Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris’ Trio albums are being re-released by Rhino on 9th September 2016.
The original albums were released in 1987 (Trio) and 1999 (Trio II), and have sold more than 5 million copies worldwide picking up three Grammys. Produced by Emmylou Harris, the newly remastered albums will be released as a three-CD collection packed with rare and unreleased music.
On the same day a single disc set will be released entitled My Dear Companion: Selections from the Trio Collection featuring a mix of songs from the three-disc set, and Farther Along, a double LP set of all the bonus material from The Complete Trio Collection, will also be released. Trio II will also be released on vinyl for the first time.
The bonus disc of the three-disc set features 20 songs including alternate takes of album tracks like I’ve Had Enough, Making Plans and My Dear Companion. There are also 11 completely unreleased recordings from both album sessions including Waltz Across Texas Tonight, Pleasant As May, Are You Tired of Me, and the gospel standard Softly And Tenderly.
Among the unreleased material is also an alternate version of Do I Ever Cross Your Mind? featuring Parton on lead vocals and a stunning acapella version of Calling All My Children Home.
