Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris - Live On Soundstage

Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris - Live On Soundstage at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles

Aired last night on WHUR and ripped to my hard drive today is a pretty cool performance from Mark and Emmylou. A great venue, a great tour, two great artists and a great performance. So it was for icons Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles before a sold-out crowd. Their concert together, one of only a handful in the U.S., followed the release of All the Roadrunning, their long-awaited rootsy collaboration. That special night has been captured in this unique Soundstage episode. Highlights include the title track “All the Roadrunning,” Emmylou’s “Red Dirt Girl” and Knopfler’s “Speedway at Nazareth".

Here's a link for another Emmy Lou Harris Show.
Sent to me via email from Bob.
The man with all those WHFS tapes.
Hi. nice to see you back posting at your blog. We
missed you. I found the following vintage Emmylou
Harris WHFS concert broadcast from 1976 on another
blog and thought I would pass this along to you if you
don't already have a copy of it in your collection.

take care.


Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band - Washington DC 1976

This is Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band at the opening
night of the Warner Theater, Washington DC, USA on the
28th March 1976.

'Elite Hotel', released in December 1975, established
that the buzz created by the previous album 'Pieces of
the Sky' was well-founded.

Unusual for country albums at the time, which largely
revolved around a hit single, Emmylou's' albums
borrowed their approach from the album-oriented rock
market, in terms of quality and artistic merit.

Tracks like "Sin City", "Wheels", and "Till I Gain
Control Again", which weren't singles, easily stood
against tracks like "Together Again", "Sweet Dreams",
and "One of These Days", which were.

While 'Elite Hotel' was a number 1 country album, the
album did sufficiently well with the rock audience.
'Elite Hotel' won a Grammy in 1976 for Best Country
Vocal Performance, Female.

Legendary DC Concert Promoter Mike Schreibman was
responsible for the reopening of the Warner Theater in
downtown DC.

This Emmylou Show was the first show in the revamped
2000-seat acoustically-perfect vaudeville house.

The concert was broadcast on WHFS-FM 102.3 -Homegrown
Radio, from back in those 'sorely missed days' - no
playlists, knowledgeable DJs, and support for
homegrown artists like Emmylou, who here returns

These are the notes from 'Richard F' who recorded the
show. ' I taped the show off the radio, and the
cassette has held up remarkably well. I did miss
taping the opening number and most of "San Antone
Rose" as well as "Till I Can Gain Control Again" and
most of "Jambalaya" during the tape flip. Thanks to
Deborah N, I received all missing tracks except for
"Till I Can Gain Control Again" from her source. Dave
T then located the elusive missing track'.

The show has been edited together and sensitively

Set list is:

01 Intro
02 Cash on the Barrelhead
03 San Antonio Rose
04 Coat of Many Colors
05 Feeling Single, Seeing Double
06 If I Could only Win Your Love
07 Too Far Gone
08 Amarillo
09 Tonight the Bottle Let me Down
10 Tulsa Queen
11 Bluebird Wine
12 Band intros
13 Wheels
14 Till I Can Gain Control Again
15 Jambalaya
16 Ooh Las Vegas
17 Satan's Jewel Crown *
18 Forty Days
19 Outro

The band line up was:

The Hot Band:
Glen D, Hardin, piano
Rodney Crowell, rhythm guitar, harmony vocals
Emory Gordy Bass, banjo, high harmony
John Ware, drums
Hank De Vito, pedal steel, Dobro
Albert Lee, lead guitar

* Guests:
Fayssoux Starling, vocal
John Starling, vocal, acoustic guitar
Mike Auldridge, Dobro

Sound quality is predominately very good (FM stereo
radio sourced).

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
