Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell - Old Yellow Moon

Although Crowell played in Harris’ legendary Hot Band in the 1970s, this marks their first official collaboration. It’s a match made in heaven. His sturdy tenor perfectly compliments her pristine soprano, as the Grammy-winning veterans duet on bittersweet country ballads and honky-tonk tunes like Crowell’s “Here We Are” and his classic “Bluebird Wine.”

Maria McKee - High Dive

A product of the Los Angeles scene, Maria McKee is best known as the leader of Lone Justice, a short-lived country-rock band from the 1980s. McKee’s solo work has been equally spotty, her last release being 1996’s Life is Sweet. Somewhere along the way, she left behind the Emmylou influences and adopted grandiose, Kate Bush-style pop pretensions. Despite several engaging story songs, like the childhood reverie of the title track, most of the new material is overblown in the extreme. The worst culprit is “Be My Joy,” a song of agonizing self-indulgence.
