Biography

Already celebrated as a discoverer and interpreter of other artists’ songs, 12-time Grammy Award–winner Emmylou Harris has, in the last decade, become admired as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing. On Hard Bargain, her third Nonesuch disc, she offers 11 original songs - three of them co-written with Grammy– and ... Read more in Amazon's Emmylou Harris Store

Harris's 1980 back-to-the-roots album marks a high point in her career. With stellar support from Tony Rice (acoustic guitar), Albert Lee (mandolin), and Ricky Skaggs (fiddle), Harris wanders comfortably and warmly through traditional-country and bluegrass pastures. Skaggs, Dolly Parton, and the Whites add beautiful harmonies as Harris slides effortlessly from the Carter Family to the Stanley Brothers to the Louvin Brothers to Paul Simon. Among the set's peaks are Flatt and Scruggs's "I'll Go Stepping Too", with Rice, Skaggs, Lee (on superb electric guitar), and dobro master Jerry Douglas turning up the instrumental heat, and the spiritual "Jordan", with Harris, Skaggs, Rice, and Johnny Cash engaging in buoyant four-part harmonies. --Marc Greilsamer

Although released in 1980 this is my most recent EmmyLou CD. I listened, enthralled,to Roses in the Snow and could not believe what I'd been missing! Containing songs of pure bluegrass context Roses in the Snow involves performances from legends such as The Whites and Dolly Parton. Despite being pregnant with her second daughter during recording, EmmyLou's voice comes across as beautifully as ever; with wonderful tremors that send shivers down the spine. My favourite song, without a doubt, is the Boxer; an enthralling Simon and Garfunkel tune - well worth a listen! All I can say is buy it ,EmmyLou fan or not, you'll kick yourself if you miss it!!!!!

Brave Emmylou made this album at a time when bluegrass was not fashionable at all. Roses in the Snow has remained a firm favorite down the years; her interpretations are just so sublime, the song selection is spot-on, the playing superb and the arrangements exquisite. Several country legends lend their talents to add magic to the sound. The album has now been enhanced by the addition of two previously unreleased tracks that do not reflect the bluegrass style of the other tracks but resemble her traditional country work of the 1970s from albums like Luxury Liner.

It kicks off with the up-tempo title track, an elegy with rich allusive imagery which is followed by the urgent Green Pastures, a stirring devotional duet with Ricky Skaggs. The traditional Wayfaring Stranger comes across with great power in her mid-tempo treatment and yearning vocals. The folk/pop Paul Simon composition The Boxer gets a graceful treatment, light and lilting, while hope triumphs over despair in the slow & melancholy The Darkest Hour is just before Dawn with its beautiful male vocals.

The picking on the fast-paced I'll Go Stepping Too is breathtaking as is the overall instrumental virtuosity. It contrasts markedly with the slow, aching ballad You're Learning, a moving description of love gone wrong. Next come the joyful gospel song Jordan where male vocals make a prominent contribution, followed by the gentle ballad Miss the Mississippi.

I watched a recent documentary on tv about Emmy Lou and have never really listened to her music before, but after seeing her and then watching an old live show bought all her early albums. Her voice is that of an Angel !!!
Well worth buying and listening to again an again and again

Brave Emmylou made this album at a time when bluegrass was not fashionable at all. It's remained a firm favourite down the years because of the beautiful selection of songs. Her interpretations are just so right throughout and the playing is superb.
It's not easy to pick favourites, but the title track, Green Pastures, Darkest Hour, Jordan, Miss The Mississippi and Gold Watch & Chain are particularly memorable.
Roses In The Snow is an uptempo number with breathtaking guitar playing, whilst Wayfaring Stranger is slow and mournful with a strong devotional undertone.
Green Pastures (also check out the stunning live version on the Spyboy album) is straight out bluegrass gospel and very moving. Paul Simon's The Boxer was a clever choice for a cover and it sounds sublime in this bluegrass version.
Although I've discovered much beautiful new music since the 1990s bluegrass revival, I always return to this album as one collection exemplifying the absolute best of the genre.

Format: Audio CD
This album, in its original vinyl form, was my first full bluegrass album. It starts impressively with the up-tempo title track and maintains a high standard throughout the original album. I replaced my vinyl with CD, since when Rhino have re-mastered it and added two bonus tracks (You're gonna change, Root like a rose) that I'm told are good but not bluegrass. In any case, this album is well worth it for the original ten tracks.
Wayfaring stranger, a traditional song, became a top ten country hit and ensured the success of the album against record company expectations. This was 1980, remember, when Kenny Rogers was the biggest name in country music and the Urban Cowboy craze was at its height. I love Kenny's music and the Urban Cowboy soundtrack, but there are many different types of country music and it's healthy if they can co-exist.
Green pastures is a traditional song that shares the same tune as the more famous Farther along (which Emmylou recorded with Dolly and Linda on one of their Trio albums). On this track, Willie Nelson plays gut-string guitar while Ricky Skaggs sings the song as a duet with Emmylou. Dolly provides harmony vocals but you have to listen closely to hear her contribution.
The Boxer is a cover of the Simon and Garfunkel classic. It works well as a bluegrass classic, though Emmylou did not adjust the lyrics for gender. Obviously, not many people minded as the song was released as a single and made the country top twenty.
Darkest hour is just before dawn, a cover of a Ralph Stanley song, also features Ricky Skaggs on vocals. That song is followed by the brilliant up-tempo song, I'll go stepping too - if this doesn't set your toes tapping, nothing will.
You're learning comes from the songbook of the Louvin Brothers.
