iTunes Review

Emmylou Harris is one of those consistent talents incapable of recording anything less than a strong, competent album. Therefore it’s easy to overlook her extensive output and miss the peaks among the already high standards. A confident rocker such as “Heaven Only Knows” would be a stand-out on most performers’ albums, but here it coasts along like so much expected pleasure. John Hiatt’s “Icy Blue Heart” is such a towering achievement in his own hands that handed off to Emmylou the song leaves you speechless as the sentiments, and the vocal jump in the chorus, are without peer. Tom Rush’s classic “No Regrets,” the high point of his essential The Circle Game album, sits comfortably in the middle of this collection. Johnny Cash’s “I Still Miss Someone” nods towards Harris’ country roots. Harris’ own composition, “A River for Him,” shimmers with the grace and stillness of a winter’s night. Butch Hancock’s “If You Were a Bluebird” flirts with the Eddy Arnold standard “You Don’t Know Me” and adds a country flair.

Customer Reviews

Just a great record

I never tire of hearing just about every song here. A voice like no other. One might not appreciate the quality the first time they hear Ms Harris, but she has a haunting quality that you just can't quite name. Her vocal range can really be heard in the title track, Bluebird, and in Lonely Street.

Like all of us, she'll be gone one day. Thankfully that beautiful voice is preserved electronically, for all time.

A voice of perfection.....

I've been a fan of this voice since somewhere in the 70's but so many of these choice cuts just knock it out for me, having Bonnie Raitt singing with Emmy and playing that slide on Icy Blue Heart just before her Nick of Time breakthough was so impressive, two of my favorite voices blending with so much emotion. Lonely Street, No regrets, A river for him, Love is just many of the highlights to this late 80's collection, a keeper through the years.

Forgotten

My father loved Emmylou Harris, and it was he who introduced me to her when I was very young. I listened to her music almost incessantly while I was growing up, and even had the chance to see her in (my very first) concert sometime in the 90's when I was 7 or 8. Recently I looked her up again, and was surprised that I ever stopped listening to her. Her voice is unparalleled, her music beautiful, and her remakes masterfully executed. I suppose that I still feel her influence, for I have never been able to shake my love of a female fronted band. Emmylou Harris has been quite prolific since I stopped listening to her, so I have a lot of catching up to do. However, I doubt that that will be much of a chore.

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...
