But it was the guitar chair that generated the most fire. When the great Burton left in , he was replaced by an English half-gypsy named Albert Lee. For two glorious years, Lee was almost as big an attraction in the Hot Band as Harris herself.
His unmistakable clean tone and quiet, economical, yet very distinct phrasing and laconic, meandering solos—which invariably featured breathtaking sprints—became, on stage and on record, no small part of Emmylou's sound.
Since those days, Lee has done studio work, and has released several solo albums with vocals. But nothing he's done since has equaled his work with the Hot Band. It's sweetly fitting, then, that Lee would re-emerge after a long silence with an album that reprises tunes he first recorded with Harris.
If you're having trouble remembering Lee or, conversely, still hunger for his fleet digits, punch up track 5 of Heartbreak Hill , Gram Parsons' "Luxury Liner," for a heapin' helpin' of what makes this guitarist great: speed, ideas, and more speed. Lee first recorded the track with his own vocal, but later stripped that out in favor of this steaming, straight-ahead instrumental version.
Vince Gill and Brad Paisley add their voices to this whirl through Parsons' tale of ships and lost love, of "A long-lost soul for a long, long time. As it is throughout the album's 10 tracks, the sound here is unobtrusive: solid images, compact yet clear dynamics, guitar solos that snap.
