Featuring performances by the cast-themselves, the Walk the Line soundtrack won Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media at the 2007 Grammy® Awards.

    Seems odd that they'd bring this out two years after the original release, but still, looks like a nice release. Glad it's got a DTS track.

    Yeah you're right.

    Perhaps it might have something to do with his role in We Own The Night.

    He was simply awesome in that role

    Any indication anywhere of whether Mangold was involved in assembling this new cut? If not this sounds like just another cash-in.

    Well, he does commentary for it so that's something of an endorsement even if he wasn't personally involved in making the longer cut.
