Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Earle Does Mountain Music With Del McCoury July 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Alex... I'd like to buy another star, please." March 16, 2013
Format:Audio CD
At this point in their careers both the Del McCoury Band and Steve Earle were at the height of their powers. You don't have to 'try 'em out'... they're already road tested.

It's an odd combination in my view. Steve Earle can flat rock your socks off or make you weep in his full-on singer/songwriter mode. The man has real soul. Del McCoury's outfit is maybe the finest working Bluegrass band I've ever heard. Every tune, every lick... tight as a tick. There is no slop in this band - they flat finish each other's musical sentences. The musicianship throughout this group is stellar with Ronnie McCoury possibly having the biggest profile outside the group. For instance, I have a Bluegrass mandolin instructional DVD by Ronnie McCoury, and when he breaks down his technique, you begin to understand what all the critical review hubbub is about concerning his playing. He is WOWIE good.

So, first, we have Mr. Earle inspired to write songs similar in feel and impact to those written and performed by Bill Monroe, the American granddaddy of Bluegrass music. To my ear, it's hard for me to discern whether these were written in the 30's and 40's or last week. One lyric refers to 'them AmTrac trains' so that's pretty recent, but most of these lyrics and melodies are going to stand up over time. They sure do for me as I've played this disc probably about 15-20 times and every time I'm literally carried away. (NOTE: it's particularly tasty at a very loud volume when you're out on the Interstate. This one will put 'some smiles in your miles', believe me.) Every time through I find some new interesting lick or how they featured an instrument to accent a piece of the lyric. It's just bulletproof when it comes to quality and seemingly gets better every time I play it.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Rate Blue Grass Album September 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a huge fan of country music so I'd never heard of the Del McCoury Band until I saw them perform on a PBS broadcast of a concert featuring artists who had performed on the soundtrack of the movie Brother Where Art Thou.

I really enjoyed the Del McCoury Band's concert performance on this PBS show so I went looking for some of the band's CDs. I came across this collaboration with Steve Earle, whose early work, like Copperhead Road and Guitar Town, I was familiar with.

So I decided to take a chance on this one as an introduction to the Del McCoury Band. I'm glad I took the chance. This is a first rate performance by both Steve Earle and the Del McCoury Band. After hearing this I'll be buying more Del McCoury CDs.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible talent that never disappoints September 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are few singer/songwriters like Steve Earle who consistently produce thoughtful, intellectually stimulating, and foot stomping music. This effort, together with the incredibly gifted Del McCoury Band satisfies on every level. Harlan Man, The Mountain, and Pilgrim are American classics. But then again, virtually everything on this album is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album December 23, 2008
By gtcaz
Format:MP3 Music
This is one of my favorite albums. From high-energy romps like Harlan Man, Texas Eagle, and Carrie Brown to the reflective ballad Pilgrim, this album is strong from start to finish. Del and the boys really add some great bluegrass muscle to Steve's songwriting talent.
