5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites, January 12, 2004
This review is from: Cowgirl's Prayer (Audio CD)
Emmylou Harris' 1993 album COWGIRLS PRAYER should not be missed. Often lost in the shuffle, behind heavyweight albums like WRECKING BALL, this is one of her best albums that usually doesn't get the praise it deserves. It opens with the whistful "A Ways To Go", which has a great chorus and vocal from Harris. She does an amazing cover of Eddy Arnold's "You Don't Know Me", which is one of the best versions of the song I've heard. Another standout is her cover of Lucinda Williams' "Crescent City", which was one of the singles from the album. Perhaps the best song, is the only one that Harris penned for the project. "Prayer In Open D", this is the song I want played at my funeral, it is a beautiful song that should not be missed. On these songs, her voice moves deeper into the lyric than the arrangements usually would allow, but it works with great results. "Jerusalem Tomorrow" is a haunting song, very unique and interesting to listen to. The song is not sung, but spoken. "High Powered Love" is a great uptempo tune, as is "Thanks To You". The ballad "Lovin You Again" is another highlight. She closes the album with Tony Arata's "I Hear A Call" and Leonard Cohen's "Ballad of a Runaway Horse". Overall one of her best albums (among her other great albums). Don't miss this one!
