Contains the No. 1 hits "Together Again" and "Sweet Dreams"
Grammy Award for 1977 Best Female Country Vocal Performance
Upgraded booklets feature all-new notes and vintage, previously unseen photos
Usually viewed in a country context, Emmylou Harris is in fact one of the most distinctive and visionary voices in all of popular music to emerge over the last three decades. A 13-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient, Harris' contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years.
Nonesuch Records is reissuing five of Harris' classic albums recorded from 1975-78, including Elite Hotel, Quarter Moon In A Ten Cent Town, Blue Kentucky Girl, Pieces of the Sky and Luxury Liner.
Each historic album is digitally remastered and expanded with rare bonus material, masterfully supervised for reissue by original producer Brian Ahem. Upgraded booklets feature all-new notes and vintage, previously unseen photos.
While Emmylou Harris spent much of her career carrying on the legacy of Gram Parsons, Elite Hotel ranks among her most overt tributes to his genius, thanks to its covers of the Flying Burrito Brothers' "Sin City" and "Wheels," along with "Ooh Las Vegas" from the Grievous Angel album. In addition to the usual eclectic mix of covers — which includes the Beatles' "Here, There and Everywhere" and Hank Williams' "Jambalaya" this time out — Elite Hotel offers renditions of the country perennials "Together Again" and "Sweet Dreams," which were, respectively, Harris' first two No. 1 chart hits.
Harris has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists' recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008. Her most recent solo album, 2011's Hard Bargain, debuted in the top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart and received tremendous critical acclaim-the Associated Press called it "gorgeous" and said Harris' "silvery soprano is in fine form," while USA Today praised "exquisite ... her unmistakable soprano, at once grainy and ethereal, still wraps itself around a lyric with an angel's delicate warmth."
