5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite country excursion, 23 April 2005
This review is from: Trio (Audio CD)
This memorable collaboration remains a masterpiece of heavenly harmonies on some timeless songs by Parton, Phil Spector, Jimmie Rodgers, Linda Thompson and Kate McGarrigle plus traditional country classics. There is also plenty of stylistic variety, from the uptempo country wailer The Pain Of Loving You, through the lilting ballad Making Plans to the elegant interpretation of the Spector classic To Know Him Is To Love Him.
The three songbirds take turns with the main vocals, e.g. the authentic piece of Americana, Hobo's Meditation with Linda on lead is followed by the breezy song Wildflowers with Dolly taking lead, but of course the most impressive sound is where they all sing together.
One of my favorites on an album of consistent listening pleasure is the fragile and soulful My Dear Companion. The rhythmic Rosewood Casket with its lovely nostalgic imagery follows the tender and melancholy I've Had Enough. The album closes with the gripping spiritual Farther Along, an achingly beautiful and uplifting song.
The song selection is superb and the singing is a triumph as the strengths of the three singers' voices are brought to the fore in all the right places and they blend perfectly. I am primarily an Emmylou fan, but every one of the trio deserves equal credit on this one. Western Wall is another great harmony album, with just Emmylou and Linda Ronstadt but the sound is more folk than country. Trio is highly recommend to fans of all three artists, and provides a great listening experience.
