5.0 out of 5 stars Stop here, this is the Alison Krauss album you want September 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you're just now reading a review of this six-year-old album you're probably a non-bluegrass fan like me who has just stumbled on Alison Krauss' amazing voice (thank you Coen brothers). So you're clicking through reviews to get a feel for an album that might appeal to you, well stop here - this is the one you're after.
As the title says this is a collection. It's perfectly paced from song to song and gives a full view of the range of AK's talent. There's bluegrass and standards and even gospel. For me the highlight of the album is the relatively obscure and simple Beatles song "I Will", AK's treatment of this just breaks your heart. The title song never sounded better anywhere, in fact I never cared for it until I heard it here. And Alison's classic "Every time you say Goodbye" makes bluegrass fans out of us non-believers. It's hard to leave a song out of the review, I find myself humming the pure bluegrass "Teardrops Will Kiss the Morning Dew" as I type.
Not a dull moment on this CD, not a song not to like. Alison's confident yet sweet soprano puts life and warmth in every song and she's backed on most songs by the talented Union Station and by her own incredible fiddle.
So you can stop sifting through the reviews, this is the Alison Krauss ablum you're looking for. This album may help you, like it has me, discover a delightful slice of American music you've been missing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Listening August 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Alison Krauss is definately a classy lady. I think this compilation is a well rounded effort which shows the multidimensional artist that is Alison Krauss. Whether she's on a tribute album, with Union Station, solo, producing, there always seems to be magic in the studio. NOW THAT I FOUND YOU: A COLLECTION gives listeners 3 new songs, 4 songs from tribute albums, and the rest from her past albums. First new song is "Now That I Found You", featuring as usual stunning vocals and beautiful instrumentation. We also have "Oh, Atlanta" and "Broadway" which are also new, and great songs. Probably one of her best known tribute songs was for the Keith Whitley tribute album, her and Union Station's cover of "When You Say Nothing At All". Keith would be proud. Elsewhere on this cd we have "I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby", "Tonight I'll Be Lonely Too", "Every Time You Say Goodbye", "Sleep On", "I Will", and many more. Overall this compilation should satisfy the biggest fans, and the ones who are just introducing themselves to Alison's music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Intro to Alison & Bluegrass October 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Alison Krauss, along with her band Union Station, is probably the best-known bluegrass artist currently recording. "Now That I Found You: A Collection" is a compilation of Alison's early work along with some new music. Even though she was only 23 when she released this CD in 1995, Alison had been recording since she was 16. Her pure voice shines through, and the songs are consistently excellent; however, three of them are real standouts.

"Baby, Now That I've Found You" is my favorite selection and simply one of the catchiest songs I've ever heard. Whenever I hear it, the tune gets imbedded into my mind and plays on a continuous loop for days. The song was originally a #11 pop hit in 1968 for the Foundations, who are perhaps better known for "Build Me Up Buttercup." It was only a minor country hit for Alison (#49 in 1995), although it netted her a Grammy for Best Country & Western Vocal Performance - Female. "When You Say Nothing At All" is Alison's biggest country hit, having peaked at #3 in 1995. What makes its success all the more amazing is that it was a #1 hit just seven years earlier for Keith Whitley. It's clearly become one of Alison's signature songs. The final standout for me is "I Will" written by those great bluegrass artists - Lennon and McCartney! Only a tremendous talent like Alison could make a Beatles song into a bluegrass masterpiece.

This CD was an unexpected hit - selling more than 2 million copies. It also helped Alison win 3 major Country Music Association Awards in 1995 - Horizon (best new artist), Female Vocalist, and Single of the Year for "When You Say Nothing At All." I'm by no means an expert on bluegrass, and I admit that most of the bluegrass CDs I own feature Alison Krauss. However, I certainly recognize quality music when I hear it, and "Now That I Found You: A Collection" is outstanding contemporary bluegrass. Most highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars On a scale of 1 to 5, this is a 10! July 17, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Even though I tend towards classic rock as my main musical interest I had heard comments about Alison and her lovely voice and finally decided to check out this album, thinking it was a "greatest hits" album. It isn't: it's a retrospective of her career with a few wonderful new songs added as well. It demonstrates her development as an artist and the wide range of her musical abilities. Most of all, it is a truly enjoyable album.
This album has sold over two million copies and went to the top 15 of the pop music charts and number 2 on the country charts--which demonstrates that her music has wide appeal yet is hard to pigeonhole into one category. Alison and her band Union Station have won a total of nine Grammy awards (so far) in at least three categories (country, bluegrass, and gospel)--and they're still going strong. Yet, putting her into just those three categories still doesn't adequately describe her music: she is truly a unique perform! er.
Part of her uniqueness is that she's achieved her success just by being herself and doing it her way--rather than the usual commercialized way. She is so down to earth in concert you feel like you are listening to her in a park with some friends or could ask her out for coffee afterwards without reservations. She has not bought into the hype and commercialism of the modern music scene; I almost think she wouldn't care about the money, as long as she could still make the music she enjoys--and does SO well.
She has the most angelic, passionate, and achingly lovely voice I've ever heard. I frequently suffer from deep major depression, and Alison's singing is one of the few things that can still touch me in the midst of that.
