At the risk of sounding maudlin, I have just discovered her. Wow. Just. Wow! And I just spent three of hundred bucks on all the vinyl I could find....My heart is broken thinking about her loss all these years ago.

Thank you for the introduction. It gets emotional when you read her story.

I think I will spend some time listening.

I think my favorite Eva tune is " Oh, Had I a Golden Thread ". Eva at her best.

That’s one of the songs I use when auditioning speakers. A lot of tweeters get harsh when she hits her high notes and it’s often the make or break moment for me.
Fantastic voice, heartbreaking story, great music.

You are now... Making up for lost time.

But just think, that is "Money well spent" and
Eva Cassidy is most definitely... "Worth the long wait!" :)

Yes, and whenever I hear her version of " What a Wonderful World " I get just a wee bit misty eyed.

turns out I was listening to her on a couple of audiophile anthologies I was listening to...and did not even know it. I seem to be discovering these artists about one a month... last month it was Alan Taylor...

Discogs are getting to know me........

A good friend introduced me to Eva Cassidy's music in 2001 ... too bad you missed listening to her all these years. She's got to be my favorite vocalist, and I frequently have a tinge of sadness when I think that she passed away so young, and almost unknown in her day.

I recently discovered Hayley Westenra (feel sometines like I'm living under a rock) and have been listening to Charlotte Church for a decade. I have a BD concert of Jackie Evancho that's grown on me, she has a lot of talent, and the 5.1 uncompressed recording is the best I have. Of course Norah Jones is right up there with the best contemporary singers as well.

If by any chance you have missed any of these, you must take the time to seek them out.
