I always enjoy the music of singer songwriter Emmylou Harris and this CD is just lovely. The smooth rich tones of Mark Knopfler along with the crystal clear voice of Ammylou makes a beautiful combination.
The songs on this CD have a mixture of tempos, that are an absolute delight to any Country Music fan and make for a great variety.
Super in the car to get through the hassle of the traffic jams.

Love this CD - very easy and enjoyable listening.

Not the knock out album I had hoped for but still a very enjoyable performance by two professional musicians who clearly enjoy playing together.

Simply brilliant album with two singers who harmonise so so well. I rate this as one of the best albums I have ever bought.

This is, for me, one of the greatest pairings in the history of... well, pairings! One of those that may be unexpected at first, yet so perfectly natural, on a little reflection.

I've always had a soft spot for duets that put you in mind of 'Beauty and the Beast'. Or, if that sounds too fanciful, a pure, strong female vocal accompanying that of a man who ... is perhaps not the first one would think of on being told to' picture a singer.'..

But Knopfler's voice, despite not being the most musical, has never lacked expressiveness. Especially not when he's enjoying himself - as you can feel he is here. It is there in his playing also; the exuberance of a younger man together with the maturity and sureness of touch of an older one... It doesn't get much better than this. Knopler's guitar does everything from rythmic accompaniment, via pianistic stylings, to third voice in a three-part-harmony - and handles each role superlatively well.

And let's not forget the other half of the duet... Emmylou's vocal, is a beautiful mix of sweetness and sultriness, of fragility and strength... But hey! that's nothing new - it always has been. However the enjoyment she seems to draw from performing with this excellent wordsmith and his near-human sounding guitar playing is palpable. And pushes her to personal bests also...

I believe time will make this one of the great albums - along with 'Hejira'... 'American Pie'... and the others (name your own favourite!). It would make the ideal gift - if you can bring yourself to giving it away. Safer to buy two copies...
