Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt And Emmylou Harris Trio on 180g LP
Remastered for Vinyl by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab & Pressed at RTI
Trio is a Grammy Award winning 1987 ensemble recording produced by George Massenburg and featuring the distinguished vocal talents of music greats Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris. The three artists are as adept here at taking their respective lead turns as they are harmonizing together and the artful old-timey backing of Ry Cooder, David Lindley and Albert Lee complements the proceedings flawlessly.
In addition to their runaway country remake of Phil Spector and The Teddy Bears' "To Know Him Is To Love Him," Trio features compelling takes on material by Parton ("The Pain of Loving You," "Wildflower"), Jimmie Rodgers ("Hobo's Meditation") and Linda Thompson ("Telling Me Lies") along with three traditionals ("My Dear Companion," "Rosewood Casket," "Farther Along").
Not only did Trio top the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and crack the Top 10 on the Billboard 200, it was also nominated for the Album of the Year at the 1988 Grammys and took home two awards for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and Best Country Collaboration with Vocals. Parton, Ronstadt and Harris reunited for a second effort in 1999 entitled Trio II.
Remastered for vinyl by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab and pressed on 180g LP with Stoughton heavy board jacket and custom dust sleeve.
