Artist: Emmylou Harris

Waxed - Record Review from Issue #24 Nov-Dec 1999

Linda Ronstadt – Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions

Building the Arizona Inn in Tucson kept Isabella Greenway busy for a while after she left Congress. She filled it with furniture bought from an organization she founded to provide work for disabled war veterans.

The Long Way Around - Feature from Issue #17 Sept-Oct 1998

Emmylou Harris – Wrecking Ball

Though Emmylou Harris’ new album is titled Wrecking Ball, that could also be the description of the tool Daniel Lanois brings into the producer’s booth and attacks Harris’ past efforts with. This album is so unlike Harris’ other albums that when I played it at a recent backyard barbecue, all eight people there came up [...]
