Album Review

Circles Within Circles

Various Artists - The Life & Songs of Emmylou Harris

this collection would be much better had they included all of the performances on the audio CD.

Milk Carton Kids performing "Michelangelo" was one of the best performances of the evening. Trampled By Turtles and Sara Watkins were also terrific. I'd like to be able to enjoy all the performances again, not just the most marketable names on the bill (who were terrific as well).

Agree wholeheartedly. I was at the show, and those three performances were in my top 5 for the evening. I wish they would make those tracks available for download at the very least.

Just a suggestion...

I've used a piece of free software called DVD Audio Extractor for several years. It's easy to rip individual songs from a DVD soundtrack as WAV files.

Weird but not surprising to define Gram Parsons simply as "the harmony partner who brought her into the public eye, and whose memory she has kept alive." Gram was Emmylou's mentor and teacher, she was his harmony partner. She'll be the first to tell you that and that she wouldn't be here without him. Also many have kept Gram's memory alive, more with each new generation.
