Country music reclaimed its traditional soul with the chart-topping triumph of the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. Down From The Mountain, the concert sequel, recorded (and filmed) at Nashville's venerable Ryman Auditorium, reunites Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, Alison Krauss and Union Station and other O Brother standouts. With little duplication, the selection extends the film's revival of acoustic spirituals and Appalachian balladry, though the performances and pacing of the concert aren't quite as consistently compelling as the studio soundtrack. Among the highlights is a pair of originals by Welch and David Rawlings, the bluesy "Dear Someone" and the Everlyesque "I Want to Sing That Rock and Roll". Where O Brother interspersed archival recordings among the contemporary artistry, the concert finds Nashville gospel's Fairfield Four harmonising on the chain-gang chant of "Po' Lazarus", while the late John Hartford (in one of his final performances) renews the deadpan whimsy of "Big Rock Candy Mountain". --Don McLeese

Not sure what I was expecting, but am sad I ordered the CD and not the DVD. I love the soundtrack from O Brother and should have stuck with that. This is good, but not as much fun for me as the original sound track.

After three years of being dominated by mediocre, middle of the road pop singers with only marginal talent, country music was finally given a wakeup call with the unexpected success of the O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU soundtrack. The double platinum soundtrack has become one of the most successful albums of the year, and has proved to Nashville that the roots of country music are still thriving.
DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN is the companion to the hugely popular soundtrack. Recorded live in Nashville in May, 2000, the album features several of the songs made popular by O BROTHER, as well as many songs recorded by the artists from the soundtrack. While it lacks the variety of the first CD, DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN sports several songs that make it a fine album to own, regardless of whether they were on the O BROTHER album or not. Standouts include the Cox Family's "Will There Be Any Stars In My Crown," Emmylou Harris's "Green Pastures," Gillian Welch's "I Want To Sing That Rock and Roll," and the Whites' "Sandy Land." DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN closes with Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss's duet of "I'll Fly Away." One of the album's best and most bittersweet moments is the late John Hartford's performance of "Big Rock Candy Mountain." Hartford died at age sixty three just a year after the recording was made.
While it isn't as long or enjoyable as the O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU soundtrack, DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN is an excellent companion to its prequel. If you enjoyed the soundtrack, you will love this album. Hopefully, DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN, which has already appeared on the country album charts, will do its share in the quest to repopularize bluegrass and traditional country music.

I purchased this album the first week it was released becuase it featured three of my favorite artists, The Whites, Emmylou Harris, and Alison Krauss and I have found this album to be even BETTER than the O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack! Emmylou Harris offers a fantastic version of 'Green Pastures' with Gillian Welch on harmony. The Whites perform an old tune 'Sandy Land' with Sharon White's amazing vocals on lead! Alison Kraus & Union station have two songs on the album, the first is 'Wild Bill Jones' with Krauss's band member Dan Tyminski on lead vocals, the second tune from Alison is her fantastic 'Blue & Lonesome'. Gillian Welch also presents two of her own tunes, with 'I Wanna Sing That Rock & Roll' being the better of the two. The album closes with Gillian & Alison's IBMA award winning 'I'll Fly Away'. The only disappointment on this album is the exclusion of bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley, who performed on the concert, and is on the video release of the concert. But all in all, this a fantastic album for the bluegrass lover!

So what if they jumped on the bandwagon. "Down From The Mountain" is one of the two best live traditional albums with various artists I've heard since the mid-sixties Newport Folk Festival series. ( My other favorite is "Til We Outnumber Em" ) It's more lively than the soundtrack which is self explanitory and honestly just as good. I like all the performances with the ladies ( Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Cox Family and Gillian Welch ) getting more of the spotlight on the live take. It's nice to hear Harris going back to her traditional roots on "Green Pastures", leaving the "Spyboy" version back at the train station. My only minor disappointment is you hear the crowd clapping on some of the songs while the music is being played which is outdated for modern recording. So we've had a great soundtrack, live album & DVD/Video. What's left? The rumor is the show is going on the road which will be the best thing in music since "The Texas Campfire Tapes".

Congratulations America ! It must be wonderful to be able to go see a concert like " Down from the Mountain " So I shall just have to settle for the vid/dvd.I would like you all to know that American Roots music is very popular in Australia and it is my sad regret that I cannot attend such wonderful events! To those reviewers that found fault with the production and some of the artists , YOU HAVE ALL MISSED THE POINT ENTIRELY ,you sad benign creatures. To those of you that have a genuine love of GOOD MUSIC , set back in your favourite chair , with a large glass of your favourite libation and , ENJOY !Accept it for what it is , a celebration of life by MUSICIANS, not recording engineers with fancy equipment and a big budget. Please give us MORE !!
Ok , here is my one gripe ! Jerry Douglas should have had more stage time , but then as far as Jerry is concerned I am opinionated . By the way , lovers of Resonator Guitar should check out a cd entitled " The Great Dobro Sessions " featuring most of Americas great resonator players .
Regards
Mike.

So much has already been written about "O Brother" and its live companion release
"Down from the Mountain," and it's difficult to pin down what exactly made them
so popular - and so good. But I think it really comes down to two things:
First, variety. "O Brother" and "Down from the Mountain" cover almost every
branch and tributary of early American music (besides jazz). In contrast to many of
the "O Brother" copycats, the selections aren't just country, and they aren't just
bluegrass. Instead, they run the early American gamut from folk, to bluegrass, to
country, to gospel, to blues.
Second, modern production values. Most of the "original" versions of these songs
were recorded by semi-professional musicians on primitive recording equipment.
As a result, they don't generally have the clarity, warmth, and richness of these
reverent updates.
But, whatever the reason, "O Brother" and "Down from the Mountain" will remain
a treasured part of my collection. Every American should hear these masterpieces.
