Editors’ Notes Though Emmylou Harris was Gram Parsons’ vocal partner for his pioneering country-rock records, progressive country was still a new idea when she made her official solo debut in 1975. So hearing Harris’ organic-but-otherworldly tones wrap around everything from honky-tonk (her sad-but-sassy take on Merle Haggard’s saloon-slinger “Bottle Let Me Down”) to Beatles tunes (a heart-stopping reinvention of the forlorn “For No One”) with equal grace must have seemed as unprecedented then as it feels timeless today.
