The Civil Wars & T-Bone Burnett : A Place at the Table

You read that right. The soundtrack to the American hunger documentary, A Place at the Table, is a collaboration by The Civil Wars and T-Bone Burnett. And it’s every bit as magnificent as you want it to be. Especially of note is “Long Time Gone,” which you can hear below. The song beautifully marries The Civil Wars’ melodic country-folk sound with the thunderous Western rumble that has become T-Bone Burnett’s trademark. I do wish there were more vocal tracks like it, but the nature of the soundtrack demanded an overabundance of instrumentals.
