Los Angeles 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at The Wiltern, Los Angeles, CA; April 3, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Emmylou Harris’s “Wrecking Ball” was reissued on April 8, 2014 (first came out in 1995) in a deluxe three-disc set; the first is a remaster of the original album, the second a disc with bonus material including unreleased songs and alternate takes, and the third is a DVD containing a making-of documentary. Beyond that, Harris and Daniel Lanois are doing a limited tour in support of the reissue, a rarity in the world of vintage recordings.

“This album’s obviously very special to me,” said Harris, 67, whose tour in support of the reissue stops April 3 at the Wiltern Theatre. She’ll perform with the record’s producer and collaborator, Daniel Lanois.

“Daniel and I have done shows together in the last few years - mainly benefits - and we just love playing those songs,” she said from her home in Nashville. “It shows our affection for this record that we’ll go to the trouble of doing the reissue and touring.”

“We didn’t tour it a lot when it first came out in ‘95, so a lot of people didn’t know about it then,” she said. “But one person would tell another person, and it’s nice when it happens that way on its own.”

In a sense, “Wrecking Ball” provided an ambitious and richly textured template for the coalescing Americana music movement before it took on that name. The music was rooted in country, folk, gospel and blues, but with Lanois’ sonic wizardry in the mix, it also had an experimental edge that took it well beyond musical archaeology.

  3. Thanks, bigO!

    By NAMoosedog on May 28, 2014

  4. Thanks So much Big O
    Important Emmylou here I reckon and know the whole Wrecking Ball project to be so. ‘Boulder to Birmingham’ is a favourite seminal song

    (on another issue Big O could you not at least try to insist that people stick to the purpose of the posting - a TV listing for the US is nothing to do with your posting and by no means is any kind of “response to” Emmylou’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ project. If I want to know what’s on my TeeVee I buy a paper with the listings in and I certainly have no need to know what’s on in other countries. Neither do I log in to a wonderful music website based in Singapore to find out what’s on the ruddy tele in America!)

    Just saying . . . it is just too too tiresome

    By swappers on May 29, 2014

  5. swappers is right.

  6. Recorded by THE Charlie Miller? Say no more. Thanks to all!

  7. Should I get this?

    By just joking on May 29, 2014

  8. just - if u like emmylou. yes. how can anyone else determine if u should dl something? cant u make your own decisions on what to own? if someone in particular knew what u might like based on previous knowledge of your taste etc. i could see u asking this. but u didnt ask anyone in particular. u could check the quality of a song or two. its a bit distant but relatively decent sounding.

    By darth on May 29, 2014

  9. monkey - no hes not. each posting is for anyone who wishes to read it. i dont post for all. and where the blog is based out of isnt important. the majority of readers are in the usa. u dont have to read my postings. u can actually bypass them. so can swappers. just as we can ignore his complaints. or your cheering him on.
    the postings i make about tv appearances of musicians are for live performances. ppl who come to this area of this site are into live music. they download free live music. my announcements are for the people who might be interested in seeing artists who are on tv doing live performances of songs. this isnt really that difficult to figure out. even u can put 2 and 2 together here.

  12. see my response to that above. the majority of readers are in the usa. thats why every one knows you are a wanker hey darth theres a big world out there get your head out of your ass people the world over love music its just they dont like your crap cheers

    By the duke on May 30, 2014

  13. the duke is right

    By monkeyass on May 30, 2014

  14. Monkey is right that Duke is right. “darth” (if that is really your name), give it up. Email your friends your inane TV drivel.

    By Dubious141 on May 30, 2014

  15. dubious 141 is right , your tv listings are ridiculous and serve nothing but another way for you to require attention.

    By monkeyass on May 30, 2014

  16. Thanks, BigO. Wrecking Ball is a “vintage” recording. Now I really feel old.

    By drkrick on May 30, 2014

  17. it may not be my name. then again dubious isnt yours. wtf!?!?!
    evidently youre not getting this. u may need to re-read the posting i made about why i post the comments i do about the tv appearances that i offer when it comes to live performances.

    if u dont want to give me the attention u claim i want then why are u giving it to me in droves? your logic is flawed.

