4.0 out of 5 stars Rediscovered Evidence September 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I still have the original, so I can't make much for comments about the extra track. But if you have yet to discover this little gem from 1989, it's never too late to make up for lost time. "Evidence" was the joyous sounds of two similar cultures coming together for one superior album. Boo Hewerdine was the front man for a British near folk band called The Bible ("Eureka" is still at least listed on Amazon) and Austin, Texas country/folk singer Darden Smith (best solo album is "Trouble No More" on Sony). Together, they made the kind of open and airy folk music hybrid that people like Bruce Hornsby and 10,000 Maniacs were popular for at the time.

But how much do I like this album? While "Evidence" is still in my collection, I've lost my Bible CD's. I had to go back and dig through a few used stores to find Darden's music again (though the duo still do the occasional tour, and Darden has some new material out). The brainstorming the pair did together brought forth some fun and catchy songs like "All I Want is Everything," "Under The Darkest Moon" and "Love Is A Strange Hotel." ("Hotel" was also covered wonderfully and made the title to a Gregson and Collister CD.) There are a couple of darker songs (the title track and "A Town Called Blue") that will bring Lyle Lovett to mind, or maybe Steve Earle in his less radical days (The Bible's early sessions were produced by Earle). That combination has been enough to always make "Evidence" a keeper.

Much like Any Trouble's debut album, this is smart acoustic music that is being brought back into print. Don't let this "Evidence" get overlooked again. Also recommend, Any Trouble, Gregson and Collister, Smith's "Little Victories" and "Trouble No More," and Hewerdine's "Baptist Hospital."

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific collaboration September 13, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Boo Hewerdine and Darden Smith combine to create an outstanding pop/folk/country stew. This one has it all -- catchy hooks, quirky lyrics and lasting images. "All I want (Is Everything" and "Reminds Me (A Little of You)", in a just world would both have been huge radio hits. If you're a fan of Paul Kelly, John Hiatt, Jackson Browne or other similar singer-songwriters, you should buy this album. Though both have gone on to create some wonderful music separately, the only sad thing is that this is their only collaboration. Enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Infectious music April 22, 2000
By Greg
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful selection of songs by two (relatively new at the time) artists who were put together by the record companies and came through marvelously with catchy tunes and enthusiastic vocals. I saw Darden and Boo a couple of years ago at a venue with barely 20 people. They were wonderful.
