There was more than a little magic in the air when three of the most transcendent voices in American music came together for the first time. The potent pipes of Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Ronstadt blend with an almost otherworldly glow. On Trio, they tackle a mix of vintage country, classic pop (Phil Spector’s “To Know Him Is to Love Him”), and contemporary tunes from folk-rockers Linda Thompson and Kate McGarrigle for a feel that's simultaneously elegant and earthy.
A Perfect 10!!!
This is one of the best country albums of all times. When you first think about it, Dolly, Emmylou, and Linda seem like an odd combination, but when you hear them sing together, it makes perfect sense. This is an example of how sometimes artists can draw out the very best in each other. In this case, they are like three shades of the same color, and every song is too perfect for me to ever adequately describe in this review. Buy it. You will listen to it over and over just like I have been doing since 1987.
not a surprise....
if you go back to the 70's and listen to these ladies albums they all sing back ground vocals for each other. Dolly sings on Linda, Linda sings on Emmy, Emmy sings on Dolly...they were known as the Trio for years before they ever did an album all together singing in their incredible ability to meld their voices together and make timeless and beautiful music....good stuff!!!!!!
one of my favorites
This album reminds me of my beloved aunts and my childhood. Every year my mother and I went on "girl" trips which included all of her sisters. We listened to this album repeatedly and I grew to love it as much as they did. I still find myself listening to this album. The harmonies are terrific, the songs are poignant. One of the best albums I have ever owned.