    By darth on May 30, 2014

  18. your logic is flawed

    and yours of course is perfect in that little tiny darth world u live in

    By monkeyass on May 31, 2014

  19. without anything to prove otherwise.. yes it is perfect. u being sarcastic and saying it is perfect (and clearly meaning it isnt) doesnt really prove your point.
    i however have proven what i claimed. thus spake darth-ethustra. hehe.

    By darth on May 31, 2014

  20. . . . and still you don’t get it
    Still you have nothing to say “in response” to the posting of an EMMYLOU HARRIS posting by BIG O . . which is the purpose of the postings Darth as you are well aware. If you wish to discuss the teevee listing where you are, start your own blog and talk to till your jaw is tired and your fingers bleed over there.

    You start a comments thread about a gig that Big O post of Emmylou Harris and Daniel Lanois with a list of what’s one your Teevee! This bears no relation to the posting and you say nothing about it. Even if it were buried in the comments thread would be better than starting a thread with your interminable ramblings that as far as I can see no-one ever has said how much they appreciate this useless redundant service you offer! It just clearly irritates everyone else and my question was to Big O as to whether they couldn’t actually do something about it as the joke (that you are) is clearly fading by now and merely irritates the heck out of the rest of us. I am sure Big O have been creasing themselves laughing at your antics but puhleeze! Enough, already!

    “monkey - no he’s not” Hilarious! I was asking Big O a question you cretinous retard. A question is neither right or wrong. It still stands . . and was addressed to them

    Please muster all your strength and what little intellectual capacity you have left after your synapses have been clearly blasted with so much electricity and get the hell off the Big O page and go watch your teevee in your trailer or we’ll send the manager round to question you about those plants you have growing in your chemical toilet.

    You are a sad little man in a sad little world please endeavour to the best of your clearly limited abilities and stop inflicting your inane drivel upon the rest of us!

    I thank you!

    By swappers on May 31, 2014

  21. applause and a standing O for swappers.

    By monkeyass on May 31, 2014

  22. nice tribute blog

    By monkeyass on May 31, 2014

  23. its incredible that u refuse to get this. i didnt happen to choose to dl the emmylou item. i didnt have a comment to make about the above item. my purpose was to be seen by as many as possible since it was a newly posted item. nothing forces u to read my comments. while it is fine and good and wonderful and would be great if all comments for any item reflect the topic of such.. thats not absolutely necessary. and its not such a huge deal. u dont make the rules. its not your site and youre trying to push your way on me. its not up to a democratic vote what goes on here. and in fact it should be because its a democracy that voted that we should have the right to say what we wish. its not as if my posting about the tv performances of live music on a live music blog. hello?!?! is that offensive. u may not like what i do but u should be defending to the death my right to do it. i know u arent in my country but u should still think of our inalienable rights as being the same. even tho we had to get away from your country for the freedoms we have here.

    i know where u are its all about controlling the people. u are acting like a fascist here. this isnt a fascist dictatorship unless the moderator wants to make it so. there are sites that are run that way. if u dont like the way this one is being run.. dont read the comments or dont come here. i am not complaining about what u do. well actually i am. this harassment is a waste of time. please stop it. i dont wanna have to come to this site and have to read the shit u keep pushing on us. thats not going to stop u is it? u would rather go back and forth and waste room with this crap. but a single posting once a week about tv performances of musicians like we find on here thats wrong. seek help u idiot.

    By darth on Jun 1, 2014

  24. That would be funny darth were it not so sad . . . .

    By swappers on Jun 1, 2014

  25. …”my purpose was to be seen by as many as possible ..”

    there u have it in a nutshell.an attention seeking idiot who listens to no one.
    Emmylou`s music and post deserve so much better than your tv drivel .

