23 of 23 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 27 Feb 2003
Format: Audio CD
What makes this so special is the purity of Alison's voice and the quality of the music, some of which features Alison as instrumentalist as well as vocalist. Even though most of the songs are covers, they sound fresh and exciting.
The tracks are taken from various sources, including one from each of her own albums, but also including three previously unreleased tracks, plus other tracks that had not appeared on her albums. Even if you've got all Alison's other albums, you'll need this.
The set begins with a cover of the sixties pop hit, Baby now that I've found you. You may remember the original - a somewhat sad lyric but a very upbeat tune, which was a UK number one hit for the Foundations. Alison slows the song right down, in keeping with the lyrics.
The final track is a cover of When you say nothing at all, recorded for Keith Whitley's tribute album. This is a song that has spawned a number of covers, including Irish versions by Boyzone (who had a big British hit with it) and Frances Black. Even Frances cannot improve on Alison's version.
Between those two tracks are many other brilliant songs, including I will (from the Beatles' white album), Teardrops will kiss the morning dew (even better than the Billie Jo Spears version, which I think was the original) and the Lovin Brothers' I don't believe you've met my baby, later covered by Dolly on her Little sparrow album.
The O brother soundtrack, the various O sister compilations inspired by it and Dolly Parton's recent albums have all helped to increase the popularity of bluegrass, but this compilation pre-dates all of them and it was hugely successful. In any case, Alison herself appears on most of those other albums. So this is an important album in any collection of bluegrass music.

Having only recently found Alison Krauss, partly thanks to "Oh, brother where art thou", I'm now completly hooked. This collection is great for anyone who wants to try out her music.
There's a great mixture of her bluegrass roots, love songs and goespel types. The last track is truely brilliant and exposes Ronan Keating for the singer he is not. Try listening to "Oh, Atlanta" without tapping your feet - I challenge you!

A crystal clear and articulate singer, who manages to adapt to various styles, with a focus on bluegrass and country but she expands far from the often light touch of these styles, singing with pace and energy, with excellent instrumental backing.
The presentation is well staged and a fine CD recording, which allows AK to shine. Listen to track 12 with a touch of volume and you will be left speechless (Yes Ronan did borrow it from her - no comparison!!)-- a brilliant package of songs and I regard it as the 'starter' for anyone wanting to explore AK's music, as it is a collection of earlier works.
Also a superb addition for any fan of Eva Cassidy.

Alison Krauss is a wonderful singer, this CD is a great mix of impressive vocals and excellent acoustic guitar. I particularily liked track 12 (Ronan Keating eat your heart out) which is brilliant. Krauss is the best singer I have heard in a long while Tres impressive!

For all those people who have never heard of Alison Krauss ( where have you been? ), this is a great introduction to her earlier work without the burden of the occasional song by the "beards" who comprise her Union Station colleagues. For the most part she dispenses with her bluegrass fiddling roots and wanders into twilight reflection on most of these tracks. Taking you far away with tracks like "Baby, now that i've found you" and a ( dare i say it ) version of the Beatles, "I will" superior than the original. Its a wonderful album all round, so buy it, turn it up, turn the light off and enjoy.
p.s. Alison wasnt the first to record "In the palm of your hand" but her version is by far the best.

This classic song is so perfect for Krauss' voice; it's smooth, silky innocence lending itself perfectly to this wonderful romantic ballad. The rich,flowing sound of the violin break in the middle of the track complements Krauss' voice completely and sends you off into a total day dream. BREATHTAKING!!

Format: Audio CD
This is a mellow, sophisticated style of bluegrass music, not the famous "high wailing sound." Much of it could easily pass for Adult Contemporary or Easy Listening, like the song Broadway. Alison has a beautiful pure voice that makes every song special. My favourites include Teardrops Will Kiss The Morning Dew, which reminds me of Dolly Parton, and the gospely In The Palm Of Your Hand. But the greatest listening pleasure here is the wonderful dreamy story of I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby with the unexpected twist in its tale and its lilting, hypnotic rhythm. This is one of those rare albums with great tracks throughout, and Alison's voice is a great vehicle for conveying emotion.
