O Brother Where Art Thou? Soundtrack Re-issue Coming This Week [VIDEO]

Sometimes, a movie comes along where the music and the story come together perfectly; Joel and Ethan Coen’s 2001 masterpiece O, Brother Where Art Thou? is one of the best of the past decade.  Not only did the film gross more than respectable numbers, its soundtrack became the breakout star.  The soundtrack made of old-timey, roots music won Grammys in 2001 for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for “Man of Constant Sorrow” by Dan Tyminski, Harley Allen, and Pat Enright (or George Clooney, John Tuturro, and Tim Blake Nelson on-screen), Best Male Country Vocal performance for Dr. Ralph Stanley’s “O Death” and the soundtrack won for Album of the Year.

In store this week, will be a re-issue of the original soundtrack, with a bonus disc that will include several performers on the original soundtrack; Van Dyke Parks, Norman Blake, The Fairfield Four, The Peasall Sisters (I saw them a couple of years ago at the Master Musicians Festival outside of Somerset, they rule!), and two previously unreleased tracks from the late John Hartford.  Not only is the re-issue coming, the film will be released for the first time on Blu-Ray on September 13th.  I really need to get one of those Blu-Ray players.  Here’s a sample of the great music you need to hear again or maybe for the first time:
