v/a "A Mighty Wind" OST

You know this… it is the soundtrack to the Christopher Guest directed film about the folkies. I liked the film and remember liking the music in it, so I thought I would like this. But sadly, it turns out not to quite pack the same oomph, for all that the Mitch and Mickey tracks retain their poignancy and the other tunes are enjoyable pastiche. That said, the album is still worth getting (particularly at the price I paid for it) simply for 'Blood on the Coal', a song by the Folksmen about a train crash in a coalmine.