    By monkeyass on Jun 1, 2014

  26. its not for attention. its for awareness. that im the one posting the info isnt the important detail here. the info is. i could be posting it on any name. i could put the name 12345 and u would of course know it was still me. that isnt the point of course. i am not the one getting the attention. well unless u choose to give it to me by spending 10-20 postings harassing me about my posting. which makes no sense whatsoever. consider that u cry about this attn then u spend all this energy giving it to me. huh?
    and then swap says it would be funny? its not funny at all. its all fact. what didnt u understand about what i said in my last 2 paragraphs above? i tried to dumb it down for u. even u should understand most of what i said to u. seriously.
    whats sad is that u dont think i should have the same rights u have. and u think its acceptable to censor some people according to what u think is right / wrong. like u should have a say on a blog that isnt yours while claiming it isnt mine. dont u see the irony and the hipocrisy of that??

    By darth on Jun 1, 2014

  27. u must have been a lovely child darth, too bad u never grew up.

    By oneloser on Jun 2, 2014

  32. no mo darth tv

    By barth on Jun 2, 2014

  33. OK let’s try one last time to educate the blathering fool:

    I don’t refuse to get anything. I understand you only too well. You are sirrah, are an idiot!

    1/ my point IS exactly, you DIDN’T “comment”

    2/ you posted an American TV listing for people’s “awareness” (sic) ?!? How patronising can one eejit get?

    3/Who in their right minds would go looking for what’s on television in America on a website based in Singapore? Over here they’re published daily in the newspapers there, over there next to the funny papers

    4 /I started off by commenting on the wonderful posting of an Emmylou Harris bootleg. I have a great deal of respect for the Big O guys and how their site is run, the only exception being it would be better to me if you were edited out

    My additional comment was a question to Big O that asked could they not step in now and ask you to cease and desist from irritating the rest of us on here, as you can plainly see, to stop this ludicrous attention seeking nonsense by posting irrelevant and time limited drivelling nonsense that is pretty much obsolete as soon as it’s posted

    I can only assume by the lack of reply from Big O that they are still having WAY too much fun laughing their socks off reading the responses from the assembled folk who can still bother to try winding you up (how IS that working for you?) when they reply to your inane drooling

    5/ What on earth makes you think this is a democracy darth? It isn’t, it’s a music blog run by wonderfully kind people run through Singapore who have the final say on everything here and as such you know they have asked some folks to cease and desist pretending to be other than they are. Would that they could ask you to pretend to become someone else or go away entirely. Yeah, that would work.

    6/ Please look up the term ‘fascism’ in a dictionary, or Google if you must. You may well find more pertinent and apposite examples than my asking if you could not be politely asked to stop your inane dribbling. While you are at it look up ‘irony’ & “hipocracy” if you can’t spell ask a grown up.

    7/ Fascinating to learn you must have gone over on the Mayflower away from the land that bore you. Didn’t realise you could still survive that long. Racism of a this lazy yellow journalistic kind is beneath contempt and actually bordering on the insane.

    8/ “i didnt happen to choose to dl the emmylou item. i didnt have a comment to make about the above item” – the section in which you were first to post your TV listing is called “Responses” that is to Big O postings – even you can work that out I would. imagine but it looks like that’s a bit of a stretch

    9 –I am not harassing you. You replied to people responding to my question to Big O, how is that my harassing you? It rather feels like you harassing me as you started by telling monkey that I was wrong! By asking a question – don’t you know that are no wrong questions you feculent dribbling retard. Mind you as you can plainly see I am beginning to warm to the idea as you are clearly incapable of even basic human understanding or perhaps are intellectually challenged (it would be good to know if you have been diagnosed as I would hate to be thought of challenging the mentally sub-normal) when it comes to consensus of opinion or your so called ‘democracy’. It is you invading our democratic rights when asked so often to fuck off perhaps you would be so kind as to do us all a favour and take the hint

    10/ if its democracy you crave and us defending your right to the death to say what you will, even if it is as useless as television listings, BTW citing teevee programmes is NOT the same as posting bootlegs, one is utterly pointless the other is totally fab - then why not man up and ask the collective assembled folk and get us to vote on it?

    Go on, I dares yah!

    P.S oh and BTW everything you post IS really really funny! Just a bit tired and sad now . . .

    By swappers on Jun 2, 2014

    Swappers is so right.

    By just joking on Jun 2, 2014

  35. darth says…its not up to a democratic vote what goes on here. and in fact it should be because its a democracy that voted that we should have the right to say what we wish.

    so far far you are losing the vote mr.democracy.

