Update: U.S. Federal Appeals court, 5/31/84, Judge A. Wallace Tashima, awarded Emmylou Harris a judgement against the reissue on Emus (Roulette Records), $34,000 in attorney fees and $60,000 for copyright infringement.
This is indeed the very first Emmylou Harris album, recorded in 1969 when she was hanging out in the bustling Washington, DC folk scene. It's a few years before she hooked up with Gram Parsons, and has more of a coffeehouse folkie feel than her later country-trad classics... Many fans might find this underwhelming - the style is different and Emmylou lacks her later confidence and creative vision, but it is an interesting artifact of her early days, and is particularly noteworthy for the number of songs she wrote herself. Features five songs(!) written by Emmylou, including the title track, which was written by her then-husband, Tom Slocum, and a few cover tunes, including Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talkin' At Me," Bob Dylan's "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" and an okay version of Hank Williams' "I Saw The Light." Worth checking out, though don't get your hopes up too high: word has it Emmylou more or less disavows this album, though it's still neat to hear what she was up to a few years before she really stepped into the spotlight.

Cheap budget reissue of 1969 album" 'Gliding Bird." Does not contain as many tracks as the Jubilee original. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Robert Westfall
I got this record a number of years ago (it was actually a tape version). Being a fan of Emmylou's I just had to have this. Read morePublished 15 months ago by James E. Allison
