I bought this album when it was first released, and it remains to this day a treasured possession, growing more so every year. 'Acid Country' it was described as when it first appeared and that remains a pretty fair description. Sneeky Pete Kleinow's pedal steel hits you from the start and figures strongly throughout the album. The heartstring-tugging vocals of Gram Parsons reach lump- in- the- throat proportions on Hot Burrito No 1 and with Chris Hillman he presents us with the definitive version of Dark End of the Street.
To my mind, there has never been another album like this; the follow-up , Burrito Deluxe is good but just doesn't have the spark and rawness of this little masterpiece.

The first and best LP from the FBB is the benchmark for "alt-country" and "blue-eyed soul". Written fairly quickly, Parsons and Hillman, managed to record a truly landmark album, which although is very much of its time, still sounds groundbreaking today. Parsons trademarks his cracked mostly in tune voice over such killer cuts as "Hot Burrito #1" and "Hot Burrito #2". His reading of "Dark End of the Street" may not impress James Carr fans, but it will move everybody else.
Hillman provides the musical chops and appears to be relishing his release from Byrdland - check out the bluegrassy "My Uncle". Like the Velvet Underground LP's, nobody bought this when it was first released. However it's influence, for better or for worse, has and will endure.

I first heard this album - on the first CD reissue from Edsel -in 1988. I had recently been introduced to The Byrds by an older friend (thanks, BG!) and to my surprise, I found I absolutely loved the country-rock album they made ('Sweetheart of the Rodeo'). At the same time, I read the first edition of Rogan's biog of the Byrds (then entitled 'Timeless Flight'), so I had a good source of information on The Byrds and consequently the founding members of the Burritos, Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons. I thought I was behind the times, then a year or two later, the alt-country thing really took off, and Parsons, who had previously been a critics' darling and no more, was suddenly one of the sacred cows of popular music.

Some history for the uninitiated: Gram Parsons had started his career in a band called The Shilos, then cut an album with a group called The International Submarine Band (of which he was lead singer). The ISB album 'Safe at Home' is a must-buy if you find you like this first Burritos record. Parsons auditioned for the Byrds as a pianist, as at the time, Jim/Roger McGuinn of The Byrds had the idea the group would record an album that encapsulated the history of popular music, from hillbilly stuff, through jazz, rock and electronica. David Crosby and Michael Clarke had gone, leaving The Byrds down to McGuinn and Chris Hillman. Hillman played bass for The Byrds and suddenly flowered as a songwriter on their fourth album ('Younger Than Yesterday'), writing 4 songs and collaborating with McGuinn on a fifth. Prior to The Byrds, Hillman had played and recorded bluegrass albums as a teenager with the Scottsville Squirrel Barkers and The Hillmen as mandolinist. So while McGuinn and Crosby were folkies, Hillman and Gene Clark were the true country musicians in the Byrds.
