Customer Reviews

If you like music, or know someone who does, you need it.
Travis A. Holland
The Flying Burrito Brothers had a short flight but it was one the the best flights ever.
Carlos Aranguren
It's easy to peg the Burritos as Gram Parsons with other musicians.
Sean M. Kelly

What made the early work of the Flying Burrito Brothers stand out above any other country-rock fusions of the time was Gram Parson's brilliant stew of straight country, rock and roll, and R&B. _Hot Burritos!_ does an incredible job of presenting this classic music with shimmering remastered sound.
Tracks 1-11 on disc one comprise the complete _Guilded Palace of Sin_ album. These 11 tracks alone are worth the price of this 2-CD set. Standouts include "Christine's Tune", "Hot Burrito #1", "Hot Burrito #2", and the coutrified protest song "My Uncle".
Next is the first domestic CD release of the rollicking single "The Train Song." Good, but it's an indication of the disarray the group was beginning to succomb to.
Tracks 13-23 present _Burrito Deluxe_ in its entirety. It has a much looser sound than _Guilded Palace_ and few memorable songs. "Cody Cody" easily lives up to the high standard set by the first album and their version of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses" is simply gorgeous.
Disc two is where the problems start. The first 7 tracks are from an aborted covers album and represent Parsons' last recordings with the Burritos. Pleasant, but they sound tossed off.
Tracks 8-17 (_The Flying Burrito Brothers_) were recorded after the ousting of Parsons and the hiring of new singer Rick Roberts. Here we see the group leaning heavily towards a more pop AOR sound (such as that produced by the Eagles a year later). These tracks are okay, but definitely not up to the standard of _Guilded Palace_ and _Burrito Deluxe_.

How do you know if a band is just a good band or a legendary one? By the amount of times they re-package the same material over and over again. The Burritos are legendary. I'm not complaining. I love it! I have every song on this two CD set but I bought it anyway for the liner notes. The Parsons-era Burritos recorded only two albums but the following are a list of some of the compilations: 1. Farther Along: The Best of the Flying Burrito Brothers. This is the official A&M greatest hits package. (contains different version of Sing Me Back Home and a truncated version of Dylan's I Shall Be Released)
2. Dim Lights, Thick Smoke and Loud, Loud Music An import from the great Edsel Records out of England (contains the version of Sing Me Back Home which is on this package, but also includes, Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down, Crazy Arms, Green Green Grass of Home and several others)
3. Sleepness Nights - this is a hybrid of FBB outtakes and Gram Parsons solo outtakes which are worth the price of admission alone. The FBB selections are all covered elsewhere.
4. Hot Burrito - Yes there was already a release by A&M called Hot Burrito which was a single CD which contains all the aforementioned songs in another configuration. Hard to find.
5. Close Up The Honky Tonks - originally a Dutch release on A&M but I have never found on CD. But yes you guessed it, all the songs can be found elsewhere.
6. Out of The Blue - more of the same
The repackaged Burritos, including this CD, more than triples the output of the FBB w/Gram Parsons. WHY? I'll tell ya why since you been good enough to read this far my friend, COSMIC AMERICAN MUSIC. If your an old fan, then sit back and enjoy what you already have enjoyed before.

Amazingly, The Burritos debut masterpiece- Gilded Palace of Sin, is not available on CD, nor is the equally fine followup-Burrito Deluxe. This 2 CD set corrects that. Disc 1 includes both of these albums in their entirety. Disc 2 is more scattershot. Cover versions and the departure of Gram Parsons from track 8 forward make this part of the anthology less essential listening. A&M has kept their single disc anthology - Farther Along in print but it's missing 2 songs from "Gilded". For a few bucks more you get better liner notes, better sound and one of the greatest Country-Rock albums ever in Gilded Palace of Sin, in full.

The Flying Burrito Brothers are perhaps the best band to epitomize what is now called "country-rock." They directly rode the heels of the Byrds classic country album, "Sweetheart of the Rodeo." For the newcomer, both the amount of material on this 2-disc set, and the sound might be a bit too much. When I first heard the Burrito's material 5 years ago that CD sat virtually unheard (perhaps because I was not used to the pedal steel sound, which band member Sneaky Pete Kleinow excellently plays). I guess I was just not ready for their pioneering sound. However, I would advise anyone who wants to sample some of the most influential and critically acclaimed material of the 60s and early 70s to buy this set. The first CD is certainly the strongest, and it consists entirely of songs on which Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman performed. Gram and Chris, as many already know, were members of the Byrds and credited with co-founding "country-rock." The material from FBB's first album, "Gilded Palace of Sin" stands out, and fortunately the entire album is here. The material from their second album "Burrito Deluxe" is weaker, but still stellar. For this latter album FBB added ex-Byrd Michael Clarke and future Eagle Bernie Leadon. Highlights of the first CD are the protest song, "My Uncle," the soulful, "Dark End of the Street," and the cover of the Rolling Stones hit, "Wild Horses." But again, every song is excellent and groundbreaking (Clarence White, guitarist extraordinaire and Byrds member, guests on "The Train Song."). The second CD is often panned, but in reality it is filled with some very good material, especially the first seven tracks where Gram and the boys belt out inspired versions of country standards (such as "Break My Mind").Read more ›
