Product Description

Product Description

Here are 16 tracks highlighting Alison Krauss' career outside of her traditional releases with long time band Union Station. The album features Krauss' collaboration with John Waite on the single, "Missing You". Billboard Magazine writes of the song, "…vet Alison Krauss adds a newfound tenderness to the ironic lyric 'I ain't missing you at all/No matter what I say.' Her vulnerable vocals, as ever, add ache to the familiar track…" This album also features Krauss' contributions to film soundtracks including the Oscar® nominated songs, "The Scarlet Tide" and "You Will Be My Ain True Love", written for the motion picture Cold Mountain and "Down To The River To Pray" from the film O Brother, Where Art Thou? Known for her collaborations, Krauss also includes several duets in the collection such as the 2003 hit with Brad Paisley, "Whiskey Lullaby" and her duet with James Taylor for the tribute album to The Louvin Brothers, "How's the World Treating You". The collection also debuts five new songs, all of which feature Krauss as a producer. Tracks: You're Just A Country Boy (previously unreleased) / Simple Love (previously unreleased) / Jacob's Dream (previously unreleased) / Away Down The River (previously unreleased) / Sawing On The Strings (from the 2004 CMT Flame Worthy Awards show) / Down To The River To Pray (from the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack) / Baby Mine (from The Best of Country Sing the Best of Disney) / Molly Ban (from The Chieftains’ Down The Old Plank Road: The Nashville Sessions) / How's The World Treating You (duet with James Taylor – from Livin’, Lovin’, Losin’: Songs Of The Louvin Brothers) / The Scarlet Tide (from the Cold Mountain soundtrack) / Whiskey Lullaby (duet with Brad Paisley from his Mud On The Tires album) / You Will Be My Ain True Love (featuring Sting -- from the Cold Mountain soundtrack) / I Give You To His Heart (from The Prince of Egypt soundtrack) / Get Me Through December (from Natalie Mac Master’s album In My Hands) / Missing You (duet with John Waite – from his Downtown….Journey Of A Heart album ) / Lay Down Beside Me (duet with John Waite -- previously unreleased).

BBC Review

Astonishingly, although she is only in her mid-30s, singer, musician, and bluegrass prodigy Alison Krauss has now been recording for twenty years, both as part of the band Union Station and as a solo artist. This new compilation highlights her work away from Union Station, with a particular emphasis on her collaborative work. It also does the job of rounding up a number of rarities and guest spots that fans might otherwise have more trouble acquiring, although this is not to suggest that the collection is some kind of rag-bag; the quality is uniformly excellent throughout, and nowhere more so than on the four unreleased tracks that head up the compilation, 'You're Just A Country Boy,' 'Simple Love,' 'Jacob's Dream' and 'Away Down the River,' all of which display the multi-award-winning Krauss's production flair.

Newcomers might know Krauss best from the soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou? That film's 'Down to the River to Pray' is included here along with other soundtrack work including 'You Will Be My Ain True Love', collaboration with Sting from Cold Mountain. Other guest artists featured here include James Taylor, the Chieftains and John Waite. The selection of tracks ranges from bluegrass ('Sawing on the Strings'), country and folk to the rock-pop of Waite's 'Missing You' (the re-recording is another of the album's highlights), but is always held together by Krauss's high, strong voice and her rootsy integrity. Often aching and vulnerable, always beautiful, these songs form an excellent companion to her earlier compilation, Now That I've Found You and the album is definitely one you will want to put on repeat. --Tim Nelson

Alison Krauss has a habit of making fantastic albums. I once read a review somewhere that said 'she could sing the phone book and it would sound beautiful.' Despite this ability to sing anything well, Alison's choice of songs is always of the highest standard.

This album is a compilation of tracks, previously released for movie soundtracks and where she has featured on other artists albums. Fans will find it is similar to her mid nineties release 'Now That I Found You.'

