Day 232

Emmylou Harris- Pieces Of The Sky

I listened to this last night after Hall & Oates, but it was after midnight so technically it was today.

This was Emmylou's first solo album following the death of longtime collaborator, Gram Parsons. I got it for super cheap (.50 cents) because it looks completely ratted, but the record itself is scratch free. That's really all that matters to me.

Really good record too. But then just about all of Emmylou's records are really good. Unfortunately this is the only one I have on vinyl, but got some others on my hard drive.

I had the pleasure of seeing her a few years ago with Linda Ronstadt at Bass. Man, talk about a great show. Then this year, I didn't make it in time to see her at Antone's during SXSW, but she was standing near us before the Old 97's show. I'm not sure how old she is now, but damn she still looks good! Sammy Llanas wrote the song "Looking For Me Somewhere" about his crush on Emmylou Harris and I can understand why.
