Format: Audio CD
This album has much to recommend it and has a similar country rock styling to Emmylou's previous album, Luxury liner. It features three of her own country hits and two other songs that were major country hits for others soon afterwards.
Two more bottles of wine was originally written and recorded by Delbert McClinton, but the song remained obscure for a couple of years. Emmylou made the song her own and topped the country charts with it. In the nineties, Martina McBride covered it and included it on her Wild angels album.
To Daddy was written and recorded by Dolly Parton but plans to release it were dropped when Dolly heard Emmylou's rendition of the song. Dolly's original version is brilliant - it eventually appeared on the compilation Essential volume 1 I will always love you - but despite her exuberance, Dolly is very modest about her own talents and it is entirely in character that she withheld her own version to allow Emmylou to have the first publicly available version of the song. It was another huge country hit for Emmylou, peaking at number three.
Easy from now on, the excellent ballad that opens the set, was another single released from the album, just failing to make the country top ten. Carlene Carter later revived it by including it on her album, I fell in love, one of my favorite albums of all time.
Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight (a huge country hit for the Oak ridge boys) and I ain't living long like this (a huge country hit for Waylon Jennings) are both outstanding up-tempo songs that could have been Emmylou's own hits - she recorded them first - but you can only release so many singles from an album as a single and it is a tribute to the strength of this album that others could have hits with covers of her album tracks.

While the sound on all of the remastered CDs is superb, the producers really outdid themselves on "Burn That Candle," included here.
Of the four most recent reissues, this one has the best bonus tracks; they're fun and have great sound, too.
All the reissues are recommended, but if you buy just one of them, choose either this one or "Blue Kentucky Girl," which has Emmylou's absolute best song ever, "Sorrow In The Wind," as well as some terrific harmonies on other tracks.

Not a perfect CD as there some weak spots here, such as "Two More Bottles Of Wine". Not a bad song, but, with this material, it needs to be played loose and rollicking. Instead it comes off as a consummate studio recording. "Burn That Candle" also sounds a bit by the numbers.

But the best material here is excellent. My personal favorite is "Green Rolling Hills", a song that's very effective in evoking the bucolic landscape of West Virginia. Another highlight is "One Paper Kid" in which Willie Nelson helps to add real emotional depth to the song. "My Songbird" and "To Daddy" are gorgeous ballads, even if the material is wistful.

Overall, there's nothing bad on this CD and there are enough highlights to make it a keeper. Also, the two bonus tracks on this reissue really are a bonus (for a change); both are live recordings made shortly after the original CD was released. "New Cut Road", an old Guy Clark song, benefits particularly well from the live setting.

90% of the songs on QUARTER MOON IN A TEN CENT TOWN were written in the 1970s. It was the theme Emmylou Harris had pictured for the album. But even over twenty years later, the music is as timeless, emotional, and enjoyable as I'm sure it was in 1978 (five years before I was born). QUARTER MOON IN A TEN CENT TOWN is an outstanding album, a collection of ten marvelous songs. "Easy From Now On" which opens the album, is a favorite. It's far more than just a regular ballad, there's a determined feel to the song, three minutes of pure enjoyment. As a single, the song reached #12, as an album opener its takes the listener straight into the depths of the record, not just serving as an introduction. A line in the song provided the title. "Two More Bottles Of Wine" is in classic format, Harris took the song to #1, there's a great rock feel to the number. Dolly Parton gave Harris "To Daddy", which went to #3. Is been said before that Jesse Winchester's "My Songbird" sounds custom-made for Emmylou Harris. Rodney Crowell & Donivan Cowart's "Leaving Lousiana In The Broad Daylight" is my favorite song on the CD. It has an awesome chorus. Winchester's "Defying Gravity" is another major artistic move on the record. The same aggressive vocals from "C'est La Vie" are back on Crowell's "I Ain't Living Long Like This". If there was an outlaw-anthem, this great song would receive my nomination. The brillant duet between Emmylou Harris & Willie Nelson is "One Paper Kid" on QUARTER MOON IN A TEN CENT TOWN. "Green Rolling Hills" is sensational. Winfield Scott's "Burn That Candle" was the only song on the album not written in the seventies.Read more ›
