Great overview of Darden's music and all new versions too!,
This review is from: Extra Extra (Audio CD)
Darden Smith's quietly masterful songs range from folk through country to rock and pop. On this album you get to hear all these styles from nearly all the albums. Common to all the songs is Darden's seductive voice, impeccable poetry, and sharp ear for melody and construction.
This is nice for Darden fans because all the versions are new, and one or two quite different, like "The Levy Song", sung down the phone, or the piano solo "Loving Arms". And there's a song unique to this album - also well up to scratch.
Good place to start if you're new to Darden Smith. I can't imagine you wouldn't want more after hearing this.
