Emmylou Harris - White Shoes Vinyl LP
Emmylou Harris White Shoes 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.
1983's eclectic and rock 'n' roll-leaning White Shoes served as Emmylou's final album with longtime producer Brian Ahern. The Johnny Ace made famous "Pledging My Love" and Paul Kennerley's "In My Dreams" both hit the Top Ten on Billboard Country while curious covers of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," Donna Summer's "On the Radio" and Sandy Denny's "Like an Old Fashioned Waltz" also appear.
