Emmylou Harris – Elite Hotel

The Beam Me Up Scotty’s Series, Part 11/25 (LP)

I love Emmylou Harris’ work, full stop. Can’t believe I got this LP for $2.

It’s a wee bit scattered, as she covers Buck Owens, Patsy Cline, Wayne Kemp, Gram Parsons, Earl Montgomery, Rodney Crowell, the Beatles, Don Gibson, Hank Williams and more. Utterly sublime.

This was her first #1 country album, and it’s no surprise. Her voice soars with passion, the songs are tastefully chosen, and it all comes together in a perfect package.

Get your copy. What beauty!

    Time for me to start catching up on some reviews! I’ve been really, really sick for the last week. Still recovering but ready to rock.

    That does sound like a bit of an interesting mix of covers. For $2, this is what they call a “no brainer”.

      Welcome back, dude! It sucks to be sick.

      It’s still amazing, because of her voice, and yup, it’s a no-brainer. An Emmylou Harris I don’t have? I’LL BUY THAT!

    I like this one a lot. Might need to dust it down and give it a spin today, actually. While drinking coffee. And eating biscuits.
