Description:
Various Artists: Garth & Maud Hudson. When one scans the panoply of artists who performed at two live concerts staged by Hal Willner in 1999 and 2001--highlights of which are collected here--one can begin to understand the far-reaching influence of Harry Smith's original ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN FOLK MUSIC. Artists as wide-ranging as Steve Earle, Sonic Youth, Garth Hudson, and Nick Cave pay tribute to the great American roots music archivist and his famed ANTHOLOGY. The array of star power on this two-disc is dizzying, and the performances no less so: Beck boogies through "Last Fair Deal Gone Down," Steve Earle's trademark grit perfectly suits "Prison Call Blues," Wilco's easy alt-country groove ambles through "James Alley Blues," and Sonic Youth finds the weirdness in "Dry Bones," one of the original collection's most memorable cuts. Other highlights include Richard Thompson and Eliza Carthy's stomping version of "The Coo Coo Bird," Nick Cave's "John the Revelator," and Marianne Faithful's beautifully subdued take on "Spike Driver Blues."

  • wish i hadn't

    do not bother. i bought this album/albums thinking i would have a great alternative view on the original harry smith recordings, boy what a waist of time. first of all the box set was expensive, even though it did come with a cool book and a couple of dvd's. it was a real let down. i sure it must of been cool to be at the concerts where these selected songs were recorded with todays pop/alt/indie stars, but do not waste your money on this expensive box set. do your self a favor and just buy the original harry smith anthology of american folk music. it is cheaper and you get the original artists with a bit of history thrown it. that is a much better way to go. overall i wish i would have stayed away from this "revisited" set, i would have saved close to $100
