Profile II: The Best of Emmylou Harris is a compilation of hits by Emmylou Harris originally from five of her albums released between 1979 and 1983 (Blue Kentucky Girl, Roses in the Snow, Cimarron, Last Date, and White Shoes), plus two singles, "Mister Sandman" from 1981, and "Someone Like You", a new tune which became a Billboard #26 country hit in early 1985. "Mister Sandman" is a different recording from the one which appeared on Harris's 1981 Evangeline album, and lacks the backup vocals of Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt featured on Evangeline.
