Emmylou Harris - Last Date Vinyl LP
Emmylou Harris Last Date Vinyl LP
Usually viewed in a country context, Emmylou Harris is in fact one of the most distinctive and visionary voices in all of popular music to emerge over the last four decades. Mentored by ex-Burrito Brother Gram Parsons, she rose to stardom as his transcendent vocal partner on the "Cosmic American Music" gracing his landmark solo albums GP ('72) and Grievous Angel ('73). Harris' own ever-adventurous solo career launched shortly after Parsons' untimely death with 1975's Pieces of Sky.
1982's Last Date served as Emmylou's first live album and a real showcase for her Hot Band. Comprised of country standards and country-styled pop numbers she hadn't previously recorded, the title track single hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country charts. Harris also offers up some moving Gram Parsons related fare ("Return of the Grievous Angel," "Juanita," "Devil in Disguise") to go along with consummate covers of The Boss ("Racing in the Street") and Neil Young ("Long May You Run").
