Stretching across the traditional North-South delineation of America's original colonial core, yet linking them as firmly as a spine, the Appalachian Mountains have had a central role in American industry, culture, and politics for centuries. While PBS's documentary series examines every facet of that history, this 22-track soundtrack companion focuses on the region's impossibly rich musical legacy. Along with jazz and the blues, the music of Appalachia remains one of America's most primal and consistently influential (as evidenced by the revivalist successes of Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? cultural treasures. The collection performs a tricky tightrope walk between tradition and its contemporary echoes, and artists from Jimmie Rodgers (the sublime "Waiting For a Train") and the Cash and Carter clans to contemporary stars like Rickie Skaggs and Jason Ringenberg, yet its most compelling moments seem rooted not in recording studios, but the region's rocky soil. The Alabama Sacred Harp Singing Convention's haunting, African-rooted harmonies on "Northfield" and eerie a cappella of Maggie Hammon's "When This World Comes to an End" stand in stark contrast to the disturbingly frank musings of the Blue Sky Boys' murderous "Down on the Banks of the Ohio." These are but three of the highlights on this evocative anthology. --Jerry McCulley

Instrumental Title Theme "East of River Shannon"  Mar 22, 2006
The Appalachians Soundtrack is an authentic representation of the music of the Appalachian mountain people. Having had the rare opportunity to contribute to this collection of music for the PBS series, I'd like to make known my name, and where I can be found on the web, should anyone find my title theme of any particular interest. My name is Arlene Faith, writer of "East of River Shannon" (title theme for the series and soundtrack), which is not mentioned anywhere except in the tiny credits given inside the CD liner notes. All other references say only "instrumental". I'd like to thank many of you for contacting me after purchasing the CD, and hope that this will make it a little easier for others.

worth buying and wearing out  Jan 30, 2006
The Appalachians
Dualtone Records 80302-01201-2
Very Ken Burns. Faded sepia still photos come to mind, as do talking heads speaking from paneled, book-lined offices at the University of Tennessee. This is not a bad thing. Ken Burns has lured a lot of people into appreciation of and interest in the Civil War, baseball and other documentary topics. That this anthology is a companion piece to a public television series is better than okay -- it wouldn't have existed without it.
Affiliation with a themed broadcast series also kept producers' goals of sharing and educating in the forefront of decisions about what to include. The record never loses sight of Scotch-Irish musical roots, nor of the lyrical topics one would expect from ignorance and poverty, societal factors that do exist alongside us, just out of range of the CD player remote control.
It is a successful documentary, and easily worth buying and wearing out.
Wide ranging collection of Appalachian music  Sep 19, 2005
As central as The Appalachians are to American folk and country music, the stories behind the music are often forgotten. PBS' three-hour documentary presents both a chronology of U.S. settlement and the colorful historical figures who figured into it. This accompanying CD fleshes out the multithreaded musical traditions that eventually "came down the mountain" to inform today's folk and country traditions. This is a rich overview of American music's British roots, and the resulting sounds that emanated from the hills and hollars, including string bands, bluegrass, gospel, and shape-note singing. Legendary figures like Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family and The Blue Sky Boys are plated with contemporary artists that include Ricky Skaggs and Jason Ringenberg. It's the continuity of this directly voiced songwriting tradition that brands the collection as folk music, and keeps the history alive. [©2005 redtunictroll at hotmail dot com]
A great introduction to classic American mountain music  May 10, 2005
The exemplary companion album to a PBS television series, this features a wide range of Appalachian folk music, from stark, spooky "shape note" gospel singing to plunky old-time tunes and greased lightning bluegrass, with story songs and spirituals, murder ballads and laments for lost love -- all the styles and sentiments that make American mountain music so weird and wonderful and emotionally resonant. Many of the major players are on here: Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family (and June Carter Cash, keeping the tradition alive); bluegrassers like Mac Wiseman, David Grisman and the Osborne Brothers; old-school folkies like Jean Ritchie and Depression-era balladeers such as the Blue Sky Boys and Blind Alfred Reed, and even a few young'uns like Jeff Black and Jason Ringenberg to round things out... It's a nice set that spans the 20th Century and gives a well-rounded view of the rich musical heritage of a region that helped shape American popular culture.
Grandpa says the Appalachian Soundtrack is the "Good Stuff"   Apr 15, 2005
My grandfather has always told me whimsical stories of the family sitting around the fire, him with his old guitar, Gramma at the piano, sisters and brothers with shakers and fiddles, Aunt Nannybelle and her unwavering vibrato, having a hootenanny. As much as I have always loved these stories and much to my dismay, I could never get a grasp on what it really felt like to be there. I often asked Grandpa "What kind of music would you play? What songs?" His response was always the same: "Why, the good stuff, darlin'!" He never expounded upon this, and I imagined he spoke of hymns and traditional country tunes, until one day I gave up on the dream of experiencing a hootenanny in my mind. The Grandpa called. He said, "There's this CD. Goes with a movie, its called The Appalachians. That's it, darlin'. That's the good stuff." Listen to it. You'll see, Grandpa is always right.
