All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Emmylou Harris, Santa Cruz, CA, 6-15-1979 (Pre-FM)

Here is a very fine recording of Emmylou Harris. This is an all acoustic show with Ricky Scaggs helping her out.  Someone requested I re-post this and it seemed like a good idea.

Acoustic show with Ricky Skaggs (guitar, mandolin , fiddle, vocals) & Brian Ahern (bass)

The first song and 2 minutes of the second song are from an "off-air" KFAT-FM recording, the rest is prebroadcast soundboard. Much better sound quality on the SBD but still listenable enough on the FM source.

  1. Hey AZ. With heavy snow on the way to my beautiful Oregon, I couldn't ask for a better companion than Emmylou (and my lovely bride, of course). Thanks for your keen observation and kind generosity. Best to you,


  2. Thanks so much. What a show.

  3. I reeeeeeaally want this but for some reason megaupload page is not loading! Please help!

  4. CHM. Good idea! Yes all the megaupload links are dead. The Mega site went down. I lost hundreds of links. Sometimes if I feel nice I re-post old stuff. It is your lucky day.
