"Evie Sands: Close Your Eyes, Cross Your Fingers," by PS Ybarra, 2012
In homage to the incredibly soulful and incomparable Evie Sands. Evie Sands recorded the album “Any Way That You Want Me” on A&M, which features my all time favorite song “Close Your Eyes, Cross Your Fingers.” What Evie Sands missed in popularity at the time of its release, she more than made up for in critical and popular acclaim as one of the most underrated and mysterious rock legends, crossing genres and generations still.
Dusty Springfield named Evie Sands as her favorite singer, and one listen to any of her material, but particularly any cut from “Any Way that You Want Me”, and you too will be swept up in the haunting soulful vocal strut of Evie Sands.
