Subject: Emmylou Harris Alert!
From: Peter T.
Date: 29 Aug 00 - 05:56 PM

Public Service Announcement:

This week's New Yorker has a brief piece on the forthcoming Coen Brother's film, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and the documentary of the music from the film performed at a concert in the Ryman in Nashville. A picture accompanies this article. Included in this picture are (1) Gillian Welch; (2) John Hartford; (3) The Peasall Sisters; (4) Ralph Stanley; and

(5) Emmylou. This is the great picture of Emmylou you have all been waiting for, guys (well, the fully clothed picture, anyway). Trust me. New Yorker, issue of Sept 4, pages 68-69.

yours, Peter T.

I liked her better when her hair was long! Just enjoyed a really good Austin City Limits last Saturday night on PBS. She hosted a song circle with Buddy(?) Martin, Dave Mathews and a couple of others whose names I can't remember.

I saw that one awhile back kat......really wonderful and a very different Dave Mathews.

Ah. but sweet Emmy.........She brought something different to Country and added so much. In many ways a true folksinger as she is well versed and an excellent performer of the mountain songs as well as early country. Not everyone likes that voice, but for me, there is none like it and her many associations over the years have given her a versatility almost unmatched. I never tire of hearing or seeing her.

Gotta' go get a copy of the New Yorker..........Cletus can use the rest of it for whatever..........gawd, I don't even want to think about him reading it.

What Joe says is true, it's true. Dear Emmylou just has that effect on us. Even a hard-bitten, miles-on-the-road type like Steve Earle gets all mushy and chivalric when Emmylou comes up. I've been hopelessly, head-over-heels in love with the girl ever since the first time I listened to her vocals on Gram Parsons' "Grievous Angel" in 1985. It's a one-sided affair, it's true, but I think my wife suspects. :-)

So, uhm, did somebody say they were gonna scan the New Yorker photo?????

Soddy, I'm pretty sure the album title was also Roses in the Snow. It's the first traditional/old-time country/bluegrass sort of album I ever really liked. It led me down the path to the wayward state I'm in today, musically speaking. *BG*

Emmylou!!! Oh,yeah.

First time I saw her was inthe early 70's on a country music award show. They were showcasing supposed up and coming talent. Don't remember any of the rest, but they had 120 pounds of Emmylou stuffed into a 90 pound pair of jeans. Just knew she would go far.

So her live twice after that. Great shows.

My husband brought umpteen gazillion Emmylou recordings AND Bonnie Raitt recordings to our marriage. I have got to see both of them live (not at the same time, though!), and I sold home accessories to Emmylou's mother when I worked at a furniture store several years ago. (Emmy came in with her!)

So I told Mister, if my hair goes gray, it's just goin gray, like Emmylou. Well, he said that's okay by him.

TarHeel....that was exactly the right flavor. She IS all those things. Wonderful woman.

I too got hooked on Roses in the Snow which was a fantastic album. I like the way she goes back and explores the roots of several genres.

And for my money, "Prayer in Open D" is one of the best songs ever written. Not too many songs that put the blame on our lives in the right place...ourselves.

While I was doing an audition at a club in Georgetown many years ago, Emmylou was rehearsing in another room. If you think she's gorgeous now, you should have seen her then, my boys. I couldn't even say hello, I think I smiled and I know I nodded, but I damn sure couldn't say anything. And then she sang. Surpassing beauty.

If she'd played her cards right she could have had me.

What is your implication here, Mountain Tyme? That Emmylou won't give me the time of day?
I went to the library today and looked for the New Yorker. The September 4 issue hasn't reached California yet. Still, the previous issue had two great stories by Isaac Bashevis Singer. If you haven't read singer, you're missing something.
Hmmm. I wonder if Emmylou likes Jewish authors...

(Worth another trip, Joe, believe me).
As with virtually everything else, I am in total agreement with Cp. "The shadows filling up this land, are the ones I built with my own hand". Perfect line. As I have been working on open D, I went straight for this one. (can't do the 13th fret stuff alas). This song has the same quality as "Boulder to Birmingham" (a truly great song) -- she has the very rare ability to take old religious phrases and make them new, salting them with striking fresh images ("and the rock of ages I have known, is a weariness down in the bone"; "the last time I felt like this, I was in the wilderness and the canyon was on fire, and I stood on the mountain in the night and I watched it burn). It is impressive because it is so hard to do without it going really bad. Dylan (to connect threads) did it; Leonard Cohen overdid it, but made it work occasionally. This is a very elite league. It requires absolutely impeccable taste (in the artistic sense). I wonder where she got that style from -- not from Parsons, as far as I can tell.

yours, Peter T.

Now, tyme, if'n you'd have said "deluded," I'd surely cop to that. But ref. above: Emmy has that effect on men. She makes us goony.

But "duped?" Surely you're not suggesting that our Em has been toying with us all these years? Say it ain't so!

Oh, and for those (like me) who are waitin' to see the picture of Emmylou from the New Yorker, www.emmylou.net has a marvelous gallery of concert photos from over the years, as well as lots of bio stuff, Gram stuff, etc.

No, no. I totally do. I meant it. It's cute to see a bunch of guys so unabashed in their admiration and crush on someone who appears to be a really nice woman, in addition to her musical talents and physical beauty.

If she was some big-bazoomed bimbo, I wouldn't think it was cute, I'd think it was icky. But then you all are far too classy to get all mushy over some big-bazoomed bimbo, aren't ya? Aren't ya? WEll, yes, except for Catspaw, of course ...

I had exactly the same hairdo in 1975. Does that count? (Of course, every other young woman in the U.S. and much of the rest of the world did as well, but hey ... )

Hi guys......This came up one time before when we were discussing Gibsons or something and Rick brought up Glen Reid then. She is of course mentioned on his website as is Rick, but I have rarely seen Emmylou anywhere without a J Gibson as her guitars. Last time I saw her live, she swapped guitars several times and all four used were Gibson J's. I'm sure Rick will have info and although I'm sure she probably loves Glen Reid Instruments, she also has a LONG association with Gibson as you can see from the NAMM 2000 Show(scroll to the bottom for the "Gibson Girl").

I was going to make some wise-ass remark about the steno reference until I read the article. I see your point. That's an excellent piece and one of the best I've read about her. One line is the best description of her I have ever encountered and though it was written in regard to appearance, I think it describes Emmylou Harris musically and in all other ways as well.........

A couple of years ago in my office we got into a version of this same discussion and one of the other employees said something about a woman we all knew who was of the Pamela Anderson variety. And all the guys starting saying, "Whoo-hoo" and "Oh,yeah ... " You know, the usual articulate response. And I said, "Guys. Those are plastic bags. That's just little silicon or saline-filled baggies."

They all fell silent for a minute or two, then Tom shrugged and said, in a sentence that sums up an area of significant difference between (some) men and (many) women: "I don't care. They're still hooters."

Now back to Emmylou: What do you guys think about her hair, now that she's surrendered to the gray? Does that affect your affection?
