In 1968 the Flying Burrito Brothers released The Gilded Palace of Sin on AM Records selling a disappointing 400000 copies Almost forty years later front man G. A succinct but comprehensive overview of The Flying Burrito Brothers and the making of The Gilded Palace of Sin Lots of good observations on the interplay of country folk RB and blues in the late 1960s Gram Parson's ambition to make Cosmic American Music while largely unfulfilled by him certainly inspired others from Uncle Tupelo to REM The book documents many examples for disastrous Burrito Brother shows but I remain grateful for the piece of luck that allowed me to see them at the Avalon Ballroom Easter Sunday 1969 when they were at their bestRandom uotes1 Vanity Cosmic American MusicClose listening to Safe at Home and Sweetheart of the Rodeo show them not as the country rock innovations they’ve been labeled in retrospect but as earnest straightforward country albums loyal and reverential to the tradition that spawned them5 Lust Christine’s TuneAt the same time by choosing to dive into the country tradition they aligned themselves with not just the perceived hokeyness of country but with all the misogynist aspects of the country tradition5 Lust Christine’s TuneAttempting to construct a form of masculinity out of the bricolage of two musical cultures the Burritos were in a double bind6 Avarice Sin CityBastardized gospel forms were the perfect fit for a band whose style was a combination of two genres that were the willful orphans of spiritual music8 Wrath My Uncle SonsDressing like a hippie was a political statement Haight Ashbury was party headuarters for a political movement based not around whom you voted for but what you wore what you ingested and whom you slept with Within the hippie movement the personal the cultural and the musical were political8 Wrath My Uncle SonsTreating the songs as timeless was in some ways a betrayal of what the songs were all about Responding to the country tradition with nothing but empty reiterations of generalized sentiments added nothing to the canon; it allowed country to become a museum piece studied venerated and occasionally repackaged for public consumptionApril 23 2019 644 PM
