Trio II

  • They're getting up to a collective century of professional singing, and they exemplify three angles of redefining country: through folk, L.A. rock or Nashville pop. Yet Harris, Ronstadt and Parton harmonize like a true trio in 10 rapturous airs spanning six decades. They could've been swapping these parts since girlhood. And the voices! Still pure--purer than on their solo CDs. On Neil Young's apocalyptic After the Gold Rush or Donagh Long's ultimate love song, You'll Never Be the Sun, they sound like the perfect down-home choir. Thanks, trio, for an angelic encounter.
