#588 Trio – Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt

Trio was a country album from three artist Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. I have heard and really like Ronstadt and Parton. I only know who Harris is because she has an album on this list. My mother listened to to Ronstadt when I was little and I liked her songs. I am surprised she is not on this list. I should see if she had an important album or not. Everybody knows Dolly. I hate country as we know. But and this is a big but, maybe Ronstadt and Parton could change my mind. I would prefer if Ronstadt has returned to rock once more before she became ill with Parkinson’s disease. Some of my favourite songs from her were “Heat Wave” and “Ooh Baby Baby”.

Funny story: While I was listening to this album I was at a friend’s house and I heard a chicken clucking loudly and I thought it was in the song. “This music is so country that they added farm sounds.” I realised when the song ended it was coming from the neighbour’s garden.

Overall, Ronstadt could not get me to like country music. It is not horrible, but I would never listen to it again. The three women harmonize well together. The best song on the album is “Telling Me Lies”. 6/10.
