Emmylou Harris: Sincerity in Sin City

Mick Brown, Street Life, 20 March 1976

OF COURSE, Emmylou Harris has to be staying in an elite hotel. Large, rambling, fin-de-siecle. The author J. P. Donleavy stays here when he's in town, and your footsteps are muffled by the discreet air of wealth as you pad the corridors, to ride the elevator to the sixth floor with a man in an alpaca coat and a woman swathed in furs.
