Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt - "The Sweetest Gift"/"Bury Me Beneath the Willow" (live, 1976)
Damn. Apparently from The Dolly Show, 1976 - a full 11 years before Trio was released. It's worth noting that while Emmylou was just starting out, commercially, and Dolly's hits had momentarily shrunk a bit (to be quickly rectified with 1977's Here You Come Again), Linda was hot as blazes in '76, working a #1 country/#3 pop album, Hasten Down the Wind. That makes seeing her in this context all the more surprising.
