Emmylou Harris And Spyboy: Carling Apollo, London
Gavin Martin, Uncut, February 2004
EMMYLOU'S WEARING A BODY-HUGGING black dress, high heels and radiating style, class and smouldering sensuality. The opening 'Here I Am' sets the scene aptly enough, a stirring statement of intent, identity and purpose. She steers into the song's measured flow, moving through its steady current and singing of a mystical river and a promise never broken, The steadfast vow is not made lightly, Emmylou's 35-year career has usurped the rulebook.
