Classic Eva Cassidy 'Take Me To The River' Live Video Released

(The Blues) Eva Cassidy's live performance of Take Me To The River in 1996 has been released on video for the first time. The track appeared on her album Live At Blues Alley, launched just before her death from melanoma at the age of 33. It later contributed to her posthumous rise to fame.

Blix Street Records have launched the video to mark 20 years since the iconic performance. They'll release the 2CD live set Nightbird next Friday, December 11 - two decades since it was recorded.

Label boss Bill Straw says: "All of the performances recorded that night are included. I've never heard anything that approaches the sheer vocal excellence of these one-night, one-take performances." Watch the video here.
