Documentary Soundtrack - The Appalachians
Review By: Chris Macon 

Now, keep in mind that this review is coming from a Southern California native. A lot of my own musical taste lies somewhere between Pink and Reba McEntire, Shania Twain and Shedaisy. That said, this disc is fantastic. It was put together to complement "The Appalachians," a three hour, public television documentary, and features (among others) Johnny and June Carter Cash, Ricky Skaggs, and the Osborne Brothers. With twenty-two rootsy and organic tracks, I guess the only thing I can say, is that this is a record not to miss. Itís fittingly dramatic and representative of a culture both fascinating and beautiful. Keep a particular ear out for Jimmie Rodgerís "Waiting for a Train" and Alabama Sacred Harp Conventionís "Northfield." Awesome. (4 out of 4 stars)
