EDITORS’ NOTES

The Coen brothers’ rollicking, Depression-era road movie reintroduced America to the beauty of its folk traditions, from the playful, lullaby-like melodies of “Big Rock Candy Mountain” to the eerie, minor-key delta doom of “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues” and the muscular but sorrowful chain gang chants of “Po Lazarus.” Dan Tyminski’s impeccably robust “I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow” makes the ancient standard shine like a polished brass bell, while Ralph Stanley’s show-stopping reading of “O Death” creates spine-tingling synergy between present and past.

Love this entire album!

I had almost forgotten about this album; it's been over 15 years since I first heard it. Then suddenly, as if something hit me, I was reminded and immediately searched for it. They will always take me back to times with my husband, who passed away, but with music that brought us so much joy. We used to sing the songs out loud; they are timeless, and will always touch the heart.
