There were numerous obscure attempts, most of them commercially and artistically unsuccessful, by folk revival veterans to move into folk-rock-pop in the last half of the 1960s. For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her is Yarbrough's. Although Yarbrough's usual idea of a contemporary singer/songwriter to cover on record was limited to Rod McKuen, here he tackles many of the giants: Simon & Garfunkel (the title cut), Buffy Sainte-Marie ("Until It's Time for You to Go"), Ian & Sylvia ("The French Girl"), Bob Dylan ("Tomorrow Is a Long Time"), Phil Ochs ("Pleasures of the Harbor" and "Crucifixion"), and, most unexpectedly, Buffalo Springfield (with what must have been one of the very few covers of Stephen Stills' "Everybody's Wrong").
