Any Emmylou Harris fans in the crowd?
While messing around with some home recording, my girlfriend suggested doing 'Bluebird wine', Great..so i learnt as much as i could, guitar, mandolin, bit of banjo, and put down a backing track to the original tempo. She sang it sweet to the original track as a guide, Great #2. Come mixing and bouncing time, i realised either i'd tuned flat or the original wasn't concert. Not so Great, ended up doing my parts all over, as she quite rightly would'nt do it again.
The track she did with Krauss and Welch 'Didn't Leave Nobody But The Baby' is one of my favorites from O'Brother.Those three ladies harmonizing gives chills in a good way.
I grew up listening to her on steady rotation in my dad's car. When I worked in a coffee shop, I turned her up real loud at the end of the night to run the bratty teenagers out so I could close up shop.
Didn't get her when my Dad used to make us listen to her at the house or in the car (is there a theme here???)
Yeah she's an old hippy and I probably don't agree with her politics, but I get her music now and she is still pretty damn hot.
Deed, you travel in some fine company . . . thanks for posting that lovely photo.
Love her voice and yes, she's still drop dead gorgeous.
Amen... I saw her in 1974w/ the original Hot Band at Tanglewood (MA) in the first row, about 15' from James Burton....
OMG, as they say ... a life changing event ... I was a fan of hers from way back when she first made the great recordings w/ Gram Parsons, and still am ....
I just read that she is going to be performing in the Boise area in June this year with the Red Dirt Band.
Too bad I'm broke....
I love Emmylou. I have most of her albums and have seen her perform many times.
What does everyone have against hippies? I love hippies!
I am a huge Emmy Lou fan...and of course Gram Parsons! His version of Cash on the Barrel head is with James Burton on guitar...wow. Emmy Lou inherited the HOT BAND From Gram Parsons when he passed away in 1973. I saw the Hot Band when they were Elvis Presley's band in 1971....wonderful musicians...
I've always been a big Emmylou fan.
Oddly enough, one of my all-time favorite songs from her was one that was originally a Poco song. Check out the great harmonies, and especially look at her huge jumbo guitar. I always liked that she slung a big guitar.
Loved her music from the day I first heard her, then I saw her photo. It's OK, Pat knows!
A wonderful voice singing either lead or harmony and rightly loved for it by many including us.
We went to several Emmy Lou & Hot Band gigs in the 70s. Fabulous music.
Boulder To Birmingham is still hard to listen to for us old hippies who not only miss Gram Parsons but also, over the years, have lost too many who were dear to them.
