Alison Krauss/Jerry Douglas: “I Don’t Believe You’ve Met My Baby” (1992)

Simply a beautiful rendition of an old chestnut made popular by the Louvin Brothers and others. This song brings to mind Bread’s early 70’s pop hit “Diary” for reasons that become obvious as you listen. And it is worthy of a listen. Nobody does this type of material better than Alison Krauss.

The song originally appeared on Jerry Douglas’ 1992 Slide Rule album. Then Krauss included it, along with several other stray side-project songs, on her 1995 Now That I’ve Found You compilation, which may be the most successful Bluegrass album of all time. It actually reached #13 on the U.S. pop charts, and was certified double platinum.
