The prolifically exuberant six-piece is often defined by thrillingly wonderful live performances. Over the course of the band’s last five records, since they made waves with 2004’s O.C.M.S, there has been folk, breakneck bluegrass, Americana and varying styles to match their acclaim and awards. One thing that has remained consistent throughout is their devotion to honing their musicianship and reviving old classics. This, their ‘Best Of’ is a rather odd release, featuring songs from their three records with the label Nettwerk. For new converts or those yet to hear the brilliance of Old Crow Medicine Show, this provides a fitting introduction. There’s all out favourites such as opener Wagon Wheel usually reserved for the encore, the harmonica sway of Down Home Girl and the rousing folk of Take em Away. The country of My Good Gal and brilliance of Caroline are also not forgotten, while there’s two unreleased tracks to close. Black Haired Quebecoise has a typically witty chorus, and Heart Up in the Sky is another welcome addition to the back catalogue. If anything, a reminder of the great talent and energy of Old Crow Medicine Show.
