  1. Nice mix.
    I love Eva Cassidy’s Fields of Gold. Tragic that she died so young shortly after that album was released.

  2. What Scott said – Eva Cassidy’s cover of Fields of Gold is one of my favorite songs. Gorgeous voice, and her loss was indeed tragic.

  3. carol hopkins – Canada – I am Canadian. I love this beautiful country and hope to discover more of it.. I enjoy writing, photography, and walks on nature trails and beaches. I am passionate about human rights and my favourite stories to read are uplifting and inspirational stories. I believe in the innate nobility of the human spirit and I endeavor to be positive. I have learned many lessons over the years, but most importantly I have witnessed the inherent goodness of peoples near and far. I hope my writing reflects that. All photographs used in my blog are mine, unless otherwise stated. Contact:

    Awesome – thanks eh!

  4. Brian – Santa Rosa, California – Abstract artist. Perennial student. Seeker of connections and hidden worlds.

    Glad to see I’m not the only one who remembers Concrete Blonde.

  5. Eva Cassidy was a wonder. Such a short career, so many great songs. Check out the version of “I Could Have Told You So” that she did with Chuck Brown.

  6. As for Eva’s version, in the comic book drama series Strangers in Paradise, (I think) for a pull back view over several panels of a child plane crash survivor, it explicitly her version, not Sting’s, that is playing.This while text boxes explain the child’s future.
    It’s been a couple decades since I read the comic, but the image has remained.

  7. Thanks for the playlist. Some of my favourites. Joni (of course), Eva and Joan Armatrading – Talking to the Wall with her harmonising to the flugelhorn horn – just wow. Still shivers.

  8. ‘Til Tuesday – yessssss
    I bought that album (‘Welcome Home’, if anyone wants to know) and literally played it non-stop for days and days, week after week. It’s still one of my all time favourite albums. Thanks for putting this track in the playlist, you made my day.

  9. Thanks for bringing the Joni Mitchell to my attention; I have all of her stuff from the 60’s and 70’s but rather lost the thread as she got deeper into jazz. ‘Night Ride Home’ harkens back to the 70’s groove. And yes, Concrete Blonde… if you’ve never caught the version of ‘Beware of Darkness’ on their first release, you’ve missed out!

  10. Davida Chazan – Jerusalem, Israel – I have been writing on-line content (reviews and articles of all kinds) since about 1998. Since 2013, I've been specializing in writing book reviews. Aside from my blog, I write reviews for Book Browse, Curious Book Fans, and have a blog on the Times of Israel on-line newspaper. If you have a book you want me to read and review, please send me a brief summary (including genre and age group of the target audience) and if I'm interested, I can accept ARCs in all formats including PDF, ePUB and mobi.
