The first 2 highly successful (Grammy/CMA/nominated/ winning) Trio albums (Trio 1987, Trio II 1999) both critically and commercially successful, have been remastered and sound gorgeous. The 3rd disc was produced by Emmylou and Brian Ahearn and they did an excellent job on it. This 3rd disc shows how much fun the ladies had and the artistic process involved in their labors of love. There are several tracks that should be released as singles if the powers that be allow it. Let's get these ladies heard on country radio NOW. "Waltz Across Texas Tonight" is a very contemporary sounding song. "You Don't Knock" is a song I sing all the time now. It has an edgy Gospel vocal from Emmylou with Linda and Dolly doing an excellent and fun doo op background. Also, "Are You Tired of Me" with a superb Linda lead. These are just three potential singles. The alternate version of "I've Had Enough" is startling beautiful and I personally prefer it to the Trio I version and I love that.
The packaging of the album shows great artistic work with an excellent 19 pg booklet on the Trio including track by track history of each song on the 3rd disc written by longtime artistic associate of Linda's, John Boylan (he currently manages Linda).
This is an important album historically because it demonstrates how the Trio brought Americana music to the masses in exquisite style. It also has several genres included in one. Don't miss out on this important album; a must have in one's music collection of fine important music.

The final disc contains alternate and outtakes from the two albums so is a less cohesive listen, but it does contain many wonderful pleasures such as the beautiful a cappella 'Grey Funnel Line', a joyful version of 'Mr Sandman', a swinging version of Dolly Parton's 'Do I Ever Cross Your Mind' and the lovely 'Softly And Tenderly'. As with the two released discs the musicianship is excellent and the harmonies exquisite providing more beautiful singing to delight in. To end on a sad note unless there are anymore recordings in the vault this is all you will ever hear of this beautiful sound, for Linda Ronstadt is seriously ill so we will never hear this beautiful trio produce any more new music so snap up what was captured while you can you won't be disappointed.

As often happens to me, I was innocently pottering around when a sublime set of harmonies coming from the radio riveted me to the spot. It turned out to be "Rosewood Casket" from Trio.I had to abandon my previous prejudices and acknowledge that these three voices together made a wonderful sound. The production is uncluttered and they are sensitively accompanied by some superb musicians.
The prospect of an extra twenty alternative takes and unreleased tracks in addition to the original two recordings made this an attractive buy, and this collection is now a favourite of mine.
