I can't imagine who wrote Amazon's Product description, but he or she has it completely the wrong way round.
GP is a very good album, Grievous Angel is the one on which Gram Parsons's legend is built. What's more, that's
the general critical view too, from the NME Book of Rock II (when NME was a very different publication to the
Smash Hits for the 2010s it is today) onwards.
Every track is masterful, the harmonies of Gram and Emmylou Harris are so sublime that they are not of this
world and the band is a true supergroup (Elvis's very own band, no less: and for all those who might scoff at
that they must surely be able to get their head round the fact that he could command the very best).
File alongside Horses, Marquee Moon, Blood on the Tracks, The Band, Hunky Dory, Liege and Lief, Happy/Sad, Everyone
Knows This Is Nowhere, Mule Variations, Astral Weeks, Velvet Underground Live 1969: it's that good.
