    Just wondering if there are any other Emmylou Harris fans here, and if they're planning on purchasing her latest (due out tomorrow)? Both Amazon and EW have given the disc great reviews.

    I bought it today, and it's a beautiful disc. It's a little lighter and a lot less dense than Red Dirt Girl. She has the usual cast of characters backing her up (Buddy & Julie Miller, Daniel Lanois, Malcolm Burn), and it's a very strong effort.

    I'm going to see Buddy & Julie Miller at Carnegie Hall next month, and a few nights later, Emmylou Harris at Carnegie. Should be fun.

    As a side note, I just bought Emmylou Harris' Producer's Cut DVD-Audio disc. If you're an Emmylou fan and have a DVD-Audio player, than you have to buy this disc. I played it for my mom and dad the other night (who were huge fans back in the day). You should have seen their faces. I wish I had taken a picture. They were blown away! The whole disc is stunning, from first to last track.

    Jeff,

    I agree with you all the way on Producer's Cut. The lyrics alone stir my emotions, but, when you have Emmylou's angelic voice delivering them, they are sent into high alert. And, besides, she has that duet with the man in black. What a wonderful addition to her portfolio.

    I was home sick yesterday, and happened to see Emmylou perform "Strong Hand" on "Live with Regis & Kelly". It was really good, maybe even better than the album version. It may have had something to do with the fact that she was only a few days removed from attending Johnny Cash's funeral, but she was obviously really feeling it. They mentioned the upcoming Carnegie Hall gig in the interview.

    Regards,

    Jeffrey Wiffen,

    I agree. However I think Producers Cut is more about her producer than Emmylou so I hope we will see more from her on DVD Audio. [​IMG]

    I used to be a huge Harris fan....

    A couple of years ago, I won backstage passes to one of her concerts...

    What a waste of time..Rude, arrogant, and impatient. She took one look at her biggest fans in the area, "after" the concert, mumbled something not nice and left...30 seconds tops is all the time afforded...
