My first set of songs on The Mulberry Tree this coming Sunday will represent strong female vocals. Later on in the playlist, I'll be featuring several tracks written by the late Bob Dyer. Bob was a performing songwriter from the Boonville-Columbia Missouri area. Two separate listeners suggested I feature Bob's music on the tree, and I certainly appreciate it. Monday, April 11 marks 15 years since Bob's passing, so I saw it fitting time to share a few of his songs with you. This week's sneak peek playlist video is James Taylor and J.D. Souther with "Her Town Too," which features some of the most magical harmony vocals. Their voices blend effortlessly and beautifully. Here's my full list of artists to be heard this Sunday:
Trio (Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt)
