The Master. JB could have retired to working on his cars after this classic and his legend would still be sealed. Epitome of taste, feel, melody and restraint.

One of the great L.A. bands of the 60's. Too much talent in this group to have continued, but, OH-EM-GEE...they fukkin RULED. Their influence carried into the 90's (Matthew Sweet, Jeff Tweedy and all of the, "Alt-Country" bands).

Are you mixing up Emmylou and Linda Ronstadt? Henley, Frey, Meisner, and Leadon (who formed The Eagles) were in Ronstadt's backup band for her first tour. Read the Wiki entry for Emmylou and you won't find any mention of any of the Eagles.

I figured I was missing something, but I had to ask. I was in an Eagles/Jackson Brown/Ronstadt cover band in SoCal in the mid-'70s.

I'm sorry to hear that. Well, admitting something like that is a brave, first step to recovery. Good for you!

If you wanted to fill the bars in SoCal in the '70s, the quickest path was covering Eagles/Ronstadt/Jackson Browne. It's the world we lived in and the path we chose 43 years ago.

I had fun. I"ll never repent.

Well, thanks to you pointing that out, I dug out Emmylou Harris's Roses in the Snow. Gonna spin that later today. And you're right about the backup crew; it's stunning: Ricky Skaggs, Tony Rice, The Whites on backup vocals (nothing compares to relatives for unified harmony), Albert Lee, Brian Ahern, Jerry Douglas on Dobro (the best I have ever heard), John Ware, Willie Nelson on gut-string guitar, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Johnny Cash on various vocal harmonies. Here is one of my favorite cuts from this album, with vocal harmonies by The Whites:

Wow! I just checked my LP collection and I have that Joe Pass album! I never got around to playing it. Right now I'm listening to the Getz/Gilberto "Girl From Ipanema" album, but Joe Pass is next!

Also, I think The Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour" is better than many of us realize. It's captivating from start to finish and wi'll be up in the rotation soon.
