Seattle 1999 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Bumbershoot Festival, Seattle, WA; September 5, 1999. Good to fairly good audience recording.

The sound isn’t pristine… this one’s for the collectors and hardcore fans.

This is what Peter Blackstock wrote at

“We’ve been talking about doing this since 1973,” Linda Ronstadt said a couple songs into her Bumbershoot show yesterday with Emmylou Harris, referring to their new duet album. Judging from the warm reception they received from the Memorial Stadium crowd, it’s indeed a long-overdue collaboration…

About half of their 16-song set was devoted to material from “Western Wall.” After opening with the disc’s first track, “Loving the Highwayman,” they performed Jackson Browne’s “For a Dancer,” which has been getting the most radio play so far. It’s one of Browne’s best tunes and deserves to be revived, but the duo’s easygoing pop treatment avoids the emotional pathos that’s at the heart of the song…

For a brief time, the evening turned into the Emmylou & Linda & Kate & Anna McGarrigle Show. The McGarrigle sisters, who performed later last night at the Opera House, have collaborated often with both Harris and Ronstadt, including on the “Western Wall” album and their own recent disc, “The McGarrigle Hour.” Thus, it was no surprise to see them join the party and contribute backing vocal on three songs in the latter part of the set.

  13. darth wrong again.Will it never end.heres the thing.darth could start his own blog or a facebook page easily and wouldnt have to worry about anybody ‘harassing’ him.he could refuse to publish there comments or block them.but he doesnt.he keeps putting his crap up here were he has to put up with all us ‘idiots.’ so why is that. its obvious.he knows nobodyd ever to to his blog or freind him on facebook.the only way he can get any attention at all is to be a troll on sites like this and youtube.
