Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions album for sale Product Description



Perhaps inspired by the triumphs of TRIO and TRIO II, which they recorded with Dolly Parton, Linda Rondstadt and Emmylou Harris went into a makeshift studio to record an album as a duo. The results are superb. Rondstadt leaves her slick Hollywood pop sound behind and delivers some of her most unadorned and heartfelt singing since the early '70s. Harris is Harris: her voice is as delicate as a butterfly and as strong as steel. The songs on WESTERN WALL are varied, each vividly telling a story. "1917" is a chilling chronicle of an affair cast amid the brutality of WW I. "Sweet Spot" is an eerie declaration of devotion, with a spare, Laurie Anderson-like use of electronics, written by Harris and Luscious Jackson's Jill Cunniff. Rondstadt shines on a straightforward, proud version of Jackson Browne's "For a Dancer." Other song choices include Bruce Springsteen's "Across the Border" and Leonard Cohen's "Sisters of Mercy." Excellent. Recorded at the Arizona Inn, Tucson, Arizona. WESTERN WALL: THE TUCSON SESSIONS was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Personnel: Linda Ronstadt (vocals, background vocals); Emmylou Harris (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, background vocals); Ethan Johns (guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, slide guitar, Spanish guitar, dulcimer, mandocello, synthesizer, bass synthesizer, drums, percussion); Bernie Leadon (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, electric 12-string guitar, guitarron, mandocello, mandolin, bass synthesizer, bass guitar, 6-string bass); Greg Leisz (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandocello, mandola, mandolin, bass guitar, background vocals); Andy Fairweather Low (electric guitar, bass guitar, background vocals); Paul Kennerley (electric guitar, background vocals); Samantha Rowe (cello); Neil Young (harmonica, background vocals); Wix (accordion); Michel Pepin (bass guitar, cymbals); Helen Watson, Kate McGarrigle, Anna McGarrigle (background vocals).

Entertainment Weekly (9/3/99, p. 70) - "... These two paragons of country-pop could be coasting, but fortunately for us, they're still listening. Wall offers... moments of pure grace... " - Rating: A-
Q (1/00, p. 85) - Included in Q Magazine's "50 Best Albums of 1999."
Q (11/99, p. 131) - 4 stars out of 5 - "... this is no run-of-the-mill country affair.... the results are uniformly excellent. Indulge."
Mojo (Publisher) (11/99, p. 114) - "... Harris and Ronstadt's voices of experience convey through steady grace what old bluesmen do through weather and whiskey.... they match sparse, intense sounds to carefully chosen storytelling songsa nd devout performace. Bread and fishes, basically."

Duo!
Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions album for sale These two shine! It's obvious they have found their niche with each other having collaborated over the span of decades together, the relative ease in which they harmonize and play off each other is evident and it's sweet as pure cane molasses.
