Get It
David Bradley | Sterling, VA USA | 05/17/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Like so many others, I hunted down this CD after hearing the Kossoy's version of "I'll Fly Away" in OH BROTHER WHERE ART THOU and finding a different version on the soundtrack. It was worth the time it took to track it down.The whole CD has that early-morning haunt sound of "I'll Fly Away." "Bowling Green" is great, as are "Poor Ellen Smith," "What Will We Do With The Baby O," "The Darby Ram" and, of course, the heartstopping "I'll Fly Away."This isn't quite bluegrass; it's mountain music with one foot in pre-civil war English/Irish immigrant tunes. Great stuff."
A nice find

"The Kossoy Sisters w Erik Darling blend aching harmonies with plucky, lively banjo to create a very earthy and satisfying listening experience. Of note is the version of "I'll Fly Away" (the version featured in the ACTUAL MOVIE O Brother Where Art Thou, but NOT in the soundtrack). Highly recommended. They don't make music like this anymore..."
Correct an injustice and buy this album

"The Kossoy Sisters version of "I'll Fly Away" as heard in the movie "O Brother Where Art Thou" is far superior to the Gillian Welch version heard on the album. Why the Kossoys weren't included on the multi-million seller soundtrack, unlike every other artist featured in the film, is still a mystery. But whatever the reason, it wasn't fair, so get this album if you loved that song and want to support these artists."
