In 1995, Emmylou Harris released one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the decade, Wrecking Ball, produced by Daniel Lanois, best known for his work with U2, Peter Gabriel and Bob Dylan. An experimental album for Harris, the record included Harris’s rendition of the Neil Young–penned title track (Young himself provided guest vocals on two of the album’s songs), Steve Earle’s “Goodbye”, Julie Miller’s “All My Tears”, Jimi Hendrix’s “May This Be Love”, Anna McGarrigle’s “Goin’ Back to Harlan” and Gillian Welch’s “Orphan Girl”. U2’s Larry Mullen, Jr, played drums for the project. The album received virtually no country airplay, but it brought Harris to the attention of alternative rock listeners, many of whom had never listened to her music before. - wikipedia

In 2014, Wrecking Ball was reissued as a deluxe three-disc set - the first disc is a remaster of the original album; the second disc with bonus material including unreleased songs and alternate takes; and the third is a DVD containing a making-of documentary.

    Oh. forget it. I just keep posting the same lame boring shite day after day and it’s just really old now. I know no one cares what I post here or how gay i am or how hard I lie to keep myself from realizing the truth about my orientation. What a feckless twat I am. Sorry to have wasted your time.

  4. So fake U L E , if it’s so tiresome and old to read the same boring repetitive garbage , why did you bring it up at all ? It just fans the flames , which is probably what you want to do . Great stuff , by the way . Wrecking Ball is a great album .

    “Eli, Freddie Fender, CJ, Groupie Chick Traci, Derrick, U L E, Terrence, Bill, Smashmouth - You’ve really gone rabid repeating and talking to yourself. When you are treated like an adult, you ask for supervision/moderation! The word is self-restraint. Isn’t it obvious why you are not at other sites? They’ve have long banned you.”
