All I Intended to Be -- Emmylou Harris

I love Emmylou Harris's voice, and I always like the songs she chooses to sing. The first LP of hers I bought was Elite Hotel. That was in 1975. Good grief. Can it possible have been that long? This time around, she's picked out mostly mournful things, so this maybe isn't a CD to listen to when you're down. Or maybe it is. Anyway, Emmylou sounds great singing with Dolly Parton on "Gold" and with Vince Gill on "Kern River." Everything on the album is fine. My kind of stuff.

I believe it was the 1970s country-rock group Brush Arbor who once opined: "Heaven is a girl named Emmylou."
