Can it bulls-eye a 2-meter womprat? I used to do that all the time in my T-16 back home.

Unfortunately, laser turrets are not included in the retail price, are considered aftermarket additions, and vary widely in accuracy modules (imperial buyers typically opt-out altogether). Furthermore, should you decide to purchase the turret add-on, we strongly recommend adding the keyed safety lockout (#KSL-1) to prevent unauthorized personnel from operating it.

PrideSource - Hear Me Out: 'Trio,' Britney Spears
'The Complete Trio Collection,' Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt
Nowhere in the backstory notes to the "The Complete Trio Collection" does it say that when Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt finally found time to unify their voices in perfect harmony that lives were healed and Jesus wept. If you've heard even pieces of this landmark collaboration, though, you know this to be only a slight exaggeration. After all, we are talking about three singing supremes working their magic on 21 songs across two glorious albums. And now, in addition to both 1987's "Trio" and 1999's "Trio II," Rhino Records has collected an additional 20 songs from the ladies' Grammy-winning sessions, some unreleased, some alternate takes of already-released "Trio" tunes. Among them: "Wildflowers," Parton's autobiographical outsider anthem split equally among the three singers, with Parton on the first verse, Harris on the second, and, finally, Ronstadt on the third (Dolly takes lead on the original, included here on the first "Trio" disc). "Calling My Children Home" is transcendent, as their voices unite in splendid harmony for a rich vocal experience on this previously unreleased a cappella track, a gut-wrenching song by bluegrass band The Country Gentlemen. Top to bottom, "The Complete Trio Collection" is a body of staggering beauty. Ronstadt will break your heart as her voice glides through "The Blue Train." Emmy's breathtaking lead on "When We're Gone, Long Gone" will lighten your load. All their voices in collective grace on the stunning "Farther Along" will have you feeling thankful that this project, despite the years it took to get these gals together, has finally seen the light of day. Grade: A

Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris are bound together at the song
Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris are three of the finest singers, songwriters and musicians country music has ever known. Selling more than 200 million records combined and charting a slew of hits on the Billboard charts, these pioneering women defined what it meant to be a woman in the 20th century. Often being parsed against their male counterparts, their willingness to be vulnerable and intimate and bold and independent forever changed how music was made and felt. The thread of their own work is like weaving a colorfully vibrant, but weathered and worn, tapestry of not only the female perspective but that of the greatest stories ever told in any genre of music. Each interpreter on her own has crafted such an enduring and timeless body of work, and you’d be hard pressed to find a more significant triumvirate of women.

Emmylou, Dolly and Linda: Trio Returns For One Sweet and Welcome Last Roundup | Huffington Post
The re-release of the 1986 and 1994 Trio sessions, a collaboration of Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt, is almost certainly the best Americana record coming out this fall.
It also reminds us that this collaboration, besides being delightful, was in some ways as serendipitous and fleeting as the wildflowers about which Parton sang in one of the first Trio album’s most enduring tunes.

Trio - The Complete Trio
While we should celebrate the flawless beauty of this collection, there's a sad reality that Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris will never sing together again because of Ronstadt's battle with Parkinson's disease.
Rather than dwell on what will never be the re-release of the trio's 1987 stunning debut and the 1999 followup, "Trio II," gives us that third album - essentially a trio of records now - a collection of 20 songs that did not make the original releases (you could argue that 20 songs equals two 10-song records or not).

Softly and Tenderly: The Complete Trio Collection | No Depression
Trio has been a not-much-played album on my shelves for many years, and when I was getting all excited about this release I wondered why the original never solidified a place on my favourites list. Partly, naturally, I blame my lifetime companion, who has a cynical suspicion about collaborative albums, particularly those featuring sweet-throated human nightingales in combination; and who moreover gives few points to albums just for being landmarks in musical history. He would, for instance, much rather clean the bathroom for two hours whilst not listening to Ray Charles’ Modern Sounds In Country Music than do anything at all whilst listening to it.

Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris Release 'Trio' Box Set - Rolling Stone
'The Complete Trio Collection' includes two classic albums, plus 20 previously unreleased tracks
A release date has officially been announced for a long-rumored collection that closes the book on one of the most successful collaborative music projects of the last half of the 20th century. On September 9th, Rhino will issue The Complete Trio Collection, a three-disc set compiling tracks by the holy musical trinity of Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris. The collection spotlights material recorded for two best-selling LPs (1987's Trio and its 1999 follow-up, Trio II) and will feature a 20-track bonus disc of previously unreleased material and alternate takes.

