Harper Barnes is a feature writer for the St. Louis 'Post Dispatch' and book columnist for Boston's 'Real Paper.'

It's interesting, and slightly baffling, to note that the same writer would write two different reviews of the same concert for different papers: http://www.elvisconcerts.com/newspapers/press95.htm


The article for the St. Louis Post Dispatch is not so much a review. Harper Barnes interviews fans and is more a reporting the event which is a different genre which in journalistic terms is not strange but accepted as common practice.
