Album Review

The title of Rounder's Alison Krauss compilation A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection is a bit misleading. While it does contain previously recorded material, it is not to be taken as a greatest-hits package; rather, the 16 tracks are compiled from Krauss' numerous collaborations, soundtrack appearances, and other non-Union Station gigs. That said, it's as solid a set of material as one could want from the multi-talented Krauss. As a voice for hire, there are few singers with her emotional range, a gift she lends easily to the Elvis Costello-penned "Scarlet Tide" from the Cold Mountain soundtrack. Award-winning duets with Brad Paisley ("Whiskey Lullaby") and James Taylor ("How's the World Treating You") — the latter a Louvin Brothers cover — as well as collaborations with the Chieftains ("Molly Bán") from the legendary Irish group's Down the Old Plank Road: The Nashville Sessions) and Sting ("You Will Be My Ain True Love") make this anthology of oddities far from superfluous. A Hundred Miles or More also boasts five new cuts, including "You're Just a Country Boy," "Simple Love," the gorgeous "Jacob's Dream," "Away Down the River," and "Sawing on the Strings," the latter of which harkens back to early, more bluegrass-oriented Krauss.

Customer Reviews

a lot more than a hundred miles

Other than the facts, the above review might leave you a little cold, and I’m surprised they’re no customer reviews, I thought I’d be the last one on this boat. If you want to hear the best, with few peers, check this album out, I don’t care what genre of music you practice, it doesn’t matter when this girl starts singing. [Yo-Yo Ma even has recordings with her] I sound like a troll, I’m not, she is breathtaking.

Very sweet

Saw the movie and loved the music. Honestly I will never listen to this kind of music, but I fell in love with ms. Krause voice and Gillian's as well. Open up and the melodies will take you on a journey. See the movie first. Oh Brother were art though.

Good music

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Alison Krauss helped bring bluegrass to a new audience in the '90s. Blending bluegrass with folk, Krauss was instantly acclaimed from the start of her career, but it wasn't until her platinum-selling 1995 compilation Now That I've Found You that she became a mainstream star. Between her 1987 debut Too Late to Cry and Now That I've Found You, she matured from a child prodigy to a versatile, ambitious, and diverse musician and, in the process, made some of the freshest bluegrass of the late '80s and...
