People Get Ready reviews
One of these songs is unavailable elsewhere
This disc is a "CD single" imported from the UK, containing two songs, "People Get Ready" and "Over the Rainbow."
"People Get Ready" is the same version heard on the album LIVE AT BLUES ALLEY and SONGBIRD, but "Over the Rainbow" is different. It is not the studio recording found on the albums, it's the solo vocal/guitar rendition recorded (and videotaped) at Blues Alley the same night the live album was made. Serious Eva Cassidy "collectors" will definitely want this disc.

I'm no musicologist, not even a musician, but for many years I have experienced and appreciated remarkable performances from many accomplished artists. Having been immersed in Eva Cassidy's recorded musical work for more than the past year, I can witness it is one of the more compelling collections of recorded music available.
While Eva's musical genius does encompass the passion, range, subtlety, interpretation and authenticity that her admirers universally acclaim... it seems the really special magical resonance of her gift revolves around her inspired selection of material and then each unique styling she chooses to share with us. The testaments of her fans are impressive, but we ain't seen nuthin' yet. The legacy of the collected works of Eva Cassidy's art will be seriously studied far and wide. Many may prefer this CD single of "Over The Rainbow" (live and acoustic solo performance) to her studio recorded and mixed version previously available. Not only will the serious listener want to add this recording, the serious listener will also want to hear for them self what values the "No Boundaries" album brings to the collection.
The collected works of Eva Cassidy are a significant circumstance in the world of musical art in American popular culture at the turn of this incoming 21st Century. We are everlastingly fortunate for Eva's superb, and at the time nearly singular, confidence in her own artistry.
