Product Description

After years of promise, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, and Linda Ronstadt return with Trio II, the follow-up to their 1987 platinum-selling critical smash Trio. These three superstars again deliver a collection of stellar acoustic Country, Blues and Pop performances the likes of which made the original Trio recording unforgettable. Certified Gold by the RIAA. (11/01)

Amazon.com

This long-awaited, highly anticipated follow-up to 1987's much-loved initial Trio offering doesn't disappoint. On Trio II, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and Dolly Parton weave a spell that's equal parts traditional and contemporary, country and folk, vision and voice. It's their seamless musical blend of these counterpoints--as in the sweet, sweeping harmonies on Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush" or the instrumentally spare acoustic presentation of the Carter Family's "Lover's Return"--that makes these songs such treasures. When individual voices soar and fuse together to create distinct new voices, when instinct leads the way for artistry to follow, the result is perfect harmony, pure magic. --Alexandra Russell

This album might not have been as successful as the original TRIO album from 1987, but I think it's even better. The song selection is very strong, and the songs suit these ladies very well. The harmonies are beautiful. There's nothing more I could ask for from this album. It opens with the beautiful "Lovers Return", which is a Carter Family song. "High Sierra" is a beautiful song, Linda sounds wonderful on this song. Emmylou takes the helm in a cover of Dolly's "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind". They do a great version of Neil Young's "After The Goldrush" which is just stunning. Linda is lead on "The Blue Train", which is a very nice song. Other highlights include "When We're Gone, Long Gone", "Feels Like Home", "You'll Never Be The Sun" and "He Rode All The Way To Texas". This album was originally recorded in 1994 but there was problems with the release and other factors, so it wasn't released until early 1999. Definately a gem!

The follow-up to their 1987 "Trio" album, 1999's "Trio II" by Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt doesn't disappoint. In fact, it builds on the earlier work and expands outwards to music beyond country. Beginning with the Carter family's "Lover's Return," these ladies set the tone with a beautiful rendition of a classic. Sounding as though they're hanging out on the porch on rocking chairs, Harris, Parton and Ronstadt make their extraordinary collaboration sound easy. The harmonies are flawless. There's no grandstanding here--the point is not for any single voice to stand out, but for all three to melt together in an emulsion of vocal purity. They take on Neil Young's grand "After the Gold Rush" and transform it an eerily beautiful anthem of hope and fear. And Ronstadt on the quiet but propulsive "Blue Train" uses the long, lean line of her voice to vocally paint the picture of a train going, going, going. Gorgeous stuff.

I bought the first Trio CD when it came out and enjoyed most of the songs there. I have to admit, I only bought this second Trio release because of one song "After the Goldrush". This has to be one of the most beautiful, breath-taking, chills-down-your-spine song ever recorded. Most remakes usually aren't as good as the originals, but I beg to differ on this one. This is one of those songs that I crank up as loud as my speakers and ears can stand it - I feel like I'm hearing music and vocals from heaven. It's just astounding. I did finally give the rest of the CD a listen to, and it's fairly decent. But, even if all these other songs sucked, to me, it would have been worth the price just to have "After the Goldrush".

Trio II is a long awaited chapter in the Trio series. Dolly, Emmylou and Linda are back, with a new collection of songs they have recorded. It will be compared to their successfully 1987 Trio album, but I believe this one stands on its own, as they are both excellent albums.
1. Lover's Return - I love the harmonies on this song, they are beautiful and its just a perfect way to start the CD, to showcase the beautiful harmonies we will hear on this album.
2. High Sierra - Beautiful voices, beautiful lyrics, beautiful song.
3. Do I Ever Cross Your Mind - Emmylou takes lead on the cover of Dolly's own hit. Very nice!
4. After The Goldrush - A cover of the Neil Young song, they do it wonderfully, its my favorite on the album. The lyrics are so poignant and meaningful and they truly bring new light to this classic.
5. The Blue Train - Linda sings lead on this one, its beautiful and another highlight of the album.
6. I Feel The Blues Movin In - A nice fun country song to sing along with and dance with, real nice.
7. You'll Never Be The Sun - Remake of the classic, they do it wonderfully with sunny vocals and harmonies.
8. He Rode All The Way To Texas - Another highlight of the collection, shows off their harmonies in a tragic tale about a travelling man who moves on effortlessly without a tear.
9. Feels Like Home - From Linda's 1995 album, a nice song, basically the same but with Dolly and Emmylou as an added bonus.
10. When Were Gone, Long Gone - Nice song to end this collection, beautiful music with great vocals and lyrics.
A nice collection, with some great harmonies all throughout. A lot will compare it to Trio, but if you just listen to it objectively, you will see it stands on its own as a great collection of standards, as well as some of their own hits remade.

What a shame that this album was shelved for four years before being able to be released. I am a huge Dolly Parton fan, so I knew the story of Trio II from her interviews. I also loved Trio so was very excited to hear the sequel would finally be released. I was somewhat disappointed in the "remakes" of previously released material (of course these weren't remakes, they were the originals!!)but I only recognized "After The Gold Rush" from Dolly's "Treasures". I didn't even realize that others had been released on Linda's album -- but now it makes sense why so many of the cuts sound like solo pieces for Linda Rondstadt with "unknown" backup singers you can barely hear in the background! Definitely not the rich blend of voices found in the first album. I was surprised at the "adult contemporary" flavor to this album, but I like anything these three ladies do, so I can't be picky. "You'll Never Be The Sun" brought tears to my eyes the first time I heard it -- it seems very appropriate for a funeral/memorial service -- very touching and heart-wrenching vocals. I heartily recommend this album, but just don't expect the traditional country sound of Trio I.
