The Flying Burrito Brothers’ ‘The Gilded Palace of Sin’

This is a great album from 1969. If you only want to try one song, listen to “Sin City”. Other similar albums are Sweethearts of the Rodeo by the Byrds and Gram Parsons’ solo albums, GP and Return of the Grievous Angel. They were Parsons’ recordings before and after the Flying Burrito Brothers. Other artists had tried to bring country music into rock music but nobody ever did it better.

This is the story behind the suit Parsons is wearing on the cover. He is the second from the right.
