Today I interviewed Mary Chapin Carpenter for an Acoustic Guitar magazine story that'll be out in a few months. The main topic was her very fine forthcoming album, The Things That We Are Made Of (to be released May 6). But the conversation started with my mentioning that I met her briefly after an extraordinary show at Slim's in San Francisco in 1992 when the power went out and she and her bandmates performed on top of the bar. She recalls that show vividly and also said that someone had given her a copy of the little article I wrote in Acoustic Guitar about that night. Which got me digging into my archives to find the clip below. Click the image for a larger (and more legible) view. AG 1993 MCC unplugged
