"Long awaited second release on PSF by dream-weaving Korean folk singer, Kim Doo Soo. The album features beautifully restrained new recordings of Kim Doo Soo's most classic songs -- a highly personal selection, made by Kim himself. The discovery of Kim Doo Soo outside Korea, through the Damon & Naomi compiled International Sad Hits and then on his first new album in five years, Ten Days Butterfly (PSFD-175), was one of the more gratifying moments of the last decade. Here was an entirely unknown voice and a poetic sensibility that is tender, richly melodic, agonizingly soulful, and undeniably human. These re-recordings of some of Kim's most striking songs from his previous five albums focus on the hypnotic patterns of his acoustic guitar and voice, with some subtle tonal shading from percussion, brass, synth, accordion and cello. The result is a lulling, deeply flowing whole, ripe with the subtle and seductive currents of the evening river of the title. Includes a bonus three track CD. Fourteen tracks in total. Gatefold papersleeve. Booklet includes lyrics in Korean, Japanese and English."