    By monkeyass on Jun 2, 2014

  36. its amazing that u claim i want attention and u put a comment taking up a screen and a half. thats mind numbing.
    where the site is based out of doesnt matter. u arent and most of the people who frequent the site arent in singapore. so that point is moot.
    the way bigo runs the site is that they dont edit out peoples comments / postings. they allow freedom of expression here. even u are allowed to voice yourself in this forum no matter how offensive ridiculous arrogant or obnoxious u are. if u have the right to post your thoughts then why shouldnt anyone and everyone else? dont u see the irony here? that u think its ok for u to say what u want but someone u dont think should have that same right.. should? what gives u that right? why are your comments ok but mine arent? its not your site. my lines about the tv performances dont take up nearly as much room as yours do complaining about them. dont u see how preposterous it is that u are bitching about this?
    youre irritating me by complaining but i am not begging anyone to stop u. i would figure u should be adult enough to control yourself by growing up and realizing that youre acting like an idiot here.
    ive explained that theres no attention seeking on my part since it has nothing to do with me or my name when i post the info. it isnt obsolete either since the postings usually say whats on a day or more ahead of time. but if u arent in the usa this wouldnt matter to u anyway.
    no one is winding me up at all btw. u can view it any way u wish. on the contrary.. im having a ball. just because im responding doesnt mean anyone is upsetting me. consider that i am getting u to respond. am i winding u up? look how much energy and effort u put into that last posting u made. if anyone was winding anyone up.. surely its me doing it to u. ha!

    again the location of the person who runs this site isnt important. the fact that he is in singapore isnt an important detail here. no its not democratically run in that it isnt up to a majority vote on what goes on here. however it is run in a way that is fair and balanced in that we have the freedom of expression. its not run like a fascist dictatorship. we dont have hitler running this with a mighty fist. he is giving u the freedom to say what u want without retribution as well as myself. there are of course limits to this freedom as there should be. what u are unhappy or annoyed with isnt important. u dont have to read what i post. u can avoid the comments section or avoid the entire fucking site altogther for that matter. cut off your nose to spite your face. it wont really bother anyone if u do. but trying to rally others for a wrong cause isnt right or just. u should realize this and understand it.
    i have no intention of going anywhere. u nor anyone else has the right to tell me to. when i ask ppl to use their regular names and not use my name to post thats a totally different matter. even the moderator of the site agrees with me on that. its wrong to use someone elses name to post comments. if u have something to say.. use your own id.

    i spelled all the words i used correctly so i dont need to ask a grown up. im also at least your age so i am grown up. try growing up yourself. i know the meanings of all the words i used and i used them correctly. if i had to guess it is u who dont seem to understand what a democracy is.

    your 7th paragraph didnt make any sense so i dont know how to respond to any of it.
    the 8th one is just semantics. just worthless drivel. not worth my time.

    u claiming youre not harassing me doesnt mean youre not. u absolutely definitely are.
    all my responses to u are and have been directly to u. if u talk about me to someone else or directly to me.. and it is of an offensive nature intended to provoke annoy instigate etc.. thats harassment. evidently u dont understand what youre doing.

    the tv listings of live performances by musicians that for the most part can be found on this site. theyre not useless. u may not have any use in the announcements but u arent the one i am posting the info for. imagine that!! i am not interested in a vote for what i do. i have found at least 2 or more ppl who have appreciated it. if u dont.. dont read them. it isnt for u. just like not every downloadable item offered here is something u might want. u would pass it over. right? so skip over my comments.
    owning the music by downloading it is one thing. the appreciation of the music is another. if this site offered u only the ability to come and listen to the music but u couldnt download it.. would u not come here? are u only interested in owning the music? isnt it about the enjoyment of the music? considering this.. if u dont get to own the music that is performed on tv that i bring to your attention but u get to hear it live.. if u were to tune in.. isnt that wonderful? when u go to concerts u dont own the music. u hear it live and get to enjoy it as it happens. is your pleasure in owning the music or hearing it? u can hear the live music on tv and know about it thanks to me and my information. not only that.. but if u put the energy in.. u could go to youtube after the fact and other sites if the songs arent there and download the performances. u wouldnt know who performed where or on what shows tho had someone like me in this case not told ya about it. and what better sound could u get than a tv brdcst?

    i dont mind u finding amusement at my postings. the appreciation is mutual. well kinda. i wouldnt miss u if u disappeared.

