At first glance, this looks like the first Rounder O Sister compilation - it has a similar cover, and there is plenty of bluegrass music, some of it licensed from Rounder, but that's where the similarities end.
This is a 40-track double CD and covers not just bluegrass, but mainstream country and folk, even including Maria Muldaur, Bonnie Raitt and two tracks by Eva Cassady. However, all these tracks are well chosen, and the overall result is a mostly acoustic album that (to my ears) flows very well.
Country and bluegrass are very much a minority taste in Britain, and this album is a clear attempt to give the music a higher profile. The inclusion of Eva Cassady helps, as does the inclusion of songs familiar to British pop fans via other versions. So you have Baby now that I've found you, Cathy's clown, Blue bayou, From a distance, Love can build a bridge and I will always love you - all huge British hits, though not for the artists represented here, even though three of them were the original artists.
An earlier reviewer (who does not like this compilation) points out that two of the songs feature male singers, but Sharon Shannon and Alison Brown are both star instrumentalists, so that's why they qualify.
Despite the inclusion of several Rounder tracks, none of the tracks here duplicate anything on O sister or O sister 2. However, three tracks were released on another British compilation (Tennessee mountain home - 23 bluegrass gems) which was only released a couple of months before this one, and which I've already reviewed.
To me, this is a brilliant compilation, but it does cover a range of styles, so if you're mostly looking for bluegrass, check the track listing before you buy. As that earlier reviewer pointed out, it spoils the effect if you have to keep hitting the skip button. Personally, I'll NEVER use the skip button on this collection. I love every track.

I bought this album because I loved O Brother & wanted to discover other music like this. To my surprise this is even better. Of the 40 tracks i was amazed to discover there was only two I did not think were superb. The openeing track from the Cox family is truly wonderful & if you have ever bought an Eva Cassidy album you will love it. Next comes Alison Krauss & Emmylou Harris - can it get any better. Amazingly yes...absolute gems from O Susana, Lynn Miles, Rhonda Vincent,Hazel Dickens,Bonnie Raitt, Forrester Sisters,& Dolly Parton's fantastic cover of "Cash on The Barrelhead" - made famous by the genius Gram Parsons. Her career has had an amazing renaisance recently. I am not a massive fan of Linda Ronstadt but Blue Bayou is great & the two tracks from Eva Cassidy are probably her best. Add in Nanci Griffiths, Maria McKee,Mary Chapin Carpenter,et al - Wow..you wont find better. You even get Jackson Browne singing the Lead of "Man of constant sorrow" to Sharon Shannon's incredible playing. A hidden gem amongst so many jewels. My best purchase of the year.

Promising two full CDs of 'the best in country, folk and bluegrass', I was curious to see the range of styles on this CD.
It's a real mixed bag, much less traditional than the film soundtrack whose name it emulates, and much more skewed to the Country/Bluegrass angle. It seems to me that the real purpose of this album is to (a) cash in on past artists' back catalogues, or (b) push some of the new acts coming through from the Warner stable.
On face value, it's a great price for a double CD - but then the true value of a CD should include it's utility value, and a CD that has you putting your book down and crossing the room to press 'skip' every other track is actually a little irritating. There is some gold on this album though: The Cox Family get the CD off to a cracking start, Alison Krauss' "Baby, now that I've found you" (the old Foundations hit) is wonderful - Bonnie Raitt's "Love Has No Pride" is possibly one of the archetypal country love songs. Eva Cassidy's version of "Fields of gold" - well, we've all already heard it and I think it's fair to say it's a beautiful reading.
Disc two is darker, and has it's highlights - Gillian Welch chucks in a mournful acapella, Maria McKee produces a near definitive version of 'Wayfaring Stranger' and Oh Susanna's 'Sleepy Little Sailor' is about as dark and twisted as the album gets. If there's one act on here that I had to select as the most interesting, it'd be these.
"Every day I write the book" is the Elvis Costello cover, far superior to the original - but this brings me to another gripe. Why, on a CD dedicated to women in country, do we have two tracks sung by men? I'm sure the compilers could have found space on here for Lucinda Williams, Shawn Colvin or another track by Emmylou Harris.
