Elite Hotel is an album by country music artist Emmylou Harris, released in 1975. Elite Hotel was Harris' second album to be released in 1975, preceded by the widely acclaimed Pieces of the Sky. Elite Hotel surpassed it on the Billboard charts, becoming Harris' first country album. The album yielded two country singles: "Together Again" and Harris' version of the Patsy Cline hit "Sweet Dreams", and "One of These Days" made it to the spot

I first heard this album in the late 1970s, and I couldn't believe the amazing mix of authentic country vocals with LA rock sound. It's a perfect blend. I've now owned this in three formats-vinyl album, cassette, and finally CD. I can't live without it, and there are only a handful of artists/recordings that I feel that way about  . Pieces of the Sky" was the debut album for Emmylou Harris-check it out to hear how this wonderful artist began her long and incredible recording career.

Pieces of the Sky is the second studio album by American country music artist Emmylou Harris, released in February 1975 through Reprise. Although she had released the obscure folk-styled Gliding Bird five years earlier, Pieces of the Sky became the album that launched Harris' career and is widely considered to be her début. In those intervening years she had forged a musical relationship with Gram Parsons that would alter the musical direction that her career would take. In the field of astronomy, the sky is also called the celestial sphere. The celestial sphere is conventionally divided into regions called constellations. Usually, the term sky is used informally as the point of view from the Earth's surface; however, the meaning and usage can vary.
