The information given here is drawn from the album notes, from conversations and interviews with Eva’s family and musical colleagues, from e-mail from Eva’s fans, and from my own personal knowledge.

She came into the studio on two different days and sang ten or twelve songs, three or four times each. Studio recordings “Still Not Ready” and “I Can Only Be Me” are, oddly perhaps, the least successful cuts.

It Doesn’t Matter Anymore,” the opening track of the album, was taped at Pearl’s Restaurant in Annapolis, probably in 1994. The recording quality varies noticeably from track to track, and there are a few awkward fade-outs–presumably to remove audience noise–but still the sparkling music comes across quite vividly.

As someone once wrote in the Guestbook, “There will never be another Eva Cassidy, but there will be someone else.

Eva only ever recorded two Stevie Wonder songs, however — this one and an unreleased version of “Superstition” that Biondo describes as “funky.

Track 3 Recorded live in winter of 1995 at the King of France Tavern located in The Maryland Inn in historic downtown Annapolis.
