Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered two CD release from the Bluegrass/Country legends. On the first disc is the original Satan Is Real album, their Southern Gothic masterpiece from 1959. Inspiring generations with some of the finest harmonies ever recorded, this Louvin Brothers classic is an angelic combination of high lonesome Country and dark Southern Gospel. On the second disc, Handpicked Songs 1955-62, stars of Country, Rock, Folk and more pay homage to The Louvin Brothers by handpicking a track each for this brilliant compilation of archive Louvin Brothers recordings. Each track is performed by The Louvin Brothers. The full list of handpickers includes Mark Lanegan, Graham Nash, Beck, Emmylou Harris, Will Oldham, Lucinda Williams, Jim James, Kris Kristofferson, Devendra Banhart, Chris Hillman, Zooey Deschanel, the Black Angels, Dolly Parton and M. Ward.

Format: Audio CD
What an intriguing concept: 14 original Louvin handpicked songs coupled with the classic and remastered "Satan Is Real" album that's considered a high point in country gospel and by some the pinnacle in all the Louvins did. There's only one double: Are You Afraid To Die (Handpicked by The Black Angels). Half of the handpicked songs are in other collections (Knoxville Girl, Cash on the Barrelhead) but another seven are great and out of left field: The Great Atomic Power (Handpicked by Beck); I See A Bridge (Handpicked by Emmylou Harris). Together a great two albums put together by Light In The Attic.

This CD provides an excellent synopsis and perspective of the music of the Louvin Brothers. While their style was definitively country, the duo has been credited far outside the country music community as having influenced other vocal duos and groups. Many of today's singers and vocal groups, both "popular" and "rock", identify the Louvins as having had important influence on their respective vocal styles. While the Louvins may not have been the first to practice tight harmony vocals, they probably were the first to be recorded with wide distribution of their albums and to have become relatively successful commercially. As a result, the Louvins may have been the first examples of this tight harmony vocal style to have been "heard" by large numbers of people on the radio or via their recordings.
Several commercially successful musicians in the decades following the success of the Louvins, including some contemporary musicians, credit the Louvin's as having been an early influence on their respective vocal styling. Examples include the Everly Brothers, the Bee-Gees, Paul Simon (Simon and Garfunkle) and Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills & Nash). This CD pair provides multiple examples of the roots of what we often hear today in many sibling harmony approaches in both pop and rock music - by both the Louvins and others - but be aware, the songs of the Louvin Brothers were pure "country" in their original vocal renditions. And, often there is also a religious hymnal flavor to their songs - but in any case, the simplicity and purity of the tight harmony that was their trademark is amazing to hear.
