What could be a better Christmas present than a podcast recorded over Easter? That’s when Doug Pettibone, “The Man with the Golden Tone” who has traded licks with everyone from John Mayer to Lucinda Williams, joined host Jeremy Dylan to talk about Emmylou Harris’s seminal 1995 album “Wrecking Ball’.
Along the way, they chat about Daniel Lanois’ non-traditional guitar heroics, speculate about the one genre that Emmylou isn’t suited for, delve into the eclectic song choices that make up the album and examine how Emmylou used the record to reinvent her whole career.
Note: This episode was recorded in a rather echoey hotel room. Attempts have been made to clean up the sound.
