iTunes Editors’ Notes

Forget the shag-carpet ambience, ignore the sometimes dated country-lite arrangements, and just listen to the woman sing: Quarter Moon in a Ten-Cent Town is the sound of a great musical talent coming into her own. From beginning to end, Emmylou Harris’s fourth album is a consistently satisfying, often transcendent example of all the things she’s still doing right, nearly 30 years later — impeccable song selection, a heavenly soprano whose wobble just plays up its poignance, and the most important of all, faith. Harris believes in every song she puts across here, and that conviction shows. Even an old-school weeper like Dolly Parton’s “To Daddy” sounds in Emmylou’s hands like the the one story she has to tell before she goes, and when she sings about killing the ghost of a no-good man (in the lovely, lilting “Easy From Now On”), wronged women everywhere turn that AM radio as loud as it will go. Quarter Moon came at the tail end of Rodney Crowell’s involvement with her Hot Band, but she still covers two of his songs, the Cajun-flavored classic “Leaving Louisiana” and “I Ain’t Livin’ Long Like This,” in which that angelic voice takes on a little roadhouse dust and comes out sounding all the better for it. Other highlights: harmonizing with Willie Nelson on “One Paper Kid” and tearing up the joint on Delbert McClinton’s rollicking “Two More Bottles of Wine.” Far more than just a way station on route to the traditional sounds of her later career, Quarter Moon is a masterwork in its own right.

Customer Reviews

Some really good music here

While not my favorite Emmylou album, definitely in the top 5. You should already know Easy From Now On, Two More Bottles Of Wine, and To Daddy. Digging deeper you'll find a great duet with Willie Nelson on One Paper Kid, a cover of Rodney Crowell's Ain't Living Long Like This (Emmylou rocks out!), + Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight. Nice listening!

Lovely!

This has songs you should already know and love and then some you're probaly less familiar with. I would say the songs you NEED from this album would be: Easy From now on, Two More bottles of wine, I aint liveing long like this, Burn that candle, New Cut road (Live) is greaaat!! and LaCassine Special (even though it's in french... it's great to listen to.) the rest are oki, but not as great as the rest..

This is undoubtedly my favorite Emmylou studio album. The most introspective and mature songwriting mixed with the most powerful emotions of the soul. This is good music even if you do not like country music. This album transcends all genres and feeds the emotional soul. She close out Hardly Strictly Bluegrass every year in SF and I never miss it!

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...
