Emmylou Harris Pays Tribute to Joan Baez

Rolling Stone reports: "One listen to Emmylou Harris' obscure 1969 solo debut album, Gliding Bird, and you'll hear the obvious influence of folk singer Joan Baez on the future Country Music Hall of Fame member.

Billboard reports: "Though Wilco releases two major retrospectives this week to celebrate the band's 20th anniversary, Jeff Tweedy admits that he's not a guy who likes to celebrate the past. "The last thing in the world I wanted to do was to listen through all the old records and all the old outtakes. It's just not my nature to feel too comfortable doing that," Tweedy tells Billboard. Nevertheless, he says that "I thoroughly approve of everything" on the 38-track What's Your 20: Essential Tracks best-of collection and Alpha Mike Foxtrot, a four-CD set featuring rare and unreleased studio and live tracks."
