iTunes Review

Now in her ‘60s and a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Emmylou Harris doesn’t slow down for her latest collection, which features Harris in fine vocal form. She lends her interpretive gifts to the songs of others, both well-known and obscure, while sharing the microphone with a worthy rotating cast. Teamed up with old producer Brian Ahern, who produced her first 11 albums, Harris put him to the test, requiring him to align tracks from various sessions in Canada, Los Angeles and Nashville, including a drum track from the late Doobie Brother Keith Knudsen for the album’s touching opener, John Wesley Routh’s “Shores of White Sand.” For a well-lauded country artist, Harris is less traditional than her pedigree might suggest. While Ahern doesn’t attempt the modern-art ambience of Daniel Lanois or Malcolm Burn, he does employ a similar stillness, and Patty Griffin’s “Moon Song,” Mark Germino’s “Broken Man’s Lament,” and Tracy Chapman’s “All That You Have is Your Soul” have a chilling spiritual dimension to their performances.

Though other performers sold more records and earned greater fame, few had as profound an impact on contemporary music as Emmylou Harris. Blessed with a crystalline voice, a remarkable gift for phrasing, and a restless creative spirit, she traveled a singular artistic path, proudly carrying the torch of "cosmic American music" passed down by her mentor, Gram Parsons. With the exception of only Neil Young -- not surprisingly an occasional collaborator -- no other mainstream star established a similarly...
