O Brother, Where Art Thou? - Soundtrack      (1 of 3 found this review helpful)
  August 8, 2006

I agree with Tom - skip the first track and enjoy the rest. There are a couple of other tracks that sound "vintage" but the modern recordings range from more than adequate for SACD to top drawer. One standout is Allison Krauss singing the hymn "Down to the River to Pray." While I was a bit ... more
