Emmylou Harris' fourth album and final album for Reprise Records came out in 1978, another fine example of her signature country-rock style applied to a fine selection of cover songs. The core instrumental backing came from The Hot Band as usual, but there were also appearances from Rick Danko and Garth Hudson of The Band, singer Nicolette Larson, bluegrass musician Ricky Skaggs, harmonica player Mickey Raphael, and Hot Band alumni James Burton. Willie Nelson also appeared for a vocal duet on "One Paper Kid".
The album generated three hit singles on the Billboard country chart - "Easy From Now On" got to #12, Dolly Parton's "To Daddy" got to #3, and Delbert McClinton's "Two More Bottles Of Wine" gave her a third #1. The album itself got to #3. After this album she signed a new deal with Warner Brothers.
