Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt to Compile Lost 'Trio' Tracks

The first time Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt sang together, they knew they had something special. But with three of the hottest solo careers going in the Seventies, various record label tangles to work through, and a desire to devote the time such a project would require, it would be more than a decade after they first recorded together that all the details would finally be ironed out. They've released two albums since. Although a third collaboration is unlikely since Ronstadt was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2013, the promise of some unreleased recordings to be made available in the near future has been hinted at by Parton. "We've been trying for years to put out the thing that we had in the can and repackage the things that we did," she explains. "...I just got a note from Emmy and Linda saying that they had signed off on it, and so it is gonna happen."
