Beth(my girlfriend) turned me on to her a while back and I manged to scrape up her entire discography for her for x-mas. And upon listening to it, I can't let her music pass buy without more recognition.
Eva passed away in 1996 due to melanoma that had spread to her lungs and bones. It's such a fucking shame that this happens to people like Eva and we are left with turds like Lady Gag Ga.
I absolutely love her music. She has originals but her covers really strike me as awesome.
