All of Emmylou Harris' albums from the '70s and early '80s are flawless gems. But if there is one that rises above the others, then QUARTER MOON IN A TEN CENT TOWN is that album. From song selection to performance and production, MOON is the perfect distillation of Harris' remarkable work during this period. A wonderful duet with Willie Nelson ("One Paper Kid") and guest appearances from Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, and harmonica wizard Mickey Raphael are what puts this album over the top.
At the time of MOON's release, Harris sat atop the country world. She was the genre's most widely respected artist and one of its most popular personalities. Not surprisingly, MOON yielded three hits: Delbert McClinton's rocking "Two More Bottles of Wine," Carlene Carter's "Easy from Now On," and "To Daddy," Dolly Parton's chilling evocation of a loveless marriage. Other standout tracks include "Defying Gravity," "Green Rolling Hills," and the Cajun-inflected "Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight." But every track on this 1978 classic is a hands-down winner.
