Uncut (magazine) (p.89) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "At the heart of the records' seamless elegance are Harris' impeccable taste in choosing material and the understated intensity of her performances."
Arranger: Brian Ahern.
Emmylou Harris was a little-known singer and songwriter playing the folk circuit in Washington, D.C., when she was discovered by Gram Parsons, who invited her to sing on his solo albums and revealed to the world she had a voice of striking beauty and the talent to use it wisely. After Parsons' death, Harris embarked on a solo career that saw her creating a series of outstanding albums that combined the sound and style of classic country music with a progressive feel that made her one of the best respected artists of her generation. This specially priced box set includes Harris' first five albums for Reprise Records in full, featuring some of her most compelling studio recordings. Included in this set are 1975's Pieces of the Sky, 1975's Elite Hotel, 1977's Luxury Liner, 1978's Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town, and 1979's Blue Kentucky Girl.
