Forthrightly billed as "the essential album," Songbirds is an attractive, wide-ranging collection of contemporary female singer-songwriters that's cleverly and deliberately aimed at those who have recently discovered the delights of Eva Cassidy. The basic premise here is that if you like Eva, there's plenty more where she came from. Across two discs and some 31 songs, the proposition is abundantly proved. The selection is broadly transatlantic, though the British and Irish contingents are heavily represented by the more folky performers, including Eliza Carthy, Norma Waterson (Eliza's mum), Kate Rusby, Cara Dillon, Maire Brennan (ex-Clannad), and June Tabor. Standout Americans include the late Ms. Cassidy herself, Emmylou Harris, and the always wonderful Mary Chapin Carpenter. Nitpickers will note that, although they are singers, not all the performers here are necessarily songwriters (Eva Cassidy for one), and they'll also wonder what happened to all the great women songwriters of past decades. You won't, for example, find Sandy Denny here, or Carole King, or Joan Baez. Nor will you find many of the exciting new voices in contemporary country, such as Gillian Welch, Iris Dement, and Lucinda Williams. Despite such omissions, this is a good, reasonably well-rounded snapshot of some excellent modern female performers. It's the kind of compilation album that's just perfect for drive-time playing.
