Editors’ Notes

Paradoxically, Harris helped push country music forward in the 1970s by taking it backwards. Her music embraced the pristine sounds and starkly haunting sentiments of centuries-old Appalachian tunes, gospel standards and cowboy balladry. She applied these values (via her shiver-inducing, crystalline voice) brilliantly on 1977's Luxury Liner. Arguably her first full-realized album, Harris found the link between such diverse songs as the Louvin Brothers' poignant "When I Stop Dreaming" and Townes Van Zandt's latter-day outlaw ode "Pancho and Lefty." She kicks up her heels on her readings of Chuck Berry's "(You Never Can Tell) C'est La Vie" and the Gram Parsons-penned title track, making down-home rock sound as timeless as a mountain tune. Emmylou's soon-to-be legendary group The Hot Band plays lean, clean and scorching throughout. Luxury Liner is a milestone in Harris' artistic pilgrimage, an inspiring mix of old-time musicality and contemporary creative ambition.

Customer Reviews

Luxury Liner (Remastered) by Emmylou Harris

How pleased I was to find one of my favorite albums showing up again! For all the blessings the "O, Brother, Where Art Thou" soundtrack and "Trad-Country-Revival" it helped to re-spark; Emmylou Harris had been doing it all along! When "overplayed and overrated " acts like the Eagles and Linda Rondstadt pummeled the public with their "California-Country-Rock"; Emmylou and her underrated Hot Band were "keepin' it real" for us in college in Boston in the middle 70's! She made us want to go back and re-discover the Brothers Louvin and Everly, Graham Parsons and the Flying Burrito Brothers; Bob Wills and Texas Swing; fantastic stuff that no one was playing, not even on hip "college radio". A gourgeous voice, a National Treasure! Luxury Liner is a fine introduction to Emmylou Harris' musical gifts! Grimmbo


I have very eclectic tastes (ie: not a country or folk nut), and this is one of my all time favorite albums of all times. Emmylou has one of the most beautiful voices ever.... EVER.

I bought this LP in Izmir, Turkey in 1977. I played it almost daily. Her music on this album was crisp and clear. "You're Supposed to be feeling good" is a track I've hunted for. It and others helped me in my grief at the loss of my wife, coincidentally on Emmylou's birthday. A fan of her solo career since 1975, A woman, who like a fine wine, has become more beautiful with age.

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...
