Emmylou Harris - Roses in the Snow Click here to see this CD at!

By Marc Greilsamer

Emmylou 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 & 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. The 2002 reissue adds a pair of unreleased bonus tracks to the mix.

"I bought this album in 1980 without hearing a single track because I was, and am, an Emmy Lou Harris fan. I had never considered myself a fan of Blue Grass but I fell in love with the beautiful harmonies and that album remains in my personal top 10. Simply exquisite!"
