Product Description


Joel and Ethan Coen have long established themselves as film stylists without peer: from Blood Simple to Fargo, their movies have never been less than fascinating, and there has never been any question that their films could not have been made by anyone else. In T-Bone Burnett, the producer of the soundtrack for O Brother, Where Art Thou?, they have finally met their match: Burnett's work in assembling a collection of pieces for the Depression-set film is as skilled and entrancing as the film itself.

Despite the presence of Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, Alison Krauss and bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley, the stars here are the songs themselves, a host of traditional songs augmented by archival recordings. The collection is also a showcase for a host of lesser known and forgotten bluegrass masters: The Cox Family, collaborators with Krauss; Norman Blake, a sideman for Bob Dylan and June Carter Cash; country gospel group The Whites, who once counted Ricky Skaggs as a member (and who, here, cover the Carter Family); and young bluesman Chris Thomas King among them. All bring life to their songs, and the results are sublime--and, at times (Krauss and a choir's take on "Down To The River to Pray", Blake's instrumental version of the oft-repeated "I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow"), downright entrancing.

Some of these songs can be found on Alan Lomax collections. If you enjoy this album, we also highly recommend the Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music and Woody Guthrie's Asch Recordings series. --Randy Silver

Loved the old bluegrass and bluegrass-influenced material. Some of the songs I remember hearing my Dad play and sing at house parties when I was a child....brings back loving memories!

3.0 out of 5 stars Loved the Movie But this CD fell flat Aug. 9 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are only three tracks on this whole CD that I enjoy. The rest of it is pretty mellow and preachy.

Can't go wrong. If you liked the movie, you'll like the soundtrack. It keeps the interest, moving from lonesome a capella to toe-tapping tracks with plenty of banjo riffs. Definitely recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars False advertising? Dec 2 2012

This is advertised as 2 LP's. I only got one. Am I missing something? Other than that, an excellent record.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Thing Jan. 4 2001
Format:Audio CD
Red alert from the Centers for Disease Control: This CD is a powerful and effective vaccine against the dreary, dopey brainlessness of contemporary country. "O Brother" is as good an introduction as you will find to the roots of American traditional music. There's enormous sweetness and soul here, not to mention musicianship beyond compare. Most of the material on "O Brother" is newly recorded, by a roster of first-rate artists including Alison Krauss, Norman Blake, and the always-astonishing John Hartford, whose loving contributions to the preservation and extension of old-timey bluegrass music are beyond compare. Inoculate your ears with "O Brother." You'll be glad you did.
