Biography

Already celebrated as a discoverer and interpreter of other artists’ songs, 12-time Grammy Award–winner Emmylou Harris has, in the last decade, become admired as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing. On Hard Bargain, her third Nonesuch disc, she offers 11 original songs—three of them co-written with Grammy– and ... Read more in Amazon's Emmylou Harris Store

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll tell ya how much I like this recording: July 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've had a copy of Luxury Liner in one form or another since 1978. It still gets as much play as any recording in my collection because it simply is a timeless set of American music by an ensemble of rising young stars who were on fire with creativity. Luxury Liner was the vehicle that allowed Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band to show the world the amazing complexity -- and greatness of their musical soul. Harris, Lee, Gordy, Hardin, Crowell, DeVito, et. al. -- Man, what a crew!

The album itself doesn't have a weak track. But obviously I like some tunes more than others. Here are my personal favorites: Track one, side one, the title track -- and immediately you get hit upside the head with Harris' vocals and Albert Lee's incredible Telecaster licks. I remember reading where Joe Walsh called Lee's playing on this tune "incomprehensible." As in really, really hard to try and duplicate. Try James Burton on speed, playing flawlessly and maybe you might come close to Albert Lee's work on Luxury Liner. The next tune, "Pancho and Lefty," features Emmy's haunting vocals, that give this great song just the right treatment. No other recorded version even comes close to this performance. It's one of the all time great country tunes and it very well might make you cry. When I Stop Dreaming, You're Supposed to be Feeling Good (another highlight tune), and I'll be Your San Antonio Rose round out the first side.

Side two starts out with the Chuck Berry opus, C'est la Vie (You Never Can Tell). It's a rollicking, fun tune that is probably better than Berry's original. Harris vocals are sassy and strong, and the band rocks the tune just right.

...So go the apt lyrics of a song ("She") on this gorgeous collection of artistic fabulousness. For anyone who hasn't heard the phenomenon that is Emmylou Harris' clear-blue bell-like young voice, this disc will tilt you back like a mountain breeze on a June day. Such wonderfulness! My exultation falls far short of the clarity, purity and sheer musical beauty of the brilliant music recorded here, that you can purchase, amazingly, for a few dollars. What a wonderful world! I have, I think, all of Emmylou's albums, and I will say that this one stands near the top. That's saying a lot for an all-time world-class musician of Emmylou's stature. Whether or not you agree about the superlatives, you can't help but enjoy the soaring lyrical tracks on this disc. It's impossible to dislike this music, and very possibly it will become one of the most-played favorites in your collection, as it is in mine. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A High Quality Reissue April 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Finally! An audiophile's dream! Every note played on Emmy's Gibson J-200 is as clear and pristine as if the listener were in the studio itself. Listen to her vocals - crisp and clean.
Now, check out the songs. Luxury Liner is what I consider to be the first in Ms. Harris's peak period releases, going through her Ballad of Sally Rose (OK! OK! I know about White Shoes, but that was just a blip. Even so, that album is so much better than what she's been releasing lately!).
My favorite tune on Luxury Liner is Hello Stranger. Giving that classic the Cajun feel was a stroke of genius. And the way the vocalists play off each other throughout the song (especially when she's sung it in concert) is mesmerising. She literally brought an almost forgotten song from the 1930's back to life!
You're Supposed To Be Feeling Good is Emmylou at her prime, with a sort of ethereal sound quality to it. I'll Be Your San Antone Rose is pure country, which Ms. Harris has all but forgotten about in this 21st century.
Every song on this disc is a gem. Listen to Albert Lee's blistering guitar solo in the title tune! And, with loads of help from Ricky Skaggs fiddle playing, she blows away the original Chuck Berry version of (You Never Can Tell) C'est La Vie - no easy task.
At a time when current country music is abysmal at best, thank God these albums are available for us to remember what once was. Yes, I realize she's gained new fans from her more current releases, but her new direction in music leaves me empty. I long for the music that blew away all competition - THIS kind of music!
C'mon, Emmy!

5.0 out of 5 stars LUXURY LINER Belongs In Every CD Collection June 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Just like Linda Ronstadt's HEART LIKE A WHEEL is a requirement to be a Linda Ronstadt or 1970s music fan; Emmylou Harris' LUXURY LINER is a prerequisite to be any Emmylou Harris fan or music fan period. This is Emmylou Harris' greatest interpretive album, and one of my all-time favorites. LUXURY LINER is also the best-selling Emmylou Harris solo record. It isn't difficult to understand why. First the incomparable Hot Band, is in its peak form. There's extraordinary song selection ranging from Chuck Berry to the Louvin Brothers. Harris' singing is, as always, sensational. Harris brought Gram Parsons' earliest masterpiece "Luxury Liner" to public view. Obviously the title track to her third release, but the song has an explosive vocal track with rearranged structure making it one of the album's best. A new mood is created on "Pancho & Lefty" written by Townes Van Zandt. The sparse but gorgeous arrangements, make it one of the many highlights on this great CD. "Making Believe" is a Country classic, Harris' version, which charted at #6, is the best. Rodney Crowell's "You're Supposed To Be Feeling Good" is a terrific song. Harris transports the listener to the West on Susanna Clark's "I'll Be Your San Antone Rose". Instead of a Beatles cover, Harris makes Chuck Berry's "C'est La Vie" a crowing moment on the album. The song, which reached #8, is the ultimate listen, proving Harris could cover Rock classics with the same ease as she did Country classics. Speaking of Country classics "When I Stop Dreaming" is performed marvelously in harmony with Fayssoux Starling and Dolly Parton. "Hello Strangers" another remarkable song on this outstanding collection. Read more ›
