Description & Features+

This one was a long time coming, and given its nearly effortless execution, one wonders what took so long. Old Yellow Moon is an album of duets between Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell. Brian Ahern, who produced her early Warner recordings - and who is her former husband - helms these sessions, with Hot Band members James Burton, John Ware, and Bill Payne making appearances, as well as heavy hitters Vince Gill, Stuart Duncan, and Steuart Smith, to name a few. Though recorded in Nashville, the sound of this recording is posited somewhere between the Southern California country sound of the early '70s and some of Music City's more adventurous sounds in the mid- to late years of that decade. The song choices are as eclectic as one would expect. Some of the set's highlights include a smokin' redo of "Bluebird Wine," which appeared as the opening cut on Harris' classic Pieces of the Sky album. This version has some fine-tuned lyrics in the first two verses - Crowell was only 21 when he wrote it. The readings of Roger Miller's Invitation to the Blues" and Allen Reynolds' "Dreaming My Dreams" are a pair of beautifully done standards. There are three excellent cuts here by Hank DeVito, another original member of the Hot Band. They include the midtempo, hard country opener "Hanging Up My Heart," the bluesy "Black Caffeine," and the title cut, a lilting waltz that closes the record. Crowell also contributed "Open Season on My Heart" (originally recorded by Tim McGraw), the languid pedal steel honky tonk ballad "Here We Are," and the back porch "Bull Rider." Kris Kristofferson's "Chase the Feeling" is given a rumbling, punchy, country-rock treatment here. Harris largely goes it alone on Patti Scialfa's "Spanish Dancer," in a radically different reading than the songwriter's, but Gill's gut string guitar, Jim Hoke's spare accordion, and Crowell's hushed harmony on the chorus offer a more picaresque take. While this doesn't carry the weight of an "historic" recording, it is thoroughly enjoyable. Harris is in better voice than she's been in years and Crowell is a natural as a duet partner. Let's hope they consider Old Yellow Moon more than just a one-off, "bucket list" album. - by Thom Jurek, Rovi

Ratings & Reviews+

Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell - Old Yellow Moon is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't play sample tracks Click on it, and the stupid site tells me to download Media Player 9 to play it. MP9 is TWO full versions obsolete - the current Media Player is MP11. Still, it would seem that it should play on MP11 (backward compatible). Didn't work on either PC, one with Win XP ane the other with Win 7. Both have the current MP11. And you can't download MP9 from the Windows website.
