Emmylou Harris on Songbird

Alan Light,, August 2007

"FOR ME," says Emmylou Harris, "it's always about finding a song, one at a time, that I love and that I can make my own." With her luminous, bell-clear voice, Harris has been turning up great songs and taking full possession of them for almost four decades, as documented on Songbird, a new and comprehensive four-CD, 78-song box set.
