Back during the mid-90’s when “Evidence” was recorded, composer and musician Alan Williams lost faith in the project, shelving this original incarnation after sending out promotional copies. Now a quarter century later he has resurrected the album with newly recorded vocals, some arrangement tweaks, and a complete remix in stereo and 5.1 surround. Retitled “Evidence Unearthed” this update bridges the gap between his time in the folk-rock band Knots and Crosses, and his more recent work with Birdsong At Morning, the later group which has been reviewed for their excellent sound quality and surround mixes here on Hi-Res Edition.
With contributions from K&C associates Rick Harris and Tom Hambridge, as well as future collaborators in Birdsong At Morning, Greg Porter, Ben Wittman, and Thomas Juliano, as well as guests Laurie Sargent, Leslie Smith, Ducky Belliveau and Gene Elders, the record stands as a time capsule of the mid-1990s Boston rock scene, while pointing to future directions Williams explores over the following decades.
A study in contrasts, Evidence Unearthed pushes the elements familiar to fans of Birdsong to wider extremes – louder and softer, more complex yet comfortable in simplicity. A once buried treasure is now Evidence Unearthed. For high resolution and surround sound fans, Williams is releasing a CD + Blu-ray containing 96kHz / 24-bit audio in stereo, LPCM 5.1, and DTS-HD 5.1 on a region free Blu-ray featuring both vocal and instrumental mixes.
