Album Review

Online CD shops where you can sample tracks before purchasing the disc are especially helpful with Chuck Brown, whose music is rarely programmed on radio. The Other Side consists of '40s and '50s supper-club sounds. Eva Cassidy sings on more than half of the tracks, soloing and performing a number of duets, including "You Don't Know Me," "I Could Have Told You So," and "I'll Go Crazy." The '60s deep soul classic "Dark End of the Street" is the most modern song. Lovers of '50s MOR will love this release; everyone else, will not.

Customer Reviews

A Watershed Effort

Not her first recording, but her first as a mature, developed voice. Brown had a profound influence on Eva's craft. The two voices make a wonderful contrast & their affection for each other is evident on this album.
Many of the tunes here are older & while a few are obscure all hold up very well after repeated playings. You Don't Know Me is a stirringly soulful cover of a 50's Eddie Albert country song that, since this effort, has also been recorded several times since as a duet. You've Changed is the kind of torch song seldom heard these days. I'll Go Crazy is my favorite cut as the power in Eva's soprano contrasts wonderfully w/ Brown's bass.
No Eva Cassidy collection is complete w/o The Other Side.

Despite the evocative instrument that was Cassidy's voice, record companies shied away from her, unsure of how to market her eclectic...
