4.0 out of 5 stars Hot Burritos 1 & 2 June 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I will not add much to the other assessments of the great (Gram Parsons-era) Flying Burrito Brothers albums collected on this single cd import - it is their first two albums, the classic "Gilded Palace Of Sin" (1969) and the very good followup "Burrito Deluxe" (1970). "Gilded" remains an astonishing melange of styles, more original in its conception than the Parsons/Chris Hillman-era Byrds album "Sweetheart Of The Rodeo" (1968), and with more (9 out of 11) original songs. Most of the material remains breathtaking, an encapsulation of Parsons' fundamental vision - lover of country and soul music for its purity of expression, and sophisticated, worldly ironist. This is something he shared with his friends The Rolling Stones, who as arty Englishmen brought a similar love and distance to the blues and r & b that inspired them. Parsons could not sing "The Christian Life" with the same conviction as the Louvin Brothers, but neither could he simply mock its sentiments, and therein lies the source of his greatness. By 1970, Parsons had started hanging out with the Stones, and like many succumbed to the hard drugs and luxuriant decadence that somehow never - quite - swallowed the band itself, though they've come close many times through the decades. Unfortunately Parsons and Keith Richards didn't put much of their legendary informal collaborations down on tape (or, none that has surfaced), but clearly by this second album Parsons was distracted, and increasingly unreliable. Nevertheless "Burrito Deluxe" suffers only by comparison to its predecessor - it is a fine album, slight on new Parsons material and more rock oriented but with many fine moments, from "God's Own Singer" (I'll take it over the Eagles entire catalog) to "Cody Cody".

5.0 out of 5 stars Byrds breakaway group starts brilliantly August 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Byrds underwent many line-up changes but the line-up that recorded the classic Sweethearts of the rodeo album didn't last long even by Byrds' standards. Two of its key members, Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, quit and formed the Flying Burrito Brothers. This twofer contains their first two albums.
The first album, Gilded Palace of Sin, is regarded as a landmark album in the evolution of country-rock, almost as important as Sweethearts of the rodeo. Despite the label country rock, this album actually contains a few soulful ballads. On this album, the group comprised Gram Parsons, Chris Hillman, Sneeky Pete Kleinow and Chris Ethridge. Most of the songs are originals, though the album also includes brilliant covers of Dark end of the street and Do right woman.
Even if you haven't heard the Flying Burrito Brothers before, you may be familiar with some of the songs, particularly because Emmylou Harris (a staunch fan of Gram's music) has covered some of these songs � her versions of Wheels and Sin city can be found on her Elite Hotel album. The album begins with the rocking Christine's tune (sometimes titled Devil in disguise, but that confuses it with the Elvis song of that title). Other great tracks here include Juanita and the two Hot Burrito songs.
Burrito Deluxe does not match the exceptional standard of Gilded palace of sin, but it is a far better album than some people would have you believe, and its style is very different. The soulful ballads are gone (apart from Image of me), replaced by rock'n'roll � but that's fine by me. The album was difficult to record, partly because Gram became a bit wayward and partly because of further line-up changes. Chris Ethridge had left, replaced by Bernie Leadon (who went on to greater fame as a member of the Eagles) and Michael Clarke.

4.0 out of 5 stars Walking the line August 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This two-fer CD gives consumers the opportunity to purchase remastered versions of the first two releases by this seminal band from the late 1960's at a ridiculously affordable price. The two discs were released in 1968 ('Gilded Palace of Sin') and 1969 ('Burrito Deluxe'), and in their later incarnation, the artists involved composed 3/5 of what was once known as 'The Byrds' (guitarist, keyboardist, and vocalist Gram Parsons, drummer Michael Clarke, and bassist and vocalist Chris Hillman). This band is often credited with pioneering the Country-Rock genre, although those kudo's must certainly be shared with Roger McGuinn's Byrds and Buffalo Springfield, and myriad other bands who dabbled in the effort. The Flying Burrito Brothers, however, certainly embraced the new, unfolding sound unlike any predecessor. Unfortunately, since youth culture was still thoroughly immersed in the sounds of acid-rock and the emerging heavy-metal genre, devoting entire albums to country-rock spelled disaster for the FBB's. Their debut album sold only 50,000 copies.

Featuring two rhythm guitarists, a steel pedal guitar, and a bassist, along with four session drummers, 'Gilded Palace...' was inclined to sound like nothing previously known in rock parlance. The band walked the line between country and rock, more often emphasizing the country in tunes such as 'Do Right Woman', with it's tight harmonies and sweet steel guitar courtesy of Sneeky Pete Kleinow, and 'Do You Know How It Feels'. Most of the lyrics pursue traditional country music themes, such as love lost ('Hot Burrito #1) with it's Byrd-like chiming guitar sound, or religion, such as a trio of songs from 'Burrito Deluxe', 'Farther Along' ("we'll all understand it in the by and by"), 'God's Own Singer', and 'In the Churchyard'.

A beautiful time capsule; the 3/4 waltz time found in many of these songs seems to have nearly vanished, even in country music.
