Editorial Reviews

This compilation CD is the first attempt to anthologize the whole span of Gram Parsons' solo & group career. Its generous 21 tracks & 75 minutes playing time do indeed offer the highlights & a raft of rarities. If one Gram Parsons album is all you want, Warm Evenings... should certainly be it, though it is more than likely to send you in search of some of its predecessors' - VOX.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Ever Call It Country Rock November 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The decade-long recording career of Gram Parsons was a period of growth and development. Though he traveled paths that had been beaten by the likes of Bob Wills and Buck Owens, Parsons followed them entirely in his own manner. Therefore he sometimes had to feel his way along. Then, just as he was hitting his stride, hard living and a lifelong heart problem cut his career short. One can only speculate how events might have unfolded differently if he had lived to see the culmination of his vision.
This collection provides an overview of that arc of development. From his early days as a folkie with the Shilohs, through the experimental country music sound of the International Submarine Band and the Byrds, to his visionary work with the Flying Burrito Brothers and as a solo act, this album hits all the high points and creative statements of a ten-year career.
This is not to say that the effort is flawless. For example, printed right on the disc itself is a claim that Parsons lived "a life in Country Rock." Parsons abjectly hated the term "Country Rock," and espoused the title "Cosmic American Music." He believed, and rightly, that this title better exemplified his artistic vision of a music based on the common themes that underly American musical experience. "Country Rock" was, to him and his fans, just a slumgullion of stylistic titles, not a statement in and of itself.
The selection on this disc is stinting toward Parsons' early work, when he was still finding his vision. The Shilohs are represented in only a single track. This is partly because their sound was derivative of Chad Mitchell and the Kingston Trio, but still, they recorded enough material to fill at least two discs currently in circulation. Likewise, only three tracks represent his time with the ISB.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This Album ! March 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I know, why rate an album with 5 stars and tell people not to buy it. Well the reason is simple, Gram Parsons is absolutely to great an artist to limit to a compilation like this. Every record collection should include his GP/Grievous Angel CD, you get his 2 classic solo albums on one CD and their both indispensable (my #1 desert island disc). Then once your hooked pick up the "Flying Burrito Brothers Best OF-Further Along". The remaining part of the trilogy is the Byrds Classic Reissue of "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" which now includes the long missing original Parsons vocals in addition to the McGuinn versions. Don't miss any of these albums and don't settle for a one-disc compilation of a timeless artist like Gram Parsons. If you want to check out my other 5 star picks just follow the link to my reviews, and let me know if there are any albums you think I'd enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate 1 CD compilation. December 20, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains songs from variousstages of Parson's career, ( I.S.B.,The Byrds, Flying Burritos, and withEmmylou Harris). The 21 selections are perfect and it comes with a nicebooklet. Parsons had one of the most beautiful voices you'll everhear and is credited with inventing country-rock. 75 min. total.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lean, mean and to the point December 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Until the Y2K Rhino collection came along, this was the best Gram Parsons collection on the face of the planet... It's still extremely well-focussed and possibly more fun to listen to. A few classic songs are left off, but this is an exceptionally well-programmed set of music. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, timeless, Cosmic American Music December 7, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Don't be fooled by the cheesy packaging and Australian origin ... this CD is a great primer for one of the great voices/songwriters in popular music. Gram burned too hot, burned out too fast.
BTW, Kudos to whomever gets these things together at Raven Records; I think this is the same company that put out a great Yardbirds compilation record a few years back ... the only one in existence to span the best of Clapton-to-Page on ONE CD.
