Overview

It has been a decade since one of the most unlikely successes in music history was released. O Brother, Where Art Thou? is one of the 10 top-selling soundtracks of all time with more than nine million albums sold. This expanded 10th-anniversary release celebrates with a two-CD deluxe edition.

The album that rocketed bluegrass, roots, and even Americana from the 20th century into the new millennium features a 14-track bonus disc. Twelve of these newly released songs were recorded during original sessions for the film, most of which went unheard on-screen. This release marks the first time these tracks have been made available in any format.

The second disc of the O Brother, Where Art Thou? - Deluxe Edition features artists who appeared on the original album (John Hartford, Norman Blake, the Fairfield Four, the Cox Family, and the Peasall Sisters) plus some who did not (Colin Linden, Alan O'Bryant, Ed Lewis, and Van Dyke Parks). The disc's previously recorded tracks are "Tom Devil" by Ed Lewis and the Prisoners, and "I'll Fly Away" by the Kossoy Sisters. From the Label
