2008 reissue. Originally released in 1999 and widely regarded as one of the best albums of that year, New West is proud to reissue one of Steve Earle's finest works. The Mountain marks a radical departure from Steve Earle's previous works as it was his first wholly Bluegrass album. He later revealed that he had made the album as a tribute to the founder of bluegrass music the legendary Bill Monroe, who had died in 1996. In order to help flesh out the songs he had written for the album, Steve Earle called upon the famous Bluegrass band of Del McCoury. The album was a critical success and yielded Earle's seventh Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album in 2000. 14 tracks. New West.

"I really can not put into words how awesome this collaboration is, but I'll try. Steve Earle, the man who did such albums as Guitar Town (Remastered)(Bonus Track) and Copperhead Road, has reinvented himself several times over the years. His first albums had a rockabilly Johnny Cash / Bob Dylan type feel to them, but this is Bluegrass music at it's finest.
Teaming up with The Del McCoury Band who did such albums as Del and the Boys was a move that produced some amazing results. I love this album; it has that old time sound that harkens back to the days of country legends such as Bill Monroe, Flatts & Scruggs, and The Carpenter Family. There isn't a throw away tune on this whole CD. Every song is a gem. If you like Union Station or Kentucky Thunder and you don't have this album in your collection then you're missing out. Do yourself a favor and pick this up; you won't be sorry."
