Editors’ Notes

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.

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...
