  Amazon.com: American Tune: Music: Eva Cassidy
American Tune's modus operandi is similar to previous Cassidy CDs in its mix of standard repertoire (here, everything from "Yesterday" to "God Bless the Child" and Ray Charles's "Hallelujah I Love [Him] So" rubs shoulders) and fine, less obvious choices (Joe Simon's early-'70s soul hit "Drowning in the Sea of Love").
From her timeless reading of 'American Tune' (Paul Simon's reflections on an ever-changing America) to 'Drowning In The Sea Of Love' (a searing blues-rock take on the Joe Simon 70s hit written and produced by Gamble & Huff), this collection is filled with thrills and surprises.
Included on this album is another version of "God Bless the Child" which she did as a duet on her album with Chuck Brown titled "The Other Side".

  American Pearl - Bio   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
American Pearl does rock out with the best of them--numbers such as "Automatic" (which you may remember from the closing credits of Scream 3), "Free Your Mind" and "Amphetamine Girl" are guaranteed to get pulses pounding and fists pumping.
For example, album opener "California" acts as a "heads-up" for anyone heading to a big city with even bigger dreams, expecting it to be just like the plastic fantastic images seen on the silver screen.
Indeed, American Pearl are now seasoned road veterans, having played at Woodstock '99, opened several shows for Kiss in 2000, and embarked on a club tour with Days Of The New in the latter part of that year.

 American Tune - Eva Cassidy - Song Listings
The saga of Eva Cassidy, the late Washington, D.C., singer who gained fame long after her early passing from melanoma, continues vibrantly on American Tune, a collection of ten more "leftovers" that former bandmates discovered in the past year -- similarly as they did on Imagine, the previous release of great cuts.
While she never achieved much more than local recognition in her lifetime, her inspirational legacy is not only rooted in her own story of personal courage but her ability to take songs that have been heard thousands of times and make them sound fresh, exciting, even better than the original.
Based on the ongoing discovery of more tunes Cassidy no doubt never thought would see the light of day, you can only hope that there are more trunks full of tapes waiting to be mastered and released.

 Green Day - American Idiot
American Idiot is so hard not to like and a perfect opening to the album of the same name.
When I bought this album I was excepting it to end with a rockier song however it ends with a slower song, however it blends in with the rest of the album so nicely and is a real beauty.
This album is strong from beginning to end and shows that although these guys haven’t released anything for 4 years it was worth the wait.

Tunes with foreign titles are usually retained under those titles unless the tune has been disseminated under its English translation, in which case the English title is the one preferred.
A tune's key is listed first; major, minor or modal, or in combination, since many fiddle tunes shift during the course of the piece between keys and modes.
Violin string tunings are given next, with Standard referring to the normal tuning of a fiddle in fifths, GDAE from low to high.

Eva's breathtaking interpretation of American Tune, the title track written by Paul Simon, is of the highest standard that Eva fans have come to expect.

 EvilSponge: Album: Disparation by Biowire
A strange name, to be sure, but that begs the question of why this disc is released on Athens, GA based Kindercore records.
I think the reason for this is that My Knee uses one of the few vocal samples on the album, and it is distorted and buried under the keys.
The album wraps up with There Once Was a Boy, a happy energetic track that features 80's style thumping drum beats, serious synths, and echoed voice.

 Site Updates at Musical Discoveries - Review of Eva Cassidy's "American Tune" Album Now Online! (15 July 2003)
American Tune is well worth the price, but it is a step down from Songbird and Imagine.
Overall, the best way to listen to this album is to focus on Eva's voice and pretend that the rest of the cut is as clear and polished as the songs on Songbird.
"American Tune," well, what can I say, a lot of imagery, very emotional with deep thoughts of the strengths and struggles this lifestyle requires, from America's inception, through the current identity crisis washing upon us, with the terrorists and the decision to invade Iraq.

This collection of tunes and songs from the American Civil War might have been heard in Civil War army camps from Maine to Mississippi, from Georgia to Missouri, and on to the Western territories.

 CLUAS Indie Album Reviews: Madonna's 'American Life'
From 'Like A Virgin' to 'Like A Prayer in the '80s, and 'American Pie' to 'American Life' in the '00s, Madonna has never been one to shy away from experimenting with new sounds.
On 'American Life' she teams up once again with Mirwais Ahmadzai (who produced her 'Music' album) and together they've hit the jackpot yet again.
For anyone who thought Madonna had dried up, 'American Life' is the perfect response, and should add to her current tally of 55 Top 20 hit singles on this side of the Atlantic.

