I have the cd's and there is a slight brightness when she hits the high notes. I think this may be on the tapes. If the records don't have this problem I will buy them.

Fjn, You really ought to seek out the CD "The Other Side", with Eva and Chuck Brown, if indeed you have never heard it. They do mostly standards, but their interpretation is very fresh. The album rivals similar collaborative efforts done by Ray Charles and Betty Carter and even the work of Ella and Louis. It was cut in 1992, but sadly never on LP. You evidently know how transcendent was Eva's voice. Chuck Brown had a wonderful baritone voice and a soulfulness that mixes so well with Eva's ethereal quality.
