Lost in the River was a band project by producer T-Bone Burnett. Together with Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Rhiannon Giddens, Jim James und Taylor Goldsmith he recorded the songs of the legendary sessions from Bob Dylan and The Band originally recorded in the late 60s near Woodstock. I wasn't sure if it will work to record these old songs (most of them never released on a record) 45 years later but I was surprised how good they work today. The group plays the songs not only, but interprets this in her quite own manner. I am sure that Bob Dylan would have arranged these songs in another kind. But exactly this puts out the charm of this record. From good songs become still improves made. Seldom the interpretations of old songs have as taken in me as these relaxed and with feeling interpreted songs.
