DOLLY PARTON, LINDA RONSTADT, AND EMMYLOU HARRIS VERSION OF WILDFLOWERS

TRIO (DOLLY PARTON, LINDA RONSTADT, AND EMMYLOU HARRIS) DEBUT LYRIC VIDEO FOR ALTERNATE VERSION OF “WILDFLOWERS”
 

Previously Unreleased Version Appears On Trio: The Complete Collection

Newly Remastered Three-Disc Set, Featuring Rare And Unreleased Music, Will Be Released On September 9 From Rhino
 

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 3, 2016)
Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris have premiered a new
lyric video for an unreleased alternate version of “Wildflowers.” The
Parton-penned track, which was originally released on their 1987
collaboration Trio, is featured on the upcoming three-CD set THE COMPLETE TRIO COLLECTION. The video can be viewed here and the track is also available now at digital retailers.

Parton, Ronstadt, and Harris have three careers unparalleled in music
history. Together they have sold over 200 million albums worldwide and
performed for decades in front of countless fans around the globe. It’s
no surprise that when their three voices united to release their debut
collaboration, the results were remarkable. The threesome released two
albums together, Trio (1987) and Trio II (1999), which have combined to sell more than five million copies worldwide and win three Grammy® Awards.

Both of these classic albums have been newly remastered for a
three-CD collection packed with rare and unreleased music. Produced by
Harris, THE COMPLETE TRIO COLLECTION will be available on September 9
for a list price of $29.98.

On the same date, a single-disc set will also be available entitled
MY DEAR COMPANION: SELECTIONS FROM THE TRIO COLLECTION, featuring a mix
of songs taken from the three-disc set, as will FARTHER ALONG, a
double-LP set of all the bonus material from THE COMPLETE TRIO
COLLECTION. Trio II will also be released on vinyl for the first time.

Even though Parton, Ronstadt, and Harris began recording together in
the 1970s, a full album proved elusive. When the stars aligned and the
friends were finally able to record a full album, a powerhouse sound of
country and Americana was born. The results were remarkable. Trio arrived
in 1987; sold more than four million copies; won two Grammy Awards; and
topped the country album chart for five consecutive weeks. Among the
standout tracks are “To Know Him Is to Love Him,” “Wildflowers,” and
“Farther Along.”

It would be more than a decade before the group released a follow-up, but when Trio II arrived
in 1999 it did not disappoint. The album won a Grammy Award and peaked
in the Top Five of the country album chart. It sold more than one
million copies worldwide on the strength of tracks like “Do I Ever Cross
Your Mind?” the Carter family’s “Lover’s Return” and a cover of Neil
Young’s “After The Gold Rush.”

The bonus disc is loaded with 20 songs, including alternate takes of
album tracks like “I’ve Had Enough,” “Making Plans” and “My Dear
Companion.” Also featured are 11 completely unreleased recordings from
the trio spanning 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.”
