Editorial Reviews

For the first time on CD, Raven offers two classic Country Rock/Bluegrass albums by the legendary Flying Burrito Brothers. The Flying Burrito Bros. Album (1971) is acknowledged as a prime example of Country Rock and most significantly The Great Lost Burritos Live album, Last of the Red Hot Burritos (1972). These albums are the last two that ex-Byrd and Burritos co-founder Chris Hillman produced with the band. This top value CD includes two rare bonus tracks, ' Here Tonight' with Ex-Byrd Gene Clark plus the original 45 rpm version of 'Tried So Hard'. Features color booklet, informative liner notes and superb quality audio.

A must for any Flying Burrito Bros fan.
Great War Eagle
The Flying Burrito Brothers album is a very solid and enjoyable country-rock album with solid singing and songwriting, and superb musicianship.
Statman
The remaining two songs are covers and very excellent ones at that.

This is a very welcome release of the Flying Burrito Brothers 3rd and 4th albums on one CD. There must have been previous CD releases of these two albums as they are individually for sale second hand on Amazon but at a price of approximately $100! The eponymous Flying Burrito Brothers record was released in 1971, a follow up to Burrito Deluxe and before that The Gilded Palace of Sin. Gram Parsons had left the band and was something of a Rolling Stones groupie at their Exile on Mainstreet sessions in France.
His replacement was Rick Roberts who went on to have commercial success with his own band Firefall. So the Band is Chris Hillman, Rick Robertd, Bernie Leadon, Pet Kleinow and Michael Clarke. The direction here is more a matter of creating main-stream pop songs with country instrumentation whereas the band's two previous albums were more focused on taking country songs and putting them in a rock beat format. The record then sets a template for the bands that followed (Eagles, Poco, Pure Prairie League etc) and of course Bernie Leadon is a member of the Burritos here and soon to become an Eagle. The first song however is actually a country song (White Line Fever) written by Merle Haggard and given the rock treatment. Rick Roberts contributes most of the writing on the following 9 songs, 2 on his own and 4 co writes with Hillman. All these songs are fine country rock songs with good hooks and believable themes and on Colorado Rick sounds very much like a younger Gram Parsons. The remaining two songs are covers and very excellent ones at that. Gene Clark's Tried so Hard is excellent and it was great that this song got another airing outside of Clark's version on his first solo LP. Bob Dylan's Ramona is the other cover and for me the album's highlight.

Nice package of the final two Burrito albums.The 3rd is probably the weakeast of the three studio lps, but there are some good moments; "Can't you Hear me Callin'" and "Tried So Hard" most notable.Rick Roberts replaced Gram Parsons for this record, and some of his stuff is a little too commercial for what the Burritos had been doing.Not enough of Sneeky Pete and Bernie Leadon on this album either. The "Last of the Red Hots" cd smokes, with newcomer Al Perkins on steel and guitar burning it up, along with Chris Hillman and Michael Clarke.Good material, although the loss of Bernie Leadon is felt here as well. The bluegrass set is okay; could have done without the overplayed "Orange Blossom Special'.Two bonus tracks, both Gene Clark songs are included: the 45 version of "Tried So Hard", and Gene's "Here Tonight", with him on lead vocals;two of the best things from the third lp sessions.The only complaint would be not including more bonus material, some which has shown up on other issues. A good package for those who don't have the cds already.Nice liner notes.

The album "Flying Burrito Brother's" is one of the classics of the original alternative country scene in the 70's. The band at this time consisted of Chris Hillman on vocals/bass; Rick Roberts (Firefall) on vocals/guitar; Bernie Leadon (Eagles) vocals/guitar/banjo; Sneaky Pete Kleinow on pedal steel; and Michael Clarke on drums.

Gram Parsons had already been kicked out of the band by this time, and the group wasn't doing well in the charts. But this album really needs to be heard by folks who hail from the country-rock era. It includes the Merle Haggard classic "White Line Fever" and Dave Dudley's "Six Day's on the Road."

But with Gram gone, the Bakersfield influence was waning. This album really gave Rick Roberts a chance to stretch his musical wings. His song "Colorado", though a bit sentimental really show cased his tenor voice. The mournful "Just Can't Be" gives a glimpse into what would become the Firefall sound. "Hand to Mouth" and "Why Are You Crying" set a tone typical of acoustic guitar country-rock that was oft imitated.

But the best song on the album "Flying Burrito Brothers" is by far "Four Days of Rain." This tune was later covered by the New Grass Revival on their album "When the Storm is Over." While Sam Bush and the boys did a remarkable job of that tune, there is nothing like hearing the original. This song is also on the more sentimental side, but it captures the feeling of the Colorado mountain town, long-haired country music scene like none other ever written.

The Burrito's will always be Gram's band, but Chris and Rick did an outstanding job on this album. It's a "must own" for 70's country rock fans.

This release includes the FBBs third and fourth albums, and last, with Chris Hillman. They were also the first two without Gram Parsons, the bands founder and chief creative force, who had been fired by Hillman for undependability.

The Flying Burrito Brothers album features founding members Hillman and Sneaky Pete Kleinow, along with Bernie Leadon and Michael Clarke who joined for their second album, and Rick Roberts who was hired to replace Parsons. Parsons, Hillman, and Clarke were all former Byrds, while Leadon (formerly of Dillard & Clark) would leave the group to co-found the Eagles and Roberts would found Firefall. Although Kleinow has played pedal steel as a session performer for many recordings (including the Byrds, the Rolling Stones, and the Eagles), Kleinow's chief claim to fame was as a stop-action animator, originally for Gumby, but more importantly for movies like the Empire Strikes Back and the Terminator. The Flying Burrito Brothers album is a very solid and enjoyable country-rock album with solid singing and songwriting, and superb musicianship. Similar in sound and quality to any of the Eagles first four albums, as well as to any albums by Hillman's highly successful Desert Rose Band in the late 80s. "Tried So Hard" should have been a major hit. Maybe four stars on its own.

Last of the Red Hot Burritos was intended to be the band's last album. By the time it was recorded, Leadon had left to join the Eagles and Kleinow had decided that movie and session work paid better. Kleinow was replaced by Al Perkins, while Leadon was replaced with guitarist/banjoist Kenny Wertz.
