Overview

If bluegrass music is experiencing a surge in popularity of late that it hasn't seen in several decades, no small credit -- make that considerable credit -- goes to Alison Krauss and her peerless band, Union Station. Not even in her teens when she started her stellar career, Krauss has made a habit of flouting stodgy bluegrass conventions by applying her crystalline soprano voice and award-winning fiddle playing to risky covers of songs from the world of pop and rock music. But that doesn't mean she's disrespectful of the tradition. Now That I've Found You offers the best tracks from Krauss's first five albums, plus songs from other projects and previously unreleased material. Highlights include a radiant version of the Beatles' "I Will," recorded with banjo man Tony Furtado; the gospelish "When God Dips His Pen of Love in My Heart," recorded with the Cox Family; and two previously unreleased gems, a lovely, lilting take on the Foundations' infectious Top 20 hit from 1968, "Baby, Now That I've Found You," and a bluesy interpretation of Bad Company's "Oh Atlanta." Risky stuff but beautifully done.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Alison Krauss had been recording a decade before she gained stardom, but she became a star in a big way. Now That I've Found You: A Collection, a retrospective of her ten-year recording career for Rounder, became the surprise hit of 1995, rocketing to number two on the country charts and into the Top 15 on the pop charts, which is remarkable for a musician who had never captured the attention of a mass audience. It may have been a surprising success, but it also was deserved. Krauss was arguably the leading bluegrass musician of the late '80s and early '90s, pushing the music into new directions without losing sight of its roots. Now That I've Found You does a splendid job of chronicling her career, hitting all of the highlights and making a new listener eager to seek out her albums.
