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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful and uplifting 28 Mar 2005
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
From the tremulous opening notes of the first track, Songbird, I knew this was going to be another Emmylou classic. Spyboy definitely is that but also much more. Every single song on this magnificent album is a treasure, from Songbird to The Maker. The band is perfectly in synch with Harris' voice, and so is the audience. All together these elements create a magical ambience that sticks in the mind.
My favourites on this breathtaking work includes her compelling live version of Green Pastures (with lovely male backing vocal), the most moving Calling My Children Home, done a capella with just male backing vocal (a devotional song of great power), the achingly beautiful Prayer in Open D where she sings solo, Boulder To Birmingham and her almost jazzy version of Daniel Lanois' The Maker with its complex arrangement.
As someone who as a rule do not like live albums, I can assure the prospective listener that Spyboy is a heavenly blend of beautiful songs and atmospherics to which the audience definitely contributes. The applause adds to the mood while her short introductions are just right. This is the closest I'll come to seeing her in concert, and it is a proper consolation. The CD quality and sound clarity are faultless.
I rate this album right up there with Emmylou's very best like Wrecking Ball, Red Dirt Girl, Roses In The Snow and A Cowgirl's Prayer. There is plenty of variety, from bluegrass gospel to the awesome droning rock guitars of Deeper Well and the straight country Tulsa Queen to the jazzy excursion on the Lanois song. I cannot recommend this album highly enough; it has given me hours of listening pleasure and has an uplifting effect on the spirit.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd give it 6 stars if I could 27 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
Impossible to overpraise. A quietly majestic performance beautifully captured. Absolutely no filler whatsover. For example, just listen to the guitar on track 9 [Tulsa Queen]. Extraordinary technique without flash. Just brilliant. The rest is magical too. Just ..... wow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spyboy - brilliant 27 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great Emmylou fan and have had great difficulty tracking down this CD. Buddy Miller's guitar playing is out of this world. I think this a great CD the last CD that she produced that will appeal to a wide audience, rather than Emmylou fans who are prepared for the melancholy of her later CDs such as Red Dirt Girl.

5.0 out of 5 stars After a long time... 9 Jan 2011

Format:Audio CD
As an Emmylou fan I'd been thinking about buying this one for a while, but just didn't get around to it. After reading a couple of other reviews I went ahead and purchased it-fabulous-just buy it!
