5.0 out of 5 stars Cowboy Angels 31 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was also at the 1976 concert at The Liverpool Empire, although I was most definitely there to see Emmylou herself, whose superb singing I'd first heard on Gram Parson's "GP" album. I remember lending that album to a longstanding country music fan who was actually unimpressed by Gram but was very taken with the "girl singer" and suggested that she would go far! The "Cowboy Angels" album takes us back to the very early days of Emmylou's post-Parsons solo career and, for that reason alone, is a must for any fan. Apart from the vocals, the individual musicianship of the great talents making up the first version of The Hot Band is very evident throughout. The only qualification I would make is that, at the time of this radio concert, the musicians were in the early stages of working together and I felt that the overall sound on the album is not as "tight" as it was to become on record and in live performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everlasting enjoyment from Emmylou... 9 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In 1976 I saw Emmylou and the Hot Band at the Liverpool Empire and it was one of the best nights out I ever had, especially as I got to shake hands with the great James Burton after the show! One of the many highlights was seeing James play his Telecaster behind his head during the song 'Shop Around!' This CD was recorded for a radio show in 1975 and features songs that became classics of Emmylou's repertoire. The sound is mostly fine though on one song it dips slightly. As Rodney Crowell said it is easy to fall in love with Emmylou and some years later I met the lady and she gave me a hug when I told her it was my birthday! A very welcome addition to my collection of music. Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Original Live Emmylou 17 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since the first time I came across Emmylou Harris was at a concert in 1977 (one of her earliest in the UK), it was great to be able to acquire a concert recording from the same era.
Often live recordings are very thin and generally poor, but this one certainly is not; the fact that it includes a few less well known numbers is a bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as I remembered? No, much better. 16 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some things stay in your mind over the years, and you begin to wonder 'was it really like that or is my memory p[laying tricks?'. One cold rainy night in November 1975 I made my way to the Victoria Palace Theatre in London to see the new queen of country with her appropriately named 'Hot Band'. My friend had sold me the ticket on the basis of the opportunity to see legends James Burton and Glen D Hardin on stage in the UK - throw in Emory Gordy on bass and the former First National Band drummer John Ware, how could I resist? I'd heard the Gram Parsons albums, of course, but that was Emmy as a backing vocalist, not front and centre, and I'd never heard of Rodney Crowell at all then, though I went out and bought all his albums in the week after the gig. Anyhow, my memory has this down as one of the best gigs I've ever seen, and then low and behold, a radio recording from just a month or two before the London gig surfaces. What to do? Run the risk of ruining a memory or missing out on a possibly all-time great recording? So I bought it, and yes, the band is amazing, the singing is wonderful, the song choices from Emmy's time with Gram and the rest from the new album about to be released in the coming weeks excellent. This, along with the sadly still illegal Emmy/James Burton album, are THE albums to have for any lover of country rock. If you like country/Emmy then buy this - if you're not sure, buy it - and if you hate country, but love great songs played exceptionally well by almost the best group of musicians assembled on one stage anytime anywhere, buy it. Yes, it's that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smokin' Hot Band 29 April 2013
By Dod
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Arguably country's greatest female singer, and best-ever backing band, recording a terrific live set on American radio. They are at the peak of their powers, between Emmylou's debut LP Pieces of the Sky and the follow-up Elite Hotel, and more than half the set comes from these albums. She also dips into her career-changing time with Gram Parsons for Cash on the Barrelhead, That's All It Took, Return of the Grievous Angel, and Cry One More Time. The only real surprise is a great take on Smokey Robinson's Shop Around, which she and the band attack with real energy; there is a touch of Janis Joplin to her phrasing and style here.
The Hot Band are impeccable as ever and tight as a drum. What makes this disc worth having even if you have the studio albums is the extra edge to the playing and a bite to the sound that a studio album can't ever capture.
Listen to her fabulous interpretation of Dolly Parton's Coat of many Colours. If you think you know the song, listen to the passion and tenderness in her voice, and the subtle way the Hot Band slowly slide in behind her. It's worth the price of the CD itself, and the audience applause confirms how wonderful it is.
I never quite understood until now why James Burton was the guitarist of choice for Elvis; possibly because he can play these mesmerising runs note for note as on the albums. He is solid as a rock and fast as lightning, and on perfectly judged solos that are over before lesser guitarists would be able to tune-up. The band also includes star musicians like duet singer Rodney Crowell, pianist Glen D Hardin and Hank DeVito on pedal steel.
I had the privilege of seeing this line-up at the Glasgow Apollo round about this time. Emmylou is still making great records, but nothing has touched the quality and freshness of her early work.
A wonderful discovery. Cannot recommend too highly.

Emmylou is as good as ever. This album is slightly different to her previous album but is very good indeed.

Emmylou Harris was the "chick singer" (her ironic words, not mine) who put the life and bounce into the Gram Parsons discs and shows in the time leading up to his death in 1973. Read more
