Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris 3-CD Set Coming

(Webster) Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris' two albums that they recorded together, Trio (1987) and Trio II (1999), will be reissued as part of a 3-CD set on September 9th.

The new release, entitled Complete Trio Collection, will feature newly remastered versions of the original Trio albums as well as rare and unreleased music. We were sent the following details:

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."

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.
