The album American Tune was released in August, 2003. Named for the haunting Paul Simon song that is one of the album’s highlights, the album was eagerly awaited by Eva’s millions of fans around the world. In the United Kingdom, where Eva Cassidy is a greatly-beloved artist, the album was #1 on the official album charts for two consecutive weeks …
As with the two previous albums, Time After Time and Imagine, the songs on American Tune come from a variety of sources. “The Water is Wide” and “American Tune” were taped at Pearl’s, a storefront restaurant in Annapolis where Eva sometimes performed solo. “It Don’t Mean a Thing” was taped at a higher-profile venue, the King of France Tavern at the Maryland Inn, also in Annapolis. The other songs were recorded at Chris Biondo’s studio, either in Rockville or in Glenn Dale, Maryland.
Though the official title of the album is American Tune, it could also appropriately be called Buried Treasure. Until recently the very existence of six of the ten songs on the album, and all the photos and drawings used in the album’s design, was unknown.
