Time After Time is a studio album by the American singer Eva Cassidy, released in 2000, four years after her death in 1996. [4] [5]


Critical reception

The Washington Post wrote that "the songs have been lovingly, painstakingly digitized and sequenced so as to create a coherent album of tender, touching acoustic folk and minimally orchestrated pop that spotlights Cassidy's talent." [1]

Arun Starkey, writing for Far Out , opined Cassidy's version of "Kathy's Song" could make a "strong claim to be better than the original." [6]
