I was streaming the soundtrack yesterday on the new Amazon hirez service and was involuntarily stomping my foot to "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" and several others.  The duet with Dylan and Johnny Cash on North Country Fair was simply sublime.

I'll tell you who is superb!

Patsy Kline! Even if she is a little hard to look at. And Willie Nelson wrote "Crazy"!

And I'm not a C&W fan!  :popcorn:

I've watched the first 4 episodes so far. It is definitely worth watching.

I think this showed up last June on the Dust-to-Digital site with the tag "Remembering June Carter Cash, born 90 years ago today in Maces Spring, Virginia. Here she is in the late 1950s singing “It’s My Lazy Day” with The Carter Sisters & Mother Maybelle."  I love it because she is so comfortable with her gift and has so much fun with this old simple song.
