This is an awesome soundtrack for the 2000 movie of the same name.
If you thought the award winning movie was great because of the cast ( George Clooney, etc.), then you only have half the "story".
The soundtrack, from veteran producerT-Bone Burnett, is equally impressive -if not moreso.
He assembled such an unbelieveable cast of performers for the sountrack. it is no wonder that performers like Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys (O'Death") were rewarded with individual Grammys.
All this and the unforgettable renditions of " I am a Man of Constant Sorrow" by the Soggy Bottom Boys.
If you pass this CD up, you are doing yourself and your collection a tremendous injustice.
