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.
This is where to start...
This is the album to buy to begin your Emmylou Harris collection. The song choices are excellent and the production is perfect (crisper and more direct than that on "Luxury Liner", in my opinion). You get all that you would expect from Emmylou: heartbreaking, sighing vocals, perfect phrasing, and the amazing craft of her backing band. This album will make you a lifelong fan, and will be the first of many Emmylou albums you will want to own. If you've ever had a broken heart, just try to get through "Too Far Gone" without choking up...
she hasd such a pretty voice!
she has amazing talent! she is really pretty and her voice is crazy great!
A Beautiful Haunting Voice.
I've love Emmylou since I first stumbled onto this album in a record store in Kansas City of all places. Coat Of Many Colors was playing,I and remember asking the clerk who is that singing? He said it's a new singer by the name of Emmylou Harris. Well I decided to buy the album even though I'd only heard the one song,and I'm glad I did. Her pure voice brings added pathos to Coat of Many Colors and especially to Boulder To Birmingham . Hearing either one always brings a tear to my eyes. A great album by a great artist.
