Emmylou Harris helped assemble this tribute to her old singing partner, country-rock icon Gram Parsons, and her love and understanding of his music informs this collection. The musicians here are among the most sympathetic to Parsons’ cause, and their performances accentuate his greatness. Chrissie Hynde finds the sensual and seductive side of Parsons’ music with a rendition of “She” that lets Emmylou Harris find her groove. The Cowboy Junkies cast a hypnotic beauty over “Ooh Las Vegas,” which sounds like the soundtrack to a David Lynch film. Beck plays it straight and powerful for the Flying Burrito Brothers classic “Sin City.” Ex-Byrd and Burrito Brother Chris Hillman teams with Steve Earle for the pure country drive of “High Fashion Queen.” Sheryl Crow and Harris reveal the sweetness of “Juanita,” while Lucinda Williams and David Crosby tackle the complex and beautiful “Return of the Grievous Angel” with sensational results. Wilco and Whiskeytown—alt-country heroes who took a cue from Parsons—are natural fits. Harris assembled a tribute that stands as its own musical statement.
