Following Harris' departure from Warner Bros., the label saw fit to compile Songs of the West, a collection of previously-released performances linked thematically by their connection, however tenuous, to Western music, life and mythology. Stripped of their original album context, the individual tracks fail to happily co-exist; the record's lone selling point is that a pair of cuts -- one culled from her autobiographical song cycle The Ballad of Sally Rose, the other a cover of Poco's "Rose of Cimarron" -- make their domestic CD bow herein.
