Overview

Emmylou Harris is respected by today's artists and fans as a musical pioneer and risk taker. That was no less true in 1981, when CIMARRON, now available on CD for the first time, was initially released. After forays into bluegrass (ROSES IN THE SNOW) and country rock (EVANGELINE), Harris created a stellar collection in which the western side of the country and western heritage is underscored. These aren't typical cowboy songs, though: There's a tender duet with Don Williams on Townes VanZandt's "If I Needed You," and the bittersweet reflection on knowledge and regret in Chip Taylor's "Son of a Rotten Gambler." In the heartbreaker "Another Lonesome Morning," you can almost hear the desert winds whistle. Harris picks up the pace with the defiant ode to loner's pride, Paul Kennerly's "Born to Run," a top single from the disc. A lovely version of former Hot Band member Rodney Crowell's "Colors of Your Heart," previously unreleased, has been added to this classic, heartfelt set. The reissue package also boasts extended liner notes and contemporary photographs. --Kerry Dexter
