This unique songbook features ten selections from the critically-acclaimed Coen brothers film, arranged in melody/lyric/chord format with guitar tab to be played by a wide variety of musicians. The traditional songs for this film were selected by T-Bone Burnett to capture the sound of the early-'30s South, and the movie soundtrack has done much to rekindle interest in the folk/blues/bluegrass/gospel genres. Songs include: Big Rock Candy Mountain (Harry McClintock) * You Are My Sunshine (Norman Blake) * Hard Time Killing Floor Blues (Chris Thomas King) * I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow (The Soggy Bottom Boys/Norman Blake) * Keep on the Sunny Side (The Whites) * I'll Fly Away (Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch) * and more. Includes many pages of great photos from the film.
