32) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Emmylou Harris and the Nash Ramblers-'At the Ryman'
Recently I enjoyed watching Ken Burns' new series on country music. Afterwards I went rummaging through my music collection, and I was almost ashamed to find out that I only had one recording by Emmylou Harris, but it is a great one. (I've since bought two more on vinyl.) Years ago, a long time friend from high school in Morris Franklin burned me a copy of this recording and introduced me to it. A few years after that, I found an actual CD copy of the release. I only recently discovered it in my collection, and knew that I would soon play it as a MMR. Since we started off the show with a Ryman Auditorium recording of Old Crow and Margo Price picked out by Orly, I thought it would be fitting to bookend the show with Emmylou's classic Ryman performance. It was this album recorded in the early 90's that brought attention back to the Ryman Auditorium. It had been dormant for almost two decades, and in serious need of repair. When Emmylou wanted to record a live album there, it was apparently falling apart around them. It was thought that the balcony was too unsafe for use and could collapse, so it was closed off completely for the performance. After this album was released and subsequently won a grammy, a group of country musicians and the city of Nashville found some investments and decided to restore the Ryman for general use. It reopened a few years later completely revamped, and has since hosted many acts of varied genres. Orlando has been at least two or three times, seeing Mumford and Sons, and I do believe Vampire Weekend play there. I am happy to say that I have also been there, and find it ironic that the only act I've seen at the former house of the Grand Ol' Opry is the pioneering German electronic band Kraftwerk. An incredible place to see a concert. even if the pew seating begins to hurt the back after a while. A great testament to the building itself, and a great testament to the greatness of Emmylou Harris. "Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again".
