Featuring Emmylou...

Postby Jake » Wed Apr 08, 2009 5:55 pm

Help me make a mix with the best harmonies of Emmylou Harris.

I nominate the following:

1. Gram Parsons - "Return of the Greivous Angel"
2. Ryan Adams - "Oh My Sweet Carolina"
3. Bright Eyes - "Landlocked Blues"

What else you got?

Oh shit, I can't believe I forgot:

Neil Young - "Star of Bethlehem"

One of my all-time favorite songs.

You already included one good one from Gram, but please consider "$1,000 Wedding." Beautiful and heart-wrenching. My favorite Gram song and one of my all-time favorite songs, period.


Dylan: "One More Cup of Coffee"

My first GP vote would be "Brand New Heartache" and my Desire pick would be "Sister."

Emmy with Buddy Miller on his "Cruel Moon."

And she and Don Williams on Townes's "If I Needed You" is beeyooteeful.

There's gotta be some Dolly & Linda action in there.

you have to include some patty griffin. her and emmylou collaborate a lot. flaming red is patty's best work. mary has background vocals from emmylou and it is an amazing song. another amazing song is one big love. not sure if emmylou is on it, but emmylou covered it on her red dirt girl album. emmylou has actually covered a lot of patty griffin.

Don't know if it'll qualify as "best" but my Townes Van Zandt Legend album has a duet on "If I Needed You". There's also a non-duet version on the same disc, so watch it.
