Classic Album Review: Eva Cassidy | Imagine

The late vocalist's immortal talent shines once again on her latest posthumous set.

This came out in 2002 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


Cancer killed D.C. club singer Eva Cassidy in 1996. Since then, the few recordings she left behind have become left-field hits, thanks to her powerfully supple vocals and relaxed way with everything from torchy jazz to airy folk. Imagine contains another 10 previously unreleased odds and ends — from Tennessee Waltz and Danny Boy to Fever and the John Lennon title cut — that showcase her immortal talent. No imagination required.
