THE comprehensive collection of Emylou in the 1970’s! Featuring four of her studio albums (Pieces of the Sky, Elite Hotel, Luxury Liner, Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town, and Blue Kentucky Girl). Also included is her early holiday album,  Lights of the Stable. A fantastic collection of an artist in her prime.

Already celebrated as a discoverer and interpreter of other artists’ songs, 12-time Grammy Award winner Emmylou Harris has, in the last decade, gained admiration as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing. As well as leading a successful solo career, Harris has worked with a wide spectrum of musical luminaries, including Gram Parsons, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, Mark Knopfler, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young. A 12-time Grammy winner, she was also a Billboard’s Century Award recipient in 1999 and has been inducted into both The Country Music Hall of Fame and The Academy of Arts and Sciences. She was also named one of VH1’s “100 Most Influential Women in Rock and Roll.”

Emmylou Harris’ major-label solo debut quickly establishes the pattern that the vast majority of her subsequent work would follow: Pieces of the Sky is bravely eclectic, impeccably performed, and achingly beautiful. Amid a collection of songs that ranks among her most well-chosen – ranging from the catalogs of the Beatles (“For No One”) to Boudleaux and Felice Bryant (“Sleepless Nights”) and the Louvin Brothers (the hit “If I Could Only Win Your Love”) – the record’s centerpiece is one of Harris’ rare original compositions, “Boulder to Birmingham,” her stirring tribute to fallen mentor Gram Parsons.

Tracklist:
01 – Bluebird Wine
02 – Too Far Gone
03 – If I Could Only Win Your Love
04 – Boulder To Birmingham
05 – Before Believing
06 – Bottle Let Me Down
07 – Sleepless Nights
08 – Coat Of Many Colors
09 – For No One
10 – Queen Of The Silver Dollar

While Emmylou Harris spent much of her career carrying on the legacy of Gram Parsons, Elite Hotel ranks among her most overt tributes to his genius, thanks to its covers of the Flying Burrito Brothers’ “Sin City” and “Wheels,” along with “Ooh Las Vegas” from the Grievous Angel album. In addition to the usual eclectic mix of covers – which includes the Beatles’ “Here, There and Everywhere” and Hank Williams’ “Jambalaya” this time out – Elite Hotel offers renditions of the country perennials “Together Again” and “Sweet Dreams,” which were, respectively, Harris’ first two number one chart hits.

Tracklist:
01 – Amarillo
02 – Together Again
03 – Feelin’ Single – Seein’ Double
04 – Sin City
05 – One Of These Days
06 – Till I Gain Control Again
07 – Here, There And Everywhere
08 – Ooh Las Vegas
09 – Sweet Dreams

Luxury Liner ranks as Emmylou Harris’ best-selling solo record to date, and it’s one of her most engaging efforts as well; her Hot Band is in peak form, and the songs are even more far afield than usual, including Chuck Berry’s “(You Never Can Tell) C’est la Vie” and Townes Van Zandt’s painterly tale of aging outlaws, “Pancho & Lefty.”

Tracklist:
01 – Luxury Liner
02 – Pancho & Lefty
03 – Making Believe
04 – You’re Supposed To Be Feeling Good
05 – I’ll Be Your San Antone Rose
06 – (You Never Can Tell) C’est La Vie
07 – When I Stop Dreaming
08 – Hello Stranger
09 – She
10 – Tulsa Queen

Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town is a transitional effort that bridges the curveballs of Emmylou Harris’ earliest solo work with the more traditional country albums that comprise the bulk of the second phase of her career. For the first time, she covers no Gram Parsons tunes or pop music chestnuts, relying instead on newly exited Hot Band member Rodney Crowell for two songs (“Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight” and “I Ain’t Living Long Like This”) and Dolly Parton for another (the devastating “To Daddy”); the highlight is a gorgeous cover of Jesse Winchester’s “Defying Gravity”.

Tracklist:
01 – Easy From Now On
02 – Two More Bottles Of Wine
03 – To Daddy
04 – My Songbird
05 – Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight
06 – Defying Gravity
07 – I Ain’t Living Long Like This
08 – One Paper Kid (with Willie Nelson)
09 – Green Rolling Hills (with Fayssoux Starling)
10 – Burn That Candle

In response to criticism that her records weren’t “country” enough, Harris recorded Blue Kentucky Girl, one of her most traditional outings. Relying on a more acoustic sound, the album largely forsakes contemporary pop songs in favor of standard country fare, including the Louvin Brothers’ “Everytime You Leave” and Leon Payne’s “They’ll Never Take His Love from Me.” The cover of Dallas Frazier’s “Beneath Still Waters” earned Harris her fourth number one single.

Tracklist:
01 – Sisters Coming Home (with Tanya Tucker)
02 – Beneath Still Waters
03 – Rough And Rocky
04 – Hickory Wind
05 – Save The Last Dance For Me
06 – Sorrow In The Wind (with Sharon & Cheryl White)
07 – They’ll Never Take His Love From Me
08 – Everytime You Leave (with Don Everly)
09 – Blue Kentucky Girl
10 – Even Cowgirls Get The Blues (with Dolly Parton & Linda Ronstadt)

Emmylou Harris is an artist with the rare sort of voice that communicates an honest and firmly grounded humanity while possessing a crystalline purity that verges on the angelic. In short, she was a singer born to make a great Christmas album, and in 1979 she did just that with Light of the Stable, in which she fused the high-lonesome traditional sound she’d been exploring on Roses in the Snow and Blue Kentucky Girl with songs that honored the spiritual and emotional roots of the holiday season. The album’s gestation began with a 1975 single of “Light of the Stable,” with most of the material recorded years later, but Harris and producer Brian Ahern gave the project an admirably unified sound, which speaks of Christmas with a quiet dignity that’s celebratory but reverent – this is one of the few Christmas albums from a secular artist that scarcely mentions Santa Claus while focusing clearly on the birth of Christ. Harris and Ahern assembled a stellar cast for these sessions – the pickers include Ricky Skaggs, James Burton, and Rodney Crowell, while Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, and Neil Young pitch in backing vocals – but the results are a marvel of restraint, with precious little showboating and a handful of performances that rank with the performers’ best work. If you’re looking for a disc that will kick up your Christmas party a few notches, Light of the Stable isn’t it, but if you want to hear music of quiet but compelling beauty which warmly resonates with the true meaning of the holidays, then you’ll find this album is an experience to treasure.

Tracklist:
01 – Christmas Times A Comin’
02 – O Little Town Of Bethlehem
03 – Away In A Manger
04 – Angel Eyes
05 – The First Noel
06 – Star Of Bethlehem (with Neil Young)
07 – Little Drummer Boy
08 – Golden Cradle
09 – Silent Night
10 – Light Of The Stable
