  • In 2008, Emmylou Harris was inducted into the Country Music Association Hall of Fame, the sort of honor that is usually bestowed on artists in or past the twilight of their careers. ALL I INTENDED TO BE, her second album for Nonesuch Records, proves that this is far from the case. But overall her latest has a strong feel of summation, too. From the title on down, ALL I INTENDED TO BE reveals the total Emmylou Harris, its 13 songs examining every aspect of her long, varied, and storied career. Split, as her albums often are, between sensitive originals and exquisite covers of little-known songs, the album most of all demonstrates that Harris is country music's consummate team player. Guest vocal spots by Dolly Parton, Pam Rose and, most affectingly, Kate & Anna McGarrigle only emphasize this aspect of the album. The two songs sung with the McGarrigles, both of which the three singer-songwriters co-wrote, are actually its high spots. One, "How She Could Sing the Wildwood Flower," a tender and beautiful tribute to the late June Carter Cash, immediately leaps onto the list of the finest songs Emmylou Harris has ever recorded.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.69) - "On this superb, epically desolate weeper, her vocals meld with the more twanging tones of guest Dolly Parton to 24-karat effect." -- Grade: A-

Dirty Linen (p.52) - "Harris' rendition of Merle Haggard's classic 'Kern River' sounds as if it were written for her mournful voice to sing, while her own 'Not Enough' explores the deeper shades of age and loss."

Q (Magazine) (p.103) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Restrained, graceful and poised, the lady remains country music's finest ambassador."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "ALL I INTENDED TO BE is an assured tribute to Emmylou's knack for finding the perfect song."
