Were it not for Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, the universally acknowledged king and queen of progressive country, countless young alt-counry bands would have never donned their faded Levi's and battered Telecasters in the first place, and even if they did, they'd surely sound a lot different. In 2001, the smart folks at Rhino Records saw fit to release comprehensive two-disc anthologies of both Harris and Parsons, highlighting the way the pair (separately and together) introduced post-Beatles folk and rock sensibilities into country and expanded it without diluting it.

This collection doesn't lure hardcore Harris collectors with mouth-watering rarities, instead it relies on the appeal to both fan and neophyte of the breadth of material in the prolific Harris's catalogue. With her fragile, angelic voice, the premier country interpreter takes on the legends of Townes Van Zandt ("If I Needed You"), Paul Simon ("The Boxer"), and George Jones ("Today I Started Loving You Again") and comes out on top, transforming the songs and creating a new country/folk-rock paradigm in the process. Though she borrows from numerous corners of the pop world (rockabilly, R&B, British Invasion, you name it), Harris's voice is pure country, and the songs end up that much more interesting for having passed through the high-lonesome plains of her vocal talent.

What the critics say...

Entertainment Weekly (5/4/01, p.71) - "...Emphasizes her sweeter side....If you're curious but uninformed abouth [this] giant, start here..." - Rating: B
Q (7/01, p.132) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Harris is the real McCoy....this goody bag bulges at the seams..."
Uncut (9/01, p.94) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...Hers is an art of grace and danger: geared to restless aspiration....Here the singer's only "ambition" is to make the air ring anew, and to still the heart's perplexity..."
No Depression (5-6/01, p.121) - "...A perfectly fine introduction...with enough breadth to suggest that the rest of her work be examined....a reminder that she was an iconoclast of artistic integrity....and also a significant commercial country music star..."
