, is one of the most untold stories of our times.Read more ›
