Saturday Emmylou Blogging

From my collection of recordings that I made off the air on VHS cassettes, this was Emmylou's first appearance as a headliner on an ACL program. It was aired as the first set of the first program of Season 7. (The second set featured Rodney Crowell.) My notes made at the time indicate that I recorded this in July 1983, which must have been from a rerun of the original program. An edited version of Emmylou's set was posted (along with water marks of CMT and Austin City Limits) on March of 2020 on another channel. Some of the chatter between songs, the ACL introduction and closing credits were excised; and, the play order was revised, perhaps to accommodate commercials on Country Music Television. This posting is unedited (except for the removal of Rodney Crowell's name from the "billboard"). Also, I believe the picture quality and color are better. I hope y'all enjoy it.

Thanks to pianopappy.
