    Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell

    The title song of Old Yellow Moon may be the concluding track on the first official album-length collaboration between Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, but it actually represents a starting point for this long-anticipated project, produced by Brian Ahern. These two old friends and occasional band mates, Harris explains, "were picking songs as we sat around Brian's big kitchen table, with his extraordinary microphones hooked up to the computer just to make a demo. We would pick a key or toy around with an idea just to make a sketch." Harris was going over Hank DeVito and Lynn Langham's "Old Yellow Moon" with Crowell for the first time, but their impromptu performance together was so naturally emotive that Ahern decided to build a track around it. "That's a kitchen table recording. Brian later brought in Lynn to play the piano; she had a certain feel that only she could do to really honor the song and the reading we had given it. We added a few other things and it became the title track." Harris pauses to consider this before declaring, "I love the way records get born!"