Tracks include songs from movies such as 'O' Brother,' 'Cold Mountain,' and 'Prince of Egypt,' all of which I was aware she has recorded.

Then there is a whole heap of tracks that I was unaware she had recorded, including a superb duet with John Waite covering the song 'Missing You.' A pop standard that proves the phone book theory.

For me though the stand out tracks are Alison's interpretation of a Don Williams classic I'm Just A Country Boy, where Alison changes the perspective to You're just a... Like Lyle Lovett's interpretation of the Tammy Wynette classic 'Stand By Your Man,' it works really well. My other favourite has to be yet another Don Williams classic (both originally sung and wrote by the man) 'Lay Down Beside Me,' where she duets again with John Waite. Their voice working so well together.

This is a solid album full of strong tracks that even as a compilation outshines many new releases today.

An absolute essential for any Alison Krauss fan and a recommended for any one who wants to be.

This is a lovely album, though quite different from what we normally get from Alison Krauss. Do not expect a bluegrass album, though one or more members of the superb Union Station appear on 10 of the 16 tracks. The lively hoedown 'Sawing on The Strings' is the nearest we get to a bluegrass song, with twin fiddles from Alison and Stuart Duncan. The brilliant Jerry Douglas appears on 6 of the tracks, and I was particularly taken by his lap steel sound on tracks 2 and 16. None of the songs here have appeared on any of Alison's own albums. Some will be familiar to many, however, particularly 'Down To The Valley To Pray' from 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?', sung a cappella with a choir of mostly well-known names billed as the First Baptist Church Choir Of White House, Tennessee. There's also 'Molly Ban (Bawn)' from The Chieftains' album 'Down The Old Plank Road: The Nashville Sessions', the atmospheric 'The Scarlet Tide' and 'You Will Be My Ain True Love' from the film 'Cold Mountain', and 'How's The World Treating You', a duet with James Taylor I first heard on a tribute album to the Louvin Brothers. Also perhaps familiar to some will be Alison's duet with Brad Paisley on 'Whiskey Lullaby', a country hit for Jon Randall, who co-wrote the song with veteran legendary songwriter Bill Anderson. This is one of those typical stone country songs that seem rather maudlin to my UK ears. It has a strong melody and is here sung sincerely and without irony. There are 5 new songs, tracks 1, 2, 3, 4 and 16, all extremely good, which to me make an otherwise very good album into an essential one for any fan of Alison's music. The album starts and ends with 2 songs associated with Don Williams, here given a beautiful, slower reading. Alison's distinctive, expressive voice makes them sound as if they are brand new.Read more ›

"Alison Krauss's voice is a technical, emotive marvel. She has won more Grammy Awards than any female singer in popular music history. She fronts what many people consider to be the single finest band in folk, bluegrass or country. Every album she has released in the past twelve years has been certified gold (500,000 copies) or platinum (1 million copies)." Stephen Erlewine Thomas.

This is a CD that draws you in and like my best friend uttered in reverence, "I get shivers listening to this CD". The CD is a compliation of collaborations with other singers, songs from soundtracks and award shows and five new songs. There are traditional sounding songs and songs that are difficult to classify, but they are all connected. "There's alot of dying, said Alison. "I think with really sad songs, sometimes they make people feel better. If the story is that bad, there was something really spectacular there before the bad thing happened. There was something good to lose."

There are sixteen songs on this CD, and they are all beautifully poignant, mastered, and sung.

'You're Just A Country Boy'- a new song, melodic, lovely tune, "All you can afford is a loving heart, the only one you own'.

'Simple Love'- simple,country, bluegrass tune- previously unrecorded.

"Always giving, never asking back, I wish I had a simple love like that".

'Jacob's Dream- "In the Spring of 1856, two children, lost, cold and forlorn in the mountains." A song passed down by one of the writer's grandmother's from generation to generation. But, there is inherent hope. Hope and comfort. The song that brings 'shivers' everytime it is heard. My absolute favorite song, sung by Alison Krauss.
