Saturday Emmylou, Dolly, and Linda Blogging

Published on Apr 9, 2019

They're three of the most talented female singers of all time - Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. All superstars in their own right, but they're also great friends, and over the years they've come together to make exquisite music.

But Linda Ronstadt faces a crippling disease that is slowly robbing her of her ability to sing. Undaunted, Linda's facing her illness with tremendous courage, helped by her two dear friends. And, as Steve Pennells discovered, these three women still have one last collaboration to share with their fans.

This story originally aired on the 11th September 2016.

Thanks to Sunday Night.

Trio - Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt & Dolly Parton - Evangeline ( 1978.... A song from the Unreleased TRIO album) Emmylou Harris did release this song on her Solo album «EVANGELINE» in 1981.
As the Trio album was never released.
Longtime friends and admirers of one another, Parton, Ronstadt and Harris first attempted to record an album together in the mid-1970s, but scheduling conflicts and other difficulties (including the fact that the three women all recorded for different record labels) prevented its release. Some of the fruits of those aborted 1970s recording sessions did make it onto the women's respective solo recordings. "Mister Sandman" appeared on Harris' album Evangeline and Parton's "My Blue Tears" was included on Ronstadt's 1982 album Get Closer. Rodney Crowell's "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" was on Harris' Blue Kentucky Girl album. Parton and Ronstadt also recorded a version of the traditional ballad "I Never Will Marry", which appeared on Ronstadt's 1977 Simple Dreams album, though that was recorded separately from these sessions. (During this time, Ronstadt and Harris also covered a number of Parton's compositions—Harris covered "Coat of Many Colors" and "To Daddy", and Ronstadt recorded "I Will Always Love You"—for inclusion on their various solo albums during the mid- to late-1970s.) Brian Ahern produced the album, and it had a more Electric sound than the other Trio albums that would be released in 1987 an 1999. They did not agree on the sound and Linda said that they were going bit in a direction they did not wanna go. At the time all 3 of the Girls was more into Country/Rock/Pop than their later work ( that was a bit more folk/bluegrass acustic sound). The 1978 album was never released. However many of the songs appeared pn the Complete Trio Collection in 2015

Most of the unreleased songs Were released on the Complete Trio Collection in 2015. But «Evangeline » . – recorded in 1978, went unreleased on the Complete Trio collection as, Emmylou had released it on her solo album in 1981

This is a recently discovered television appearance of the magnificent Emmylou Harris in January of 1970. Her 1st album Gliding Bird had just been released in late 1969 to very little acclaim and she had yet to make any impact at all on the national music scene. The first song "Lady Of The Rose" remains unrecorded. "The Fugue For the Ox" is a track off Gliding Bird. In this footage she is 22 years old and 7 months pregnant with her first daughter. At this time her career consisted of playing in coffeehouses in Greenwich Village and it would be more than a year before she'd meet Gram Parsons, which changed her life and career forever.
