The first time I heard Emmylou Harris sing I thought I was hearing the voice of an angel. From February 1975 comes "Pieces of the Sky"; not her first (that was "Gliding Bird") but her major label debut nonetheless. #emmylouharris #piecesofthesky #1975 #iamagiantnerd
5+ hrs vinyl rip of Emmylou to keep you warm: http://bit.ly/2iGj5dD
HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMMYLOU HARRIS 🎂 "Pieces Of The Sky" by Emmylou Harris [1975, Reprise Records, prod. by Brian Ahern].
Today Emmylou Harris turned 70! On the singer-songwriter's 2nd album, she showed the world her own brand of country and folk music. Most songs were covers, but the arrangements are all her own. Harris has one of the most beautiful voices in country music. She is also well known for having been included in the Band's Last Waltz.
Notable Performers: Emmylou Harris [vocals/guitar], Brian Ahern [guitar/bass], James Burton [guitar/dobro], Bill Payne [keys], Ricky Skaggs [violin/viola], Linda Ronstadt [vocals] + more

34/1001: EmmyLou Harris - Pieces Of The Sky.
This is exactly how I like my country music. Understated, excellent musicianship, nice harmonies. Almost sounds like a folk album at times.
