Have only heard it once, but there's some great tracks on there. 'Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us' being my post-hearing favourite.

Check it out.

One of the tracks featured on a CD a mate gave me, otherwise I dunno if I would have checked it out.

I dunno if I'd been oblivious to the adverts beforehand and have only started to notice them now I've heard it, but I've seen it being bummed up quite a bit since.

Not sure who Alison Krauss is. Think Robert Plant was in a band or something once.

I heard one of the tracks on the radio, called Fortune Teller, and was mighty impressed by the rockabilly vibe- I didn't know who it was and was surprised when I heard it was them. I think I might investigate the CD further...

It's well worth it. As with all great male/female duet albums, the vocals just work fantastically off of each other

Mr Roque, she's not folk. Don't think she's ever done any folk stuff. The "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou" soundtrack is wonderful, though, and the new Coen Brothers movie is apparently the best reviewed movie of last year. Exciting stuff!

Talking of adverts and women (SEAMLESS), anyone heard Simone White's album? Her song 'the beep beep song' (CATCHY!) is in the Audi ad. Pretty good album if yer into that kinda thing!
