Emmylou - A Solid Album

The recently released 'All I Intended To Be' features some classy backing musicians, a few standout tracks and that haunting voice - often in harmony, when it is heard at its best. My favourite has to be this collaboration (writing and performing) with the McGarrigle sisters. As with some of the early Dylan repertoire, you can't be sure whether it's a traditional song, a reworking of a traditional song or a totally new composition, but it's the kind of track that will quickly get inside your head whatever.

Emmylou Harris - There's a pared down live performance (from Later) of 'How She Could Sing the Wildwood Flower' on YouTube (album on iTunes)
