Emmy Lou Harris - 1977

When I was in my young teens, my best friends father packed us in the VW and hauled us down to a local amusement park called Knott's Berry Farm to see some chick named Emmy Lou Harris.

I was a big fan of Bob Dylan's Desire album, so I was aware of who Emmy Lou was, but I was unprepared for the brilliance of her performance, and, in such a mundane setting it was all the more stunning.
