iTunes Editors’ Notes

This version of the Flying Burrito Brothers, the one without Gram Parsons and Chris Etheridge, was one strong country-rock band that never received the same credit due to Parsons’ cult following. It’s true Parsons was an enviable country singer, but it was this line-up that pulled it off live. Any concert with “Sneaky” Pete Kleinow on pedal steel and Chris Hillman leading the way performing tunes such as Dave Dudley’s “Six Days On the Road” and Mick Jagger and Keith Richards’ “Wild Horses” is one to hear. Future Eagles guitarist Bernie Leadon is one tough customer and he throws his fresh passion into the performance as well. The Burritos were meant to play honky-tonks more than a rock club like the legendary Fillmore and they play like speed-fueled truckers through much of the set, as “Christine’s Tune (A.k.a. Devil In Disguise)” breaks the land-speed record and tracks such as “Lazy Days,” “Dixie Breakdown” and “Willie and the Hand Jive” show the band’s love for playing, pure and simple.

Customer Reviews

good stuff, screw the purists

Pay no attention to the country "purists" (as if there were such a thing as "pure" country). This band is excellent, and these are excellent performances of some of the FBB's best songs. Before complaining about "young stoner dudes" consider that many country luminaries used or have used drugs. But who cares? This is great music. How long before Martin Scorcese cribs from this album for his next movie soundtrack? Ugh.

Great live band

Give me the Parsons era Burritos for studio albums, but give me this version of the Burritos for a smoking live show.

West Coast Country Cowboys

For years, I've read references to groundbreaking, genre-defying brillance of Gram Parsons, Flying Burrito, et al, and I've got to tell you: to these ears, it's all much ado about nothing. This music is country influenced late '60s/early '70s sounding rock as filtered through the west coast music scene of that era. If you like young stoner dudes playing sloppily out of tune and warbling along with pitch-defying country-like vocals, then this is the music for you. If you're a fan of actual country music of this or any era, steer clear, and stick with what you know. If Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Big Brother and others like them are what floats your boat, then by all means check this out. I'd just personally much rather listen to Johnny Cash or Merle Haggard if I'm looking for a '60s country fix.


Formed: 1969 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

The Flying Burrito Brothers helped forge the connection between rock and country, and with their 1969 debut album, The Gilded Palace of Sin, they virtually invented the blueprint for country-rock. Though the band's glory days were brief, they left behind a small body of work that proved vastly influential both in rock and country. The Flying Burrito Brothers reunited later in the '70s, albeit without their...
