From Amazon.co.uk

Down from the Mountain is a treasurable record of a unique event: a live concert from Nashville featuring the artists and songs from the Coen Brothers' film O Brother, Where Art Thou?. Anyone who was delighted by that enchanting film and its traditional Americana soundtrack will find this concert an irresistible delight. It's not just a rehashing of the songs from the film, however, but an opportunity for some of the finest names in Bluegrass to perform a variety of traditional songs. Here we have Alison Krauss, Gillian Welch and Emmylou Harris playing separately before coming together for an a cappella rendition of "(Didn't Leave) Nobody but the Baby". Bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley chills the spine with his lonesome "O Death", while bluesman Chris Thomas King wails "John Law Burned Down the Liquor Sto'". There are other marvellous performances from old-timey stalwarts The Cox Family and The Whites, more Gospel-infused singing from the Fairfield Four, and impressively authentic fiddling from John Hartford. Oddly, the only song not to be heard is the original film's standout item, "Man of Constant Sorrow". The concert is also available on CD.

On the DVD: The disc's packaging is misleading, as it only lists 12 songs when there are several more in the concert, all of which are listed and can be accessed from the menu. There's a good 25-minute backstage documentary also included, plus some liner notes from the Coens. --Mark Walker

Format: DVD
I bought this, along with the CD, after hearing some of the recordings on a now disbanded (more's the pity) country radio station in London; of particular interest was Dan Tyminski's 'Man of Constant Sorrow'. It was the music that introduced me to the film 'Oh Brother!' and not the other way around, which seems to be the consensus. The performances by Alison Krauss, Emmylou and Gillian Welch are mesmerising - I don't know which one I'm in love with most! Suzanne Cox has one of the sweetest voices I've ever heard (it's a close run thing with Alison) and is liable to bring a tear to the eye (for the sentimental among us).
John Hartford makes for a composed, dry humoured compere: "How many of yo'll DO NOT know who Ralph Stanley is?". I'm sure the 'guilty' were shrinking into their seats (here's your hat, what's your hurry?). It is evident from the audience how enjoyable this performance was. I must agree, to a large extent, with an earlier commentator about backstage flashes during performances being a cause of irritation. While they are insightful, Chris Thomas King's 'John Law' (a fantastic blues track) was ruined by them. A word of warning for Oh Brother fans: the film, somewhat surprisingly, doesn't contain Soggy Bottom Boys' Man of Constant Sorrow; it's on the CD. Nevertheless, this remains a very entertaining DVD and, from my point of view, a worthwhile purchase. The music is timeless and can be enjoyed over and over again.
Keep on the sunny side!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The inaccuracies (in content and order) on the packaging are irritating, but not as irritating as discovering from the end titles all the other songs that mysteriously failed to appear in the film itself. Presumably this is an edited-for-cinema version of the documentary/concert film, but it's also a huge missed opportunity, specially since the running time is comparatively short (the concert section runs only about an hour) and there are no other added features on the DVD. I wouldn't bother to make these points if the music that's actually here weren't so wonderful. There's nothing here that isn't joyful and treasurable, but the Fairfield Four's Po' Lazarus will make the back of your head prickle. It's all just about enough to stop me taking my complaint further. Five stars for actual content, averaged out with zero for all other aspects.

By Stef on 10 May 2011
Format: DVD
This dvd is a live concert featuring the music from the film "oh brother where art thou". Actually, I wasn't a fan of the film as such but did like the music. I saw this dvd at a friend's house and spent the next year trying to get hold of a copy!

It's amazing. It features some incredible artists and musicianship and is light-hearted and fun to watch. The more I seem to watch it, the more I see and hear and appreciate how brilliant they all are.

Allison Krauss has an astonishing voice, as does Gillian Welch and of course Emmylou Harris. John Hartford plays the fiddle like no other can and is backed up by some amazing musicians. There are light-hearted sessions from The Fairfield Four and the The Peasall Sisters and some brilliant deep south stuff from Allison Krauss and Ralph Stanley, as well as a stack of other stuff too.

My only complaint is that it's too short and should go on for several hours!

Saw the Concert on "SkyArts1" in the first place, and hunted down this DVD copy after some fortuitous internet research.
My brother and his (American) wife live in Florida, so Christmas and Birthdays are always a challenge, but this this DVD ticked a few boxes all at once, so well done to the vendors for serving up a Region 1 edition for me to send Trans-Atlantic to them!!!!!!!
(N.B: Hats off to Messrs. Krauss, Harris, Welch, Cox and Chris Thomas King who all deliver super individual and collective performances throughout this magical evening of music and song).
