Mastered for vinyl at the same mastering studio as the original release. Deemed the "Three Tenors" of country music, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris collaborated on this 1987 album — winning them two Grammy Awards and climbing countless music charts. The gifted entertainers never disappoint with their beautiful harmony and song choices.
The Trio sold more than 4 million copies of this blockbuster worldwide, and received the Grammy for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and Best Country Collaboration with Vocals.
Produced by George Massenburg, the trio of Parton, Ronstadt and Harris collaboration produced four huge country hit singles including the remake of Phil Spector's "To Know Him Is To Love Him." The album hit No. 1 on the U.S. Country album chart where it stayed for five consecutive weeks.
"Bringing together Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, and Linda Ronstadt for the album Trio was a truly inspired idea, and not simply because they were three of the finest voices in country and pop music at the time... The three vocalists display an obvious affinity and respect for one another's talents, inspiring superb performances in one another, and while they all shine in their solo spots, some of the album's most pleasurable moments are when the three harmonize, with their distinct but equally impressive voices melding into a whole that's more than the sum of its parts. Harris, Parton, and Ronstadt also make the most of a set of fine songs (certainly a better program than Parton or Ronstadt had taken on in the studio in a while), and producer George Massenburg lined up a wonderfully subtle and intuitive backing group, with Ry Cooder, David Lindley, and Albert Lee picking gloriously without calling undue attention to themselves. In short, Trio is that rare example of an all-star collaborative effort that truly shows everyone involved to their best advantage, and it ranks with the best of all three headliners' work." — AllMusic.com
