Down from the Mountain (O Brother, Where Art Thou? Live)

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Like the riveting O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack that inspired it, Down from the Mountain is a celebratory and deeply moving affair -- a veritable revival meeting for fans of America's deepest roots music: country, bluegrass, folk, gospel, and blues. Recorded at Nashville's venerable Ryman Auditorium in May 2001 -- and captured on film for a documentary of the same name -- this 12-song concert disc reprises 4 songs from the O Brother soundtrack. But the nonfilm material is just as transportive, as every artist here digs deep into truly rich material. Alison Krauss and her Union Station cohort Dan Tyminski who dubbed George Clooney's voice in the movie are ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Like the riveting O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack that inspired it, Down from the Mountain is a celebratory and deeply moving affair -- a veritable revival meeting for fans of America's deepest roots music: country, bluegrass, folk, gospel, and blues. Recorded at Nashville's venerable Ryman Auditorium in May 2001 -- and captured on film for a documentary of the same name -- this 12-song concert disc reprises 4 songs from the O Brother soundtrack. But the nonfilm material is just as transportive, as every artist here digs deep into truly rich material. Alison Krauss and her Union Station cohort Dan Tyminski who dubbed George Clooney's voice in the movie are especially effective on the gritty "Wild Bill Jones" a showcase for Tyminski's rich, emotive baritone and in the beautiful blending of their voices on the haunting "Blue and Lonesome." Chris Thomas King who played bluesman Tommy Johnson in the film and his partner, Colin Linden, get low-down on the Delta-styled "John Law Burned Down the Liquor Store," which, in a nice bit of sequencing, is followed by Emmylou Harris's stately evocation of redemption in "Green Pastures." Elsewhere, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, the Cox Family, the Whites, Welch and Krauss, and the redoubtable Fairfield Four kicking off the show with a resonant a cappella take on "Po' Lazarus" offer powerful, indelible performances. And in an unexpectedly poignant moment, John Hartford serves up a delightful, jolly retelling of "Big Rock Candy Mountain," in what turned out to be his final recorded performance before his death in June 2001. Hartford's personable style is as timeless as the music herein. And that's saying something.
All Music Guide - Zac Johnson
Recorded at Nashville's historic Ryman Theater as a sort of a musical wrap party for the Coen Brothers' 2000 film O Brother Where Art Thou, this album offers live versions of several of the traditional American folk songs featured in the film, with a few additions along the same vein. Sounding almost like an all-traditional country episode of "A Prairie Home Companion," the guests including Alison Krauss, Dan Tyminski, the Whites, the Fairfield Four, and the Cox Family, among others amiably exchange songs on-stage, reveling in the atmosphere of warm country, bluegrass, and blues music. Highlights include two non-traditional tracks from Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, whose earthy compositions fit in seamlessly with the time-honored traditional songs, and Emmylou Harris' contribution "Green Pastures" which originally appeared on Roses in the Snow, her own Americana revival album from some 20 years earlier. Some of the songs don't fare as well, unfortunately, with musician/actor Chris Thomas King's "John Law Burned Down the Liquor Sto' " sounding a bit too faux-traditional, but hometown favorites the Fairfield Four more than make up for it with their hair-raising rendition of the work song/spiritual "Po' Lazarus." Of particular note is fiddler and folklorist John Hartford's cheery rendition of the hobo fantasy "Big Rock Candy Mountain," which proved to be his last recorded performance before his death nearly a year later. The concert is recorded so well that it is occasionally surprising to hear applause at the end of the songs; the performances are so nearly flawless it is easy to forget that this was a live recording. Fans of traditional American folk music and those who have enjoyed the O Brother soundtrack will not be disappointed.

    What a fabulous record!

    The best live recording I can recall. It one-ups the celebrated 'O Brother' soundtrack. Features the same performers as 'O Brother', only live. The performance is seamless; seems to be one continuous recording with no flubs by any of the performers. Sound quality is outstanding! The music itself is simply heavenly. This is THE catchiest bunch of songs I have heard in years! Buy and enjoy!

    down from the mountain

    In a world full of disposable artists and music, the down from the mountain cd is definitely different. It is bluegrass at its finest...with great collaborators like J.Carter & Prisoners, Harry McLintock, Norman Blake, Alison Krauss & Union Station, etc...its almost as good as the Obrother soundtrack except maybe its even better because it is live performances.

    best live performances

    After buying the soundtrack for o'brother where art though i became a huge bluegrass fan. When I heard they were touring I was excited, but unfortunately i was unable to attend a concert. When this cd came out, down from the mountain, i couldnt help but feel way excited because i knew the cd would be great. There is something about live recordings that make you feel like you were a part of an actual live performance. I recommend this cd to everyone who loves coutry and bluegrass, of any age, it would be greatly enjoyed!
