Album Notes
2 original albums on 1 CD: TRAGIC SONGS OF LIFE (1956) / SATAN IS REAL (1960).Liner Note Authors: Joe Allison; Keith Glass.Photographer: Keith Glass.Arrangers: Ira Louvin; Charlie Louvin.If the Louvin Brothers weren't the greatest harmony duo in the history of country music, their serious rivals were few and far between, and their best recordings are among the most emotionally resonant in American roots music. The Louvin Brothers also had a talent for concept albums that was unusual among country acts in the '50s and early '60s, and two of their very best LPs have been paired up on a single CD from the Australian Raven label. 1956's Tragic Songs of Life certainly lived up to its title, featuring classic murder ballads such as "The Knoxville Girl" and "Mary of the Wild Moor" side by side with more contemporary tales of heartbreak and poor fortune like "I'll Be All Smiles Tonight" and "What Is Home Without Love." While these songs could be pure bathos in less skillful hands, Ira and Charlie's crystalline harmonies and unforced sincerity find a rich vein of compassion in this music, and Ira's superb mandolin solos add to the eloquence of the melodies. 1960's Satan Is Real raises the stakes on the passion and force of Tragic Songs of Life, and it features some of the most intense and plain-spoken bluegrass-gospel ever committed to tape. Satan Is Real deals in no uncertain terms with the divide between good and evil and the notion that Satan is to be feared just as much as the Lord is to be embraced. "The Christian Life," "Are You Afraid to Die" and the title cut are ardent and powerful songs written by the Louvins themselves, and even if you don't share their Christian faith, the depth and genuine belief of this music is undeniable. As a bonus, Raven has closed out this disc with four additional songs, which thankfully lighten the mood with the rock & roll-influenced "Red Hen Hop" and the swaying "Blue from Now On"; the booklet also includes the original liner notes for both LPs. Tragic Songs of Life and Satan Is Real are the two best albums of the Louvin Brothers' career (though A Tribute to the Delmore Brothers is a close third), and this disc contains nearly 80 minutes of superlative music from two of country's most iconic artists; anyone not familiar with this music ought to treat themselves to this disc at their earliest convenience. ~ Mark Deming

These two classic, iconic albums from THE LOUVIN BROTHERS have certainly stood the test of time. Raven presents them on one brilliant CD, proving that Tragic Songs of Life (1956) and Satan is Real (1960) sound as thrilling today as ever. With their impassioned gospel themes, these two LPs capture the very essence of the brothers at the peak of their powers. Charlie and Ira's sublime harmonies and hard-driving take on traditional country provided the blueprint for future generations of country and rock musicians. From the enigmatic Gram Parsons and his protege Emmylou Harris to a long list of contemporary adherents (including Uncle Tupelo, Hank Williams III etc), the legend and influence of the Louvin Brothers continues unabated. Tragic Songs of Life contains some of their most powerful and emotive singing on 'Kentucky', 'Katie Dear' and the hit single 'Knoxville Girl'. With its striking cover and even more startling contents ('The Christian Life', 'Satan's Jeweled Crown', 'There is a Higher Power'), Satan is Real became a signature release for the duo. With four bonus tracks from the period, this outstanding value 2-for-1 CD delivers 28 of the very best from the brothers' deep catalogue of classic songs.