Trio (Dolly Parton/Emmylou Harris/Linda Ronstadt): The Complete Trio Collection « American Songwriter
Trio (Dolly Parton/Emmylou Harris/Linda Ronstadt)
The Complete Trio Collection
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Back in 1987, teaming three of country/roots music’s finest lead female vocalists for an album could easily have been a train wreck of colossal proportions. After all, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Ronstadt were already superstars as solo artists and generally were not used to collaborating and/or singing with other women vocalists, despite Harris’ and Parton’s well established earlier work with menfolk (Gram Parsons and Porter Wagner respectively). The threesome had already tested the waters with tracks such as “Mr. Sandman,” “Even Cowgirls Get the Blues” (both appear on this expanded re-issue’s extras disc) that ended up on Emmylou Harris albums. But a full blown teaming of what was to be subtitled “the sisterhood of song” was still risky.

The Complete Trio Collection - Trio,Dolly Parton,Emmylou Harris,Linda Ronstadt | Songs, Reviews, Credits | AllMusic
Talking about the first time she harmonized with Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt in 1975, Dolly Parton said, "We all got to singin' and it was absolutely incredible. It gives me chills, even now." Given Parton's remarkable life and career, one would imagine it would take a lot to prompt that reaction, but there's no false modesty in Dolly's words. Parton, Harris, and Ronstadt were all splendid vocalists on their own, but they'd also shown a talent for collaborating with others throughout their careers. And when the like-minded women decided to make an album together, they created something rare, a collaboration between three major stars that never smacks of ego. Parton, Harris, and Ronstadt brought out the best in one another on their brilliant 1987 album, Trio, with the group harmonies sounding even more glorious than their lead vocals. (Trio also found Parton and Ronstadt working with better and more flattering material than they'd had on their solo albums in quite a while.) Trio was enough of a success that the singers carved out time in their busy schedules to make another album together, 1999's Trio II, with similarly impressive results. Ronstadt's health prevents her from making another Trio album in the 21st century, but Rhino Records have given us the next best thing with The Complete Trio Collection. This three-disc set brings together Trio and Trio II in full with a bonus disc of 20 outtakes and alternate versions recorded during the sessions for the original albums. Both Trio and Trio II have aged quite well, especially the first album with its emphasis on acoustic, bluegrass-influenced arrangements that blend well with three-part harmonies. (As Harris quips in the liner notes, they were playing Americana music before it had a name.) And if disc three often covers material that appears elsewhere in the set, Parton, Harris, and Ronstadt tried enough different approaches to these songs that the variants still sound fresh, and the performances are a knockout throughout. At the end of an unreleased take of "You Don't Knock," Harris quietly says, "That one felt real good," and like Dolly, she speaks the truth. For fans of the original Trio albums, buying The Complete Trio Collection to get the disc of unreleased takes might seem a bit excessive, but for anyone with a taste for great country or folk singing who has never heard Parton, Harris, and Ronstadt's work together, this set is nothing less than essential.

J.K. Rowling reviews Violent Femmes’ debut album after listening to it the first time | Consequence of Sound
The Harry Potter author realizes that where you listen to music really matters
J.K. Rowling had somehow made it to the year 2016 without hearing the Violent Femmes’ self-titled debut, so she was a perfect guest for Ruth and Martin’s Album Club. The blog picks a guest every week, has them listen to a classic album that they’ve never heard and asks for their honest opinion on the matter.

Sony ZD9 uhd-topmodel Review - Conclusie - Tweakers
Het voordeel van dit scherm tov de OLED schermen vind ik de weergave van bijna zwart. Ik heb beide schermen in het echt gezien (LG 65E6 en G6 en de 65ZD9). En de OLED schermen raken soms wat detail kwijt in de schaduw partijen. Het contrast is wel veel indrukwekkender maar de helderheid van de ZD9 is weer veel indrukwekkender.
Beide zijn top schermen. Het zal liggen aan persoonlijke voorkeur wie welke beter vind.

Sony ZD9 uhd-topmodel Review - Inputlag, gebruik met pc en 3d - Tweakers
De 3d-weergave werkt goed; doordat het beeld van de tv erg helder is, wordt er ruimschoots gecorrigeerd voor het lichtverlies van de 3d-brillen. Het 3d-beeld is niet alleen helder, er is ook niet al te veel crosstalk te zien. Helaas is het knipperen van de bril wel duidelijk te zien als je in een helder verlichte kamer kijkt. Dit probleem is flink te verminderen door in het donker te gaan kijken, maar zo rustig als bij passieve brillen wordt het beeld niet. We vinden het dan ook jammer dat Sony niet voor passieve 3d-brillen heeft gekozen, want die kennen op een uhdtv eigenlijk geen nadelen en zijn bovendien veel goedkoper als je extra brillen nodig hebt.