    By darth on Jun 2, 2014

  37. monkey - democracy means much more than majority voting. u should let swap who doesnt have a hell of a lot more brains than u do.. do your talking for u. hes just more articulate. he doesnt say anything worth reading but he says it oh so well. lol.

    By darth on Jun 2, 2014

  38. good lord - dont you people ever get tired?
    Im guessing that 40% of the comments here are kicking darth and 40% are him kicking back 10 % are his comments that have nothing to do with the music that is posted, leaving about 10% of the comments having to do with the actual music - which is what brings us all here in the first place.

    Could everyone please just let it go? Even for a day or two or even a week?


    By dwight on Jun 2, 2014

  39. its amazing that u claim i want attention and u put a comment taking up a screen and a half. thats mind numbing.

    no, your incessant rambling here is what mind numbing. get a life darth grow up. 7 paragraphs of pouting.tsk tsk u haven`t convinced anyone of anything other than your need for attention.

    By monkeyass on Jun 2, 2014

  40. :o) Couldn’t even be bothered to read today’s mind numbing riposte! so meanwhile here’s some poetry fer yew

    Poetry Corner (a lyric) by John Cooper-Clarke

    Like a Night Club in the morning, you’re the bitter end
    Like a recently disinfected shit-house, you’re clean round the bend.
    You give me the horrors
    too bad to be true
    All of my tomorrow’s
    are lousy coz of you.

    You put the Shat in Shatter
    Put the Pain in Spain
    Your germs are splattered about
    Your face is just a stain

    You’re certainly no raver, commonly known as a drag.
    Do us all a favour, here… wear this polythene bag.

    You’re like a dose of scabies,
    I’ve got you under my skin.
    You make life a fairy tale… Grimm!
    People mention murder, the moment you arrive.
    I’d consider killing you if I thought you were alive.
    You’ve got this slippery quality,
    it makes me think of phlegm,
    and a dual personality
    I hate both of them.

    Your bad breath, vamps disease, destruction, and decay.
    Please, please, please, please, take yourself away.
    Like a death in a birthday party,
    you ruin all the fun.
    Like a sucked and spat our Smartie,
    you’re no use to anyone.
    like the shadow of the guillotine
    on a dead consumptive’s face.
    Speaking as an outsider,
    what do you think of the human race

    You went to a progressive psychiatrist.
    He recommended suicide…
    before scratching your bad name off his list,
    and pointing the way outside.

    You hear laughter breaking through, it makes you want to fart.
    You’re heading for a breakdown,
    better pull yourself apart.
    Your dirty name gets passed about when something goes amiss.
    Your attitudes are platitudes,
    just make me wanna piss.

    What kind of creature bore you
    Was is some kind of bat
    They can’t find a good word for you,
    but I can…

    (tee hee . . . )

    By swappers on Jun 2, 2014

  41. I can’t believe how you fools can get in such a stupid argument about who gets to put what in a comment. Give me a break, and GET A LIFE. I agree with dwight. Doesn’t anybody in this great website actually care about the music that’s put on here? I do.

  42. This is getting ridiculous!

    By Dangermouse on Jun 3, 2014

  43. i thought it was ridiculous when someone thinks its his right to say who should have the freedom to post what they wish.

    By darth on Jun 3, 2014

  44. This is getting ridiculous. When I started my comments what seems oh so long ago now, I was talking about the wonderful Emmylou Harris, Daniel Lanois set but fascists hijack the conversation to make it about them.
    Freedom of speech people!
    . . and remember hypocrisy is spelled that way for a reason . .
    There’s irony for you . . .

  46. Swappers… It all just seems so unnecessary. I’ve no idea what the TV listings are pointing out (Ferguson? Conan? I’m assuming they are American and I’m not) but why not just skip over that post like I do? The guy is entitled to write them (free speech…), even though I really can’t see the point of them myself.

