Almost everyone I know who still has the vinyl version of this claims to be just about to wear through it, and for good reason.

This is THE seminal live alt country/bluegrass/country rock album. Usually the allmusic.com website gives very good record reviews, but on this one their 2 stars is completely unwarranted and the comments are vacuous.

Just listen to the music. Watch your toes. If they aren't tapping by the second band on the album, either your leg or your brain has gone to sleep.

This is my very top pick on the "Why isn't this available now on CD?" list.

I agree with the other reviewers on not worrying about whether Gram Parsons is on this album. If you need a GP fix, then go listen to Grievous Angel, a wonderful album. But don't let it stop you from listening to this gem.

BTW, there is a very nice family tree of all the incarnations through 1972 that TFBB went through, giving plenty of credit to Gram. However, the group did just fine without him as this outstanding release shows.

I know almost nothing about the technical ability of the players on this album, although I have heard of most of them, and I'm not that big a fan of the Burritos, although I count the Byrds as the best band of the Sixties and Sweetheart of the Rodeo and Gram Parsons's Grievous Angel as two of the best five studio albums ever made. However Last of the Red Hot Burritos is the most exciting and breath-taking live album in my collection.

Other reviewers have referred to the way the Burritos have taken songs associated with other genres and made them their own. How true. I imagine this means that everyone will have their own favourites. I like them all and never having had much taste for the band's previous studio albums I didn't have a preconceived idea of what the songs should sound like when I first heard this. I imagine if I now heard the studio versions I would think they were flabby and bloodless.

I have looked for ages on Amazon here in England for this album but never found it. Suddenly in the last few weeks it has turned up as being sold "used" for £80! I tell you, I was tempted. (And I have a rule never to buy a CD costing more than £10. I rarely break the rule and then only by a couple of pounds.) On a whim I looked on American Amazon and there it is. Much cheaper as well. But still "used".

I well recall the late John Peel, the best-loved DJ in England who died almost a year ago, playing practically every track of the album on his late-night show. I think he was so impressed that he ditched his playlist to accommodate the songs. He was particularly impressed by Hot Burrito #2, which is my own favourite.

So why is it still unavailable?

The Last of the Red Hot Burritos is one of the finest combination albums you will ever find. I've owned the record for years ... ever since my brother was at the concert where it was recorded and came home talking endlessly about the best band he had ever seen. This was a period when bands were willing to try different types of music to get across their message as well as give power and life to their music. None did it better than this concert and album. I've never heard a better Six Days on the Road and Byron Berlin is fabulous on the Orange Blossom Special. I saw this a few years ago on CD and failed to buy it. I've kicked myself ever since. I search everywhere for it on CD and can only hope that it is released again SOON.

I bought this album when it first came out in 1972, enjoyed it a lot, then put it on the shelf for thirty-plus years when I "outgrew" my teen-age music. Thank God I didn't throw it away. In resurrecting some of my old dinosaurs for my iPod, I rediscovered this fabulous album. Al Perkins is simply magnificent on the pedal steel guitar. Devil In Disguise and Six Days On The Road are the most joyous tunes I've heard in ages, and it's Perkins' accompaniment that makes these songs soar. Byron Berline is wonderful too. His performance on Orange Blossom Special is great fun to listen to. The Flying Burrito Brothers -- what a band! Rediscovering this album after all these years has been a tremendous gift.

A little crazy in Tuscon 72...."A'int that a lot of love" permiated the air way..all of 1 underground station in town at that time...and what a time!! this Album is one of the best "live" albums ever recorded.....its like the man said " if you were'nt there you really do not know what its' all about." But this album takes you back there in every energetic cut ..why they do'nt release" Last of the Flyin Red Hot Burritos" is a great mystery....

Since Jeff (the reviewer below) is the individual who turned me on to this album in the mid 70's, I would have to agree with him 100%. This album not being available on CD was the driving force that got me to learn how to rip vinyl to WAV.

It doesn't get any better than this.
