专辑介绍:

几年前,在诚品音乐(虽然如今我已不在诚品购买任何商品)的试听机上听到了一张专辑,听了几秒鐘就黏住了,接著当然就是付帐去。那张专辑是Eva Cassidy的Songbird。因为实在是太好听了,我连外层的保护套都留下来,每次听完再装回去,所以我还知道这张CD的标价是$549,相对於这里面所记录的美好声音,这是多么划算的一笔交易。

有些人就是天赋异稟,这个人就是,如果你听过齐豫为三立拍的串场影片就知道,声音这种东西一半以上都是靠天生的,这不是后天多么努力就能达到的(当然,不同的音质有不同方向的成就)。这女人,唱的真是好听,不论是Songbird中精选的曲目,或者是像他在Blues Alley表演时挑选的曲目,这些曲目的翻唱者何其眾多,其中还不乏经典天皇天后,但Eva就是能在其中特别让人注意到她的版本。

尤其是她所唱的Autumn Leaves,这首已经可以说被翻唱到烂掉的名曲,在她的自弹自唱之下,那种孤寂与感概不但让人落泪,其中传达出的平静与抚慰,亦足以让人在这样的歌声中死去也无所遗憾;相对於Autumn Leaves,闭上眼睛听她所演唱的Over The Rainbow,则让人在天籟之中跨越彩虹直达天际的喜色。对於学习吉他自弹自唱的人来说,她的弹唱表现绝对是自弹自唱的绝佳经典。

然而,这样美丽的声音,却是在消逝之后才开始广为人知。Eva Cassidy大部分的专辑都是在过世之后才发行的。

1996年7月,在Live at Blues Alley这张现场演唱专辑的宣传行程中,因为身体不适而被检查出来罹患了黑色素细胞癌,治疗过程中她的健康每况愈下,同年9月,在一场以What A Wonderful World做为结束的演出之后,她被送进了医院,最后在11月2日於家中过世,享年33岁,其后依其遗嘱进行火化,骨灰洒於靠近马里兰州的圣玛莉河流域公园,一处靠近加州的自然保护区。

而我们,则因为她的歌声,将不停的讚嘆这个世界的美好。

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.

靚声又歌诣出眾的才女Eva Cassidy,每首歌经她詮释都能添上无限色彩,只因演唱能力与感情独到,虽然是翻唱歌,常给人留下深刻印象。此碟耐听性极高、录音极好,绝对是经典系列。


我想很多人都熟悉这首Louis Armstrong的名作, Louis Armstrong所演唱的版本是我所喜爱的, 但我最爱的却是Eva Cassidy的版本.
Eva Cassidy生於1963年, 死於1996年, 终年33岁. Eva有生之年, 只於1996年9月出过一张个人专辑–Live at Blues Alley. Eva於同年11月去世. Eva在生时, 这张专辑并未替Eva带来很大的名与利, 1998年唱片公司替她发行精选集-Song Bird却引起一名英国DJ的注意, 於英国电台播出'Over the Rainbow'一曲后, 引起广泛乐迷的注意, 'Song Bird'大碟旋即迅速在英国各排行榜升上首位, 於英国售出超过100万张以上.
至此, Eva才广为世人认识.
Eva的演唱技巧纯熟, 歌曲中充满感情, 她演译的'What a Wonderful World', 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', 'Field of Gold'是上班一族听过的眾多歌手演译的版本中, 最能勾动我心的版本. 儘管只是一个简单木结他作为伴奏, 在加上她优美的歌声后, 歌曲便变得丰富, 充满音乐性.
作为一个那么出色的歌手, 於有生之年, 未能受世人赏识, 听到世人给她的掌声, 是多么的可悲, 她去世时内心是多么的寂寞. 这可说是继'梵谷'后, 再一次证明上天的安排是世人所不能理解的.

每次听到Eva演译的'What a Wonderful World', 便会想到Eva已经无法看到歌曲中描述的美妙世界, 不晓得她演唱此曲时, 她知不知道她已患上癌症, 快将远离歌曲中描述的美妙世界, 她是以甚么心情演唱此曲呢, 真是令人感伤啊....

4.0 out of 5 stars A great collection, although no previously unreleased tracks, August 25, 2004

This review is from: Wonderful World (Audio CD)
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.

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