  47. danger - the point of them as i have mentioned repeatedly.. is that the musicians that we enjoy often perform on talk shows here. just like they do in other countries. there are a lot of them in the usa. they do this mostly when promoting a new product or a tour. the postings i make when these people are doing live performances are for ppl to tune in and if they miss them they can at least know that these performances took place. i for one usually if i care about the artist or band.. will go to either youtube or if the item isnt there i will find it on another site and either download or record the performance. it helps fill in cds if other recordings i have are shorter than the length of a cd or if i just want more rare live music by said performer. if enough of these performances happen they can make their own cd. sometimes these late nite shows here have full length performances like peter gabriel or the black keys did on letterman or when paul mccartney did his set. others have done this too. its not just late nite shows that have these live performances.. we have morning shows too. some are mid afternoon shows. theres lots of em. then theres weekend shows that are known for featuring live performances in their entirety like austin city limits and live at the artists den. these are very collectible and usually feature fabulous sounding shows and excellent performances. one particular case was the one with robert plant i mentioned recently from 2011 that was replaying a lot. true not all of the readers here are in the usa but many are. ppl who dont have access to these tv shows can still find these performances online to dl or watch etc. i collect recordings i find from foreign tv shows. theres no reason why this cant work in reverse. i dont normally collect too much in video but i will convert a video to audio and save that.
    i hope this explains this clearly enough for u. thanks.

  48. Just BRILLIANT! Totally hilarious!

    Thanks Dangermouse . . . . I will try I promise!

  49. Thanks to both of you for your replies. I do actually prefer my music live as opposed to on TV - but whoever the hell Conan is I’d tune in to watch Bob Mould - as long as someone informed me beforehand he was on obviously… :-)

  50. whats a conan ?
    i thought he was a barbarian, didn`t know he had a television show.
    seems there are some of us here who aren`t from wherever darth is from even though he claims the majority here are from his territory.

  51. Yeah, where are ya from, darth? America?

  52. well he was on the show on the 4th and i did announce it ahead of time. he did the song ‘i dont know you anymore’. i recorded it off of the conan site since i didnt find it on youtube. it will likely show up on youtube in a day or so.
    the music u dl from here isnt live either. its recorded. just like it is on tv. when u come here to obtain music it is captured from a source such as fm or tv or the soundboard or less preferably the audience via a microphone etc. a tv brdcst is often a good source since the sound will usually be pretty decent. if the people who post the live performance online did a direct feed rather than aiming a camera or phone at their tv then the sound will be pretty good. im not sure how to explain this better to u. unless u are just playing goofy.

    conan obrien is a writer who got his own show and at one point replaced jay leno then got his own show again. its now on a cable station called tbs in the usa. hes based in los angeles calif. nearly every nite but not every single nite he has a musician performing near the end of the show. not unlikely most of the other talk shows. letterman leno arsenio ellen degeneres etc.

    i didnt say that everyone is from the usa. but i did say that more than 50% of the people who access this site are. that isnt important however. if 1000 people came here and 50 people were in the usa and of those 20 were into live performances from tv appearances that would be fine. i would still announce them. i dont have to cater to 100% of everyone. no one can or should try to. he who chisels himself to suit others will soon whittle himself away.

    tonite is chrissie hynde on colbert report on the comedy channel thats thurs the 5th. it will repeat. friday the 6th has keb mo on ferguson. sat on bbc america has coldplay on the graham norton show. sting will perform during the tonys on cbs on sunday. on monday willie nelson will be on letterman. next wed the 11th aretha will be on kelly & michael.

  55. Nice to hear Emmylou’s take on Hendrix’s May this be love . Thanks BIGO!~

    By TUNAFAN on Jun 12, 2014

  56. Nice to see this show up. Kinda stumbled my way here and look at that cover art - the picture of Emmylou is actually one that I took when she played in Glasgow a few years ago, and the editing work I did on it was for a photography group on FB so you can imagine my surprise at seeing it used as a front cover to a live show!

    I’m not overly mad about it but I do wish people would ask before they do such things!
