Voice of an angel

"Emmylou Harris' 1989 album BLUEBIRD is not an album that should be looked over. You'd be missing some of her best material. If for any reason, buy this album for the beautiful ballad "A River For Him", which she penned herself. This is one of my all time favorite Emmylou songs, and it showed early on that she is a great songwriter, something she proved with later releases in her career when she had more of a hand in the songwriting. She does a magnificent cover of Johnny Cash's "I Still Miss Someone". The album opens with "Heaven Only Knows", which is a great song to open the album with. "Love Is" is a nice uptempo song that would have been a good single. Her cover of John Hiatt's "Icy Blue Heart" is haunting and beautiful. "Lonely Street" and "Heartbreak Hill" are other great songs, the latter is another one she helped write. Overall BLUEBIRD is a great album that shouldn't be missed, some of her best ballads on here. The album closes with the beautiful sentiment on "If You Were A Bluebird". Don't miss this album!"

"What a treat this CD is. It has everything an Emmylou Harris fan could possibly want, some rich cover songs, some inspiring songs, self penned songs and more. She wrote "A River For Him", which to me is the standout of the album. She expresses heartbreak so poetically and beautifully, and sings it so heartbreakingly. As well on BLUEBIRD she covers a few tracks. Johnny Cash' "I Still Miss Someone", which is so beautiful, and Andy Williams' "Lonely Street". She duets with Bonnie Raitt on the John Hiatt penned "Icy Blue Heart", about the games and tricks of love. The album closes with "If You Were A Bluebird", a beautiful emotive song about everlasting love. Other highlights include "Heaven Only Knows", "Love Is", and "Heartbreak Hill", but with any Emmylou album, you can't lose, especially when its BLUEBIRD."
The Sopranos has created newfound glory for this gem

"The Sopranos Season 5 premier "Two Tony's" has created buzz for a song that was released in 1989. The song is Heaven Only Knows by Emmylou Harris and it is found on this album. Overall, I think the album is good, and Emmylou is one of those artists that does not get the commercial success she deserves. I guess it took the monster poularity of the Sopranos to lend this album newfound glory in sales. As I type , this album is #27 on the Amazon bestseller list. What a feat for a 1989 release. Good stuff. Thanks to David Chase and the rest of the Sopranos crew for making this album a hit again."
