If you know the drill already feel free to dig right into this week’s questions. If Rock Town Hall’s Dugout Chatter is new to you, the rules are simple: read the following questions – one at a time – and answer the following questions – one at a time – candidly and from your gut! There are no right or wrong answers, but follow-up questions and comments are encouraged. Let’s get a little chatter going!

Sandy Denny or Emmylou Harris?
What do you most hope to get out of reading a record review?
