Exclusively for Prime members. This album is also all about what a great duet is and should be. With OLD YELLOW MOON, you get twelve of them.
Rodney Crowell was a member of Emmylou Harris' Hot Band in the mid-'70s and wrote many songs for her through the years. Harris' ex-husband Brian Ahern, who produced her work in the '70s, also guides these sessions, which feature a number of former Hot Band members: James Burton, John Ware, Bill Payne, Vince Gill, Stuart Duncan, and Steuart Smith. There simply isn't a way for this not to work. The track selection is inspired. Roger Miller's "Invitation to the Blues" is the way to handle a country standard
Emmylou Harris laughs when she’s asked how long her new album of duets with Rodney Crowell has been in the works. Thirty years? she says. Old Yellow Moon, due February 26th, is the latest entry in a long-standing relationship: Harris has been recording Crowell’s songs since Bluebird Wine, the opening track on her 1975 major-label debut, Pieces of the Sky. He played guitar and sang backup in an early incarnation of her Hot Band in the Seventies, and she backed him on his first solo album in 1978.

On Old Yellow Moon ( 1/2 out of four), four appealing Crowell originals, highlighted by the resigned Open Season on My Heart, join a batch of simpatico covers. Among the notable covers are Dreaming My Dreams (popularized by Waylon) and Matraca Berg's Back When We Were Beautiful, both of which are gracefully sad. Producer Brian Ahern brings in Vince Gill for some honky-tonk harmonies, but wisely lets the sound of the principals' longtime friendship find its natural path.
This lilting waltz is the title track of Emmylou Harris' 27th studio album. The LP is a collection of duets with Rodney Crowell, who was a rhythm guitarist in her Hot Band in the mid-'70s. After he left, he continued contributing songs to her records. I first heard Rodney on a demo tape in 1974 and knew immediately from his voice and lyrics he had the right stuff," Emmylou explained. We met soon after, becoming bandmates in the Hot Band and starting a friendship that has continued and grown over the years. This song is one of three on the album penned by Hank DeVito, another original member of the Hot Band. Old Yellow Moon debuted at on the Country album chart, a career-high placing for Crowell. His previous best had been the peak for his 1989 set, Diamonds & Dirt. More songs from Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell. More songs with celestial titles. More songs with colors in the title.
