That has to be one of the best movies ever made, IMO for comedy and music.

I wonder why it takes Maggotwood to make a movie for folks to be exposed to good music that has been played and enjoyed for years by us nobodys?

And why in the world did they use George Clooney?Like using Jane Fonda to do a movie on P.O.W.'s.

I just never was exposed to it until then. Always listened to country so the closest I came was Ricky Skaggs and maybe Alison Kraus. Is there someplace I can buy one of your tapes or c.d.'s?

Oh lord we just play for fun,anything else makes it too much like work.Thanks for asking though.Logging and heavy equipment running has about ruined my dexterity and hearing,but it used to be lots of fun.Had alot of fun with good friends and good food!Hard to beat a cool Alabama night under a full moon,by a cracking fire,smelling a pork shoulder slow smoking over hickory coals,playing a good fiddle and drinking fine spirits!No sounds except what you want to hear.

Have the movie on VHS, the soundtrack on CD and saw/heard Down From The Mountain tour at Starlight Theater in Kansas City last summer. Seldom has there been such a collection of talent on one stage.

Several times. Driving to big town, 2 great nieces in back seat singing along with "Down to the River" and "Man of Constant Sorrows". I thought I was gonna die. A good memory.

The movie opened up a whole new worls of music for me. Now I keep looking for more like it.

Cindi, I thought I saw that you use AOL. Click on the radio above. Then country music, then bluegrass. You have no controll of the tunes but it is usually pretty good.

I thought the movie was goofy but the music great. You would also like Oh Sister and Down From The Moutain. Don't buy the concert version unless you like to hear fans screaming.

Are you talking movies? Or soundtracks? If the music is anything like what I saw in OBWAT, I want it.

I have the video Oh Brother and the CD. I also have the CD Oh Sister and Down From The Moutain. But Down from the moutin in concert and too much noise from the fans. Got them all cheap on ebay. And made copys for all my vehicles.

I was hoping someone would have the same opinion of that movie that I have! My sentiments exactly.

Ana - great movie!    Posted 03-02-2003 at 10:05:09       [Reply]  [No Email]
Loved the movie and the music. Who knew that George Clooney could actually act? :) But the movie was just full of good acting.

Cindi    Posted 03-02-2003 at 10:17:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
Right?! I've watched it at east two dozen times and I still laugh at it. The funniest part in my opinion is the.......'PULL OVER!!' All those guys did a great job, I hated John Goodman's character though. He wasn't bonafide! Lol!

Les    Posted 03-02-2003 at 08:05:36       [Reply]  [No Email]
Got the sound track CD right here at my puter. Haven't seen the movie. George Clooney, eh? Yuck!

Here's the song

Les....from Cindi    Posted 03-02-2003 at 10:37:32       [Reply]  [No Email]
Is your band going to do this song?

Cindi    Posted 03-02-2003 at 09:55:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
Oh, but you won't recognize him.......I don't usually like him either but whan he puts on that beard and sings 'man of constant sorrow'....mmmm....mmmm...mmmmm! I mean for me, anyway. I know he doesn't really sing it.

Just heard the music, that was good. Will have to rent it then.

Cindi    Posted 03-02-2003 at 07:46:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well, if you haven't seen it you are in for a treat. George Clooney was priceless in that. I hope you rent it today, it's a gift. I bought the soundtrack but my FIL liked it so much I gave it to him. P.S .....don't seek the treasure! You'll see what I mean.

Randy    Posted 03-02-2003 at 07:48:30       [Reply]  [Send Email]
