Meet Donnie and Joe Emerson, two brothers from a farm in Fruitland, Washington 70 miles outside of Spokane. Their town consisted of two stores, their school had all of about 100 kids, and they barely knew music until they got a tractor with a radio. But from that day on, they essentially lived and breathed music, and their parents were supportive enough to spend around $150,000 on that dream. The result was a pretty beautiful album that was heard by few if any.
But thanks to Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti cover of their song “Baby,” Dreamin’ Wild has been resurrected!
Pretty great story, don’t you think?!
