Available on Vinyl for the First Time in Celebration of 25th Anniversary Remastered Using Newly Available High-Resolution Mastering Technology and Cut on Heavyweight 180g 45RPM 2LP!
Eva Cassidy's now legendary Blues Alley concert on the third day of 1996 was in some ways a happy accident. Although Eva had spent years in the studio with producer Chris Biondo creating an eclectic body of work, the pair decided that a live album was the quickest way to achieve their immediate goal of creating a CD to sell at gigs. Eva cashed in a small pension from her day gig at a local nursery, her Aunt Claire contributed toward the venture, the Blues Alley venue booked them during their slowest time of the year (just after the New Year's Eve blow-out), a live recording truck was hired and off they went – Eva hoping to generate enough profit to purchase a proper PA system.
The result was Live At Blues Alley, the only solo album released during Eva Cassidy's lifetime. Twenty-five years after its release in the summer of 1996 the album is known the world over. To celebrate the 25th Anniversary, the original recordings have been re-mastered using newly available high-resolution mastering technology. Eva's electrifying vocals, more present than ever, transport the listener back to the time and place. A heavyweight 180g 45rpm double vinyl LP is being released here to truly showcase the sound (the first time the album has been available on vinyl)!
