 Notes & 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.
