Emmylou Harris / Spyboy

Waxed in support of her watershed Wrecking Ball (1995) slab, this mind-blowing live set features exemplary performances from all the players – Emmylou, guitarist Buddy Miller, drummer Brady Blade, and bassist Daryl Johnson.

Melding ambient, country, blues, rock, and jazz – Spyboy (named for her band) – breaks whatever barriers were left in alternative country. Johnson's adroit use of the extended range low B shows just how powerful the instrument can be in the right hands!