 SoundStage! Eva Cassidy - American Tune
Because of the success of those albums, it was inevitable that her other recordings, most of which were presumably never meant to be released, would find their way onto CD.
American Tune is made up of a mixture of demos and live performances that are unpolished, yet they still reveal glimpses of Ms.
The vocals sometimes have an indistinct and diffuse quality and can also sound a little hollow on tracks such as "Yesterday" and "American Tune." Many of the arrangements are quite simple, consisting of just one or two guitars or piano, and do not exhibit much of a soundstage.

 EvilSponge: Album: Coaster by Quantazelle
For example, at several times in the past few weeks i have caught myself humming a tune while i cleaned up, did the dishes, etc, and the tune that i keep humming is Pedwards, which is on this album.
The album also displays an amazing knowledge of the recent history of electronic music, in that many of the songs take elements from other acts and re-combine them is new and interesting ways.
Vanity Knobs with Groove Grimace is a nice mellow tune in the vein of Casino vs. Japan, while It's Fizzbang takes those same luscious keyboard drones and combines them with world beat percussion a la Young American Primitive.

 Don McLean Online: The Official Website of Don McLean and American Pie
Don McLean's superstar status is always attributed to his remarkable song, 'American Pie' which, in 2000, once again topped the charts worldwide, this time recorded by Madonna.
Back in 1972, 'Vincent' ('Starry Starry Night'), taken from the 'American Pie' album gave Don McLean a second number one hit single and another landmark entry in the history of popular music.
Between the heady years of 1971 and 2000, Don McLean released over 20 albums and scored major chart successes with 'Everyday' (1973), 'Mountains of Mourne' (1974), 'Crying' (1980), 'Castles in the Air' (1981), 'Since I Don't Have You' (1981), 'Can't Blame the Train' (1987) and again with 'American Pie' in the UK in 1991.

American Idiot is the kind of old-school rock opera that went out of style when Keith Moon still had a valid driver's license, in the tradition of the Who's Tommy, Yes' Relayer or Styx's Kilroy Was Here.
American Idiot could have been a mess; in fact, it is a mess.
"American Idiot" is the perfect introduction song to this album which describes the general atmosphere.

 American Tune by Eva Cassidy CD
In fact, this eighth release, AMERICAN TUNE, contains a reworking of perhaps the most covered song of all time, the Lennon-McCartney ballad "Yesterday," and despite thousands of versions, she discovered a new interpretation hidden within the folds of the familiar.
Most remarkable about AMERICAN TUNE is despite the diversity of the sources, her voice forges a discernable, undeniable thread between songs; Cassidy is as comfortable with soul as traditional folk, pop as jazz, and her irreplaceable voice could wrap around just about any song.
Please don't miss, "You Take My Breath Away." "American Tune," well, what can I say, a lot of imagery, very emotional with deep thoughts of the strengths and struggles this lifestyle requires, from America's inception, through the current identity crisis washing upon us, with the terrorists and the decision to invade Iraq.

 Eva Cassidy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Eva Marie Cassidy (February 2, 1963 in Washington, DC – November 2, 1996 in Bowie, Maryland) was an American vocalist described by the British newspaper The Guardian as "one of the greatest voices of her generation." She had a diverse repertoire of jazz, blues, folk, gospel and pop.
However, her posthumously released recordings have since sold in excess of four million copies, and in early 2001 the compilation album Songbird reached #1 on the UK album charts.
Cassidy was unhappy with the album and promptly began recording a studio album which was eventually released as Eva by Heart posthumously in 1997.

 Song For The Asking | Simon & Garfunkel Discography
This album was fueled by the success of Bob Johnston's "electrified" mix of "The Sound Of Silence." While this heavier sound would later be put to good use by Simon and Garfunkel, this album can't escape its true self: a group of acoustic songs sloppily overdubbed and/or hurriedly recorded by Bob Dylan's band.
This was a "contractual obligation album" (a CD recorded to fill out the requirements of a recording contract, usually to end it) which was released to coincide with the 1993 Simon & Garfunkel reunion tour.
Garfunkel's first all-new studio album since Songs From A Parent To A Child, this CD features Artie teaming up with folk singer-songwriter Buddy Mondlock and pop singe-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Maia Sharp, the result being a potent mix of voices and styles that is the best Garfunkel CD since Breakaway.

Virgil Gonsalves' flute at the end of "Sunny" is frosting on the cake, but the key is that a song which was a smash on three formats -- R&B, country, and pop charts, and captured the heart of jazz musicians from Ella Fitzgerald to Pat Martino, gets this total reinvention here.
As brilliant as Nick Gravenites is as a songwriter, it is Hebb's tune which is the centerpiece of this disc.
