Emmylou Harris is one of those rare vocal talents. She can sing anything. Her musical apprenticeship alongside legendary country-rocker Gram Parsons practically ensured that she’d follow the country-music path and her record label stacked her sessions with premium talent throughout. However, her taste is far more eclectic. The Beatles’ “For No One” is orchestrated with mild country stylings, while “Boulder to Birmingham,” her stirring tribute to Parsons, uses every haunted country instrument available to convey the pending sorrow. A young, promising Texas songwriter named Rodney Crowell contributes the album’s opening cut “Bluebird Wine.” (Harris always finds struggling songwriters to champion). Country heavyweights like the Louvin Brothers and Merle Haggard have their tunes sung with breathtaking compassion (“If I Could Only Win Your Love” and “Bottle Let Me Down,” respectively). “Sleepless Nights” and “California Cotton Fields” were tunes sung back in her Parsons days. Dolly Parton’s “Coat of Many Colors” indicates just how ambitious Harris intended to be as she attempts another female country legend’s famous hit.
