I'm just wondering why Sound Choice changed I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow from the original version. In SC's, after every verse they add a 4-5 measure-long instrumental that shouldn't be there. it not only adds a good minute to the song, but also makes the song lose some of the "constant-stream of lyrics" feeling.
Why the change? I thought SC always preached that they always remained true to the orignal artist.
I've heard the version SC used, so it wasn't a change that SC made. I would have personally used a shorter version, since anytime I sang it, I was ready for it to end (not to mention what the crowd usually thinks when I sing LOL).

Those little 4 bar sections are typically the difference between the album version as originally conceived and recorded by the artist and the version they make for radio play (edited), which is typically designed to remove any fat from the song.
That's why you see so many of our songs with the addition of "Radio Version".
With "Man Of Constant Sorrow", since it never received any radio play until way after the movie made it a hit, we copied the original album recording - true to the original song format.
