Flying burrito bros the train song - The Flying Burrito Bros Discography at Discogs

Following the somewhat disappointing Burrito Deluxe , Gram Parsons and the Flying Burrito Brothers parted ways, leaving the band -- especially co-founder Chris Hillman -- with a huge void to fill. Hillman needed not only a new songwriting partner, but also a strong singer to share the vocal duties. For its eponymous third album, the group decided on Rick Roberts , a singer/songwriter with a strong, clear tenor who had headed west after leaving college in South Carolina. It's apparent that Roberts owes more to the . country and folk-rock that Hillman had been mining with the Byrds than to the traditional country influences that Parsons had brought to the original Burrito Brothers . And whereas Chris Hillman was great in a support role behind Parsons and during his days with the Byrds behind Roger McGuinn or Gene Clark , his role as co-leader with someone who lacks that sort of forceful personality only brings his weaknesses to the fore. On the previous two Burrito recordings, Hillman co-wrote much of the best material and helped Parsons to realize his vision of "cosmic American music." But here the sound is much closer to that which bandmate Bernie Leadon would go on to record a year later with the Eagles . And while tracks like Roberts ' plaintive "Colorado," Gene Clark 's "Tried So Hard," and the Hillman - Roberts collaboration "All Alone" are fine examples of the genre, there's little else on this album that truly lives up to the band's name. Much of what's lacking can be found in the performances, but even the most upbeat tunes lack any real oomph, while at times the singing can be less than compelling. The Flying Burrito Brothers is a solid if unspectacular country-rock record.

Like his work with the Flying Burrito Brothers, GP was not a commercial success; neither the album or its single "She" cracked the Billboard 200 . However, it was critically praised at the time of its release, with Bud Scoppa of Rolling Stone gushing, "Gram Parsons is an artist with a vision as unique and personal as those of Jagger/Richards , Ray Davies or any other of the celebrated figures," and praised the album's "rustic authenticity" and Gram's "amazing voice." The album has only risen in esteem since, with AllMusic giving it five stars out five and deeming it "probably the best realized expression of his musical personality...this album remains a haunting reminder of Parsons' talent and influence, and has only gotten better with the passing years." In the liner notes to the 1982 compilation GP , Elvis Costello wrote, "Gram Parsons had helped create a Frankenstein 's monster: country rock. But his first Warners LP, GP , paid no allegiance to this style...The songs are of lost or stolen love, crossed with an occasional R'nB beat...If it should fail to move you, then you have a big problem." states, "Gram Parsons's debut solo album GP allowed audiences to appreciate Gram's incredible vocals and lyrical delivery."
