Wow--great tune in the original post that was unbeknownst to me. Though I've always hear OF the Flying Burrito Brothers, I've never really delved into their music. This will now change. And some great stories shared about Hiillman--thanks for sharing, folks.

While I do "understand", I'll still never understand how anyone who likes music, couