Lab Overview

Hailing from Birmingham Alabama, Emmylou Harris boasts a catalog of over 30 albums, for which she’s collected 13 Grammys for. The 2008 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee has worked with Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bright Eyes, and many more, and Wrecking Ball, consisting of Harris’ covers of works from some of the aforementioned artists plus others, is noted as the album that drew in the alternative rock audience to her immense country/folk fanbase. What stands out about the album, other than the tasteful production and the expressive, warm vocals, is how well Harris consumes, digests, and reinterprets the originals from artists like Neil Young (“Wrecking Ball”), Bob Dylan (“Every Grain of Sand”) and Jimi Hendrix (“May This Be Love”). A fascinating listen from beginning to end, especially on this deluxe 3LP edition that comes with a black & white fold-out insert w/ lyrics and credits. Limited to 5000 copies.
