Well, I'm delighted to see this.
I have long held the theory (and I will admit to being in a minority) that Emmylou could have had a successful career without having
encountered Gram Parsons and I would use this footage to support my case.
She looks and sounds good, especially for someone in the late stages of pregnancy. Her style is derivative but most singers are like that in the
early days. I has intrigued to see her using a thumb pick - I've never seen her use one before. I've always thought her guitar playing was under-rated
and we see her having a very competent style in the folk idiom.
She's always been very dismissive of the Gliding Bird album but the fault, imo, was pretty unsympathetic, at times, dire production and backing.
6 out of the 10 songs were originals (one by Slocum, 5 by herself) which is quite demanding for the potential record buyer. I reckon there's half a decent
and if some good pickers had been used...
But the record didn't sell and her marriage collapsed - and the rest is history.
By the way the correct title if Fugue For The Fox.
I'm gonna tell you how it's gonna be
