Product Description & Reviews
1992 collaboration between the Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown, and a then-unknown young vocalist named Eva Cassidy. While they traveled different musical paths, both vocalists sound vibrant and complement each other as if they had been working together for years. Though Brown may have been considered past his sell-by date (since Go-Go's heyday had long since passed), these recordings prove otherwise. As for Cassidy, she would continue to remain a talented but little-known vocalist who would not achieve success until after her 1996 death. Only in America could an album like this have come together: Eva Cassidy, a young vocalist who, had she lived, might have gone on to become her generation's favorite song interpreter, trading verses with Chuck Brown, seasoned godfather of the D.C. underground funk movement known as go-go. By the time this was recorded in 1992, the go-go trend had long since peaked for Brown, while the twentysomething Cassidy was still an unknown local session vocalist. Yet, on this set of standards, the two collaborate as if they were picking up where they'd left off decades earlier, from easy-riding versions of "Let the Good Times Roll" and "Gee Baby, Ain't I Good to You" to near-definitive renditions of "Over the Rainbow" and "Dark End of the Street." And while it's easy to focus on the posthumously acclaimed Cassidy, Brown's haunting solo turn on "You Don't Know What Love Is" suggests that unjustly overlooked talents are still making music in the shadows of our nation's capital. --Bill Forman
