Was a joy receiving this from my brother-in-law for my birthday, and another listening today with some fellow superfans. Aca-believe it.

"Wildflowers" by Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris from Trio (1987)

When I wrote about Dwight Yoakam’s HIllbilly Deluxe some weeks ago, I said that I’d like to discover more country music and just by chance I came across this beautiful collaborative album by three great songwriters. To say the truth, I had only heard about Dolly Parton, but for what I read the three are big stars in the country music scene. 

Of course what everyone enjoys about this album are the vocal harmonies, and they just are so exquisite and unique! “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” wrote Mark Deming for Allmusic and I couldn’t agree more. 

However, I really like this song, “Wildflowers”, and it’s sung only by Dolly Parton. It has a merry style compared to other slower tracks of the album, and the metaphore, though simple, is still very sincere.

I really enjoy this album as well. Ronstadt did an interview with Studio 360 a little while back and talked about how she had to overcome a powerful jealousy of Emmylou Harris (Ronstadt perceived Harris to be way better at the same thing she wanted to do). The fact that this album exists is proof of Ronstadt’s strength as a person, I think. Makes me want to go out into the world and conquer one of my fears.
