Reseña de álbum
There's little question that the double-disc collection Hot Burritos! The Flying Burrito Brothers Anthology 1969-1972 is comprehensive, since it contains the entirety of the band's first three albums plus a bevy of rarities, including six songs from Close Up the Honky-Tonks, two cuts from Sleepless Nights, two tracks from The Last of the Red Hot Burritos, the non-LP single "The Train Song," and "Six Days on the Road," originally released on the 1988 collection Farther Along: The Best of the Flying Burrito Brothers. That pretty much covers everything they cut during those four years. Since the Burritos were truly great while Gram Parsons was in the band — once he left, they were still solid, thanks to Chris Hillman — this may border on overkill for some listeners, especially since the Parsons years are covered expertly by Farther Along, which contained all but one song from The Gilded Palace of Sin, plus the best songs from Deluxe and rarities and highlights from posthumous releases. For neophytes, that's a better bet, yet the converted will find this quite nice. Apart from "The Train Song," which rarely shows up on collections, there aren't any revelations or even new songs, but there are nice liner notes, great outtakes from the photo shoot for Gilded Palace, and exquisite remastered sound. And, for Parsons fanatics, the Hillman-led Flying Burrito Brothers may seem like a new record, too, since they may have previously overlooked it. So, diehards get all the Parsons material in one place, while neophytes with a serious attention span will be introduced to one of the great bands of the last 25 years of the 20th century — and, yes, that means it qualifies as definitive.

The Best You've ****Really**** Never Heard in Your Life
Gram Prasosn gets the credit for the Fyling Burrito Brothers but there is much more than his presence. It is the confluence of his years with the Byrds and musical preferences but more importantly the tightly formed rhythm section that makes Parson's arrangements come to life (some of these songs are old county & western standards). Musically is it folk, blues, rock and country (dubbed American Cosmic music by Gram) but instrumentally it is simply superb. Whether a drummer, bassist, guitarist (acoustic, slide or electric) this has something for everyone that enjoys the lazy twang of country, folk or the Americana genre. With a honky tonk subject matter of drunken nights (Close Up the Honky-Tonks; Dim Lights, Thick Smoke; Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down), wanderlust (Colorado; White Line Fever; Six Days on the Road), prison (Sing Me Back Home) or women/love (The Devil in Disguise; Dark End of The Street; Do you Know How It Feels --Aretha Franklin covered it; or Hot Burrito #1 & #2.) I can't say enough about the Burritos: Almost everything here is a four or five star song and even those not-too-popular hits offer something unique to remember them by--Hippie Boy; Man In The Fog; Hand to Mouth--but are still inherently enjoyable. I think the best part of this album--which makes it hard to listen to--is the variety of songs. If you buy the album, spend some time listeneing and then re-sort the songs to match your mood. The nature of an anthology is to pick the best, which was performed rather well--but the drawback is the diversity of the music as played out through song order. Nonetheless, once you discover what you have, you'll be a true fan. PS: this album is on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
Gram Parsons' Genius on Display
This compilation is a masterpiece of Southern Cal Country. This is what you get when you take a bunch of California hippies who love traditional country music, give them a steel guitar, a big bag of green and some California sunshine. Put simply, this is outstanding country music with 60's soul and sensibilities. From the outstanding covers of Dylan (If You Gotta Go) and Aretha (Do Right Woman) to killers like Wheels, Lazy Days, and the phenominal Six Days on the Road, this is a knock-out. If you love country music, the Byrds, the Dead or other country-influenced rock, you need to check this out. Gram Parsons was a genius. Buy this.
