Though Emmylou Harris was Gram Parsons’ vocal partner for his pioneering country-rock records, progressive country was still a new idea when she made her official solo debut in 1975. So hearing Harris’ organic-but-otherworldly tones wrap around everything from honky-tonk (her sad-but-sassy take on Merle Haggard’s saloon-slinger “Bottle Let Me Down”) to Beatles tunes (a heart-stopping reinvention of the forlorn “For No One”) with equal grace must have seemed as unprecedented then as it feels timeless today.
While not everything she has made is top notch, Emmylou is one of the most consistent and high quality performers of American folk/country music. She has a voice that is frail, in a female, Araon Neville way. Her material is fantastically chosen proving her to be one of the best interpretative singers of her generation.
