Long before Gram and Emmylou...
...there was Porter and Dolly. There's an incredible wealth of clips out there from "The Porter Wagoner Show", which ran (incredibly) from 1960 - 1981. Wagoner was the living embodiment of the Nudie/Manuel suit, and his voice never sounded better than the years (1967-1974) when he was paired with Dolly Parton. These also happen to be, for our purposes, the prime Percy and Eunice years, so expect to see plenty more from this truly golden era.
