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 Early classic with a wealth of beautiful songs March 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Whatever she does, it is impossible for Emmylou Harris to disappoint. Nothing beats her beautiful voice or her exquisite taste in songs. This album, first released in 1976, has been enhanced by the addition of Me And Willie and Night Flyer.

She does a stunning cover of the Towns van Zandt song Pancho And Lefty plus stirring versions of the old country classics Making Believe and When I Stop Dreaming. The title track and She are Gram Parsons compositions, lovingly interpreted by Harris.

My other favorites include the moving country ballad I'll Be Your San Antone Rose, her cover of Chuck Berry's (You Never Can Tell) C'est La Vie, Hello Stranger, the duet with Nicolette Larson, and the lilting Tulsa Queen, a song about a train which equals Arlo Guthrie's City Of New Orleans any day.

Both the previously unissued tracks are great. Me And Willie is a melancholy song about life in a travelling country band, whilst Night Flyer with Delia Bell is a powerful ballad with breathtaking harmony vocals, and moody mandolin.

The CD booklet contains 2 full colour and 5 black & white pics of the graceful songbird, plus extensive liner notes on her career and background on all the songs up to Tulsa Queen. All the lyrics are included, including the two new songs.

Although I like Pieces Of the Sky, Roses In The Snow, Cowgirl's Prayer, Wrecking Ball and Red Dirt Girl a little bit more, this album still deserves five stars! Emmylou's music enriches the mind and emotions in many ways and is always spiritually uplifting.
