Clips & Pix: Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton & Linda Ronstadt

I coincidentally spotted the above clip earlier today and was totally floored. It literally brought me to tears. Singing just doesn’t get any more beautiful! Yes, occasionally music makes me emotional, and I’m not ashamed of it. In fact, without meaning to sound full of myself, that’s when I know it’s truly great!

I assume that TV appearance of Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt was captured sometime in 1999 in the wake of the release of their collaboration album Trio II.

To start with, After The Gold Rush is one of my all-time favorite Neil Young tunes. But it’s really the angelical voices of these three outstanding vocalists that catapult this rendition of the song right into the stratosphere and beyond.

How fitting for a tune that ends with the lines: We were flyin’ mother nature’s silver seed to a new home in the sun/ Flyin’ mother nature’s silver seed to a new home.

    1. Wow, I had not known about Parton’s cover of ‘Stairway’ and just watched a YouTube clip of her performing the song live. While I don’t like it quite as much as ‘After The Gold Rush,’ it’s pretty cool how she makes it own.

      Parton make look all fake and plastic on the outside, but I’ll tell you one thing: she’s genuine on the inside. I’ve seen a couple of interviews with her on TV – very good-hearted, soulful and down-to-earth personality.
