Last month, I wrote about the soundtrack from True Grit (Jan 11; Jan 12) focusing on its creative use of classic hymns, especially “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.” I mentioned how much I have enjoyed this album by Carter Burwell.
This isn’t the sort of album that demands your full attention. I have listened to it probably fifty times while exercising, doing busy work, or relaxing with some light reading.
My son informed me that you can download an MP3 version of this entire album from Amazon for only $5.00. I got mine from iTunes for $9.99, and have gotten more than my money’s worth. If you haven’t purchased the soundtrack, now you can get it for a steal. My recommendation: Buy it now!
