It's hard to believe that it's been over 10 years since this movie and the soundtrack from it first came out. A collaboration of the Coen Brothers and T-Bone Burnett, it went on to become a landmark happening for traditional rural American music, ranking up there with DELIVERANCE and BONNIE & CLYDE (actually exceeding them in influence) for introducing old time and Bluegrass music to a new audience. For this 10-year commemorative issue, the producers have added a second CD --it doesn't have Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley or Emmylou Harris on it like the 1st disc has, and we still can't figure out why the Kossoy Sisters are present, but there are some good tracks on the new disc, which may attract those who no longer have the original issue (or who never had it). Specifically, there are a couple of cuts each by John Hartford, Norman Blake, and The Cox Family, as well as a song by Alan O'Bryant and one by Harley Allen (IN THE JAILHOUSE NOW). If you need to replace your original CD, this should do nicely.
