We Hit Our Midweek Stride With ‘Music From Laurel Canyon’ and Emmylou Harris & Spyboy ‘Live’ Later, Wednesday, January 26, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists. We’ve got a pretty damned good line-up scheduled for today starting with those sweet Laurel Canyon sounds.

We’ve got that sweet Laurel Canyon sound today!

Here’s today’s musical landscape:

11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists

Laurel Canyon was musical paradise for two generations of innovators, and was a hotbed for the fusion that brought us country-rock, and inspired this great EP to get you through the midweek. The musicians who lived and played there, fed off each other creatively. Rumor has it that everyone loved partying with The Monkees. You’ll hear The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Mamas & The Papas, The Doors, The Monkees, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, CSNY, Neil Young, Manassas, John Mayall, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Canned Heat, J.D. Souther, Carole King, James Taylor, America, and more!

7:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris & Spyboy Live at Kongresshaus, Zurich, Switzerland, January 20, 1977

We go on the road with Emmylou Harris & Spyboy for the Wrecking Ball tour, what many consider Harris’ career-redefining album produced by Daniel Lanois. She took a minimalist approach with her band, bringing it back to basics. Spyboy consisted of country singer-songwriter Buddy Miller on guitar, and two New Orleans musicians, Daryl Johnson on bass and Brady Blade on drums. As it turns out, Wrecking Ball is one of my all-time favorite Emmylou Harris albums.
