The celestial threesome’s first album, one of the best of the late ’80s, is a tough act to follow. Cut in ‘94 and long unreleased, Trio II comes about 75 percent of the way with Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and Dolly Parton. Lacking the burnished, heirloom quality of Trio, it’s very fine nonetheless, zigzagging like its predecessor between old-time country (the Carter Family’s ”Lover’s Return”), sleek country-pop ballads (”Blue Train”), and carefully wrought art pop (Randy Newman’s ”Feels Like Home”). B+
