Album of the day: Flying Burrito Brothers - The Gilded Palace of Sin

Alex Edkins recommended this to me (of Metz), so I thought it might be good. I didn't realize it would change / blow my mind.

The Flying Burrito Brothers was an early country rock band, best known for its influential debut album, 1969's The Gilded Palace of Sin. Although the group is most often mentioned in connection with country rock legends Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, the group underwent many personnel changes.

Here they are again (embedding disabled) with Emmylou Harris (apparently the first concert ever recorded ;)

Download album here.

  1. Gram Parsons is one of my all-time favourite performers, and his life story is quite the saga. I'm going to make you a mixed tape!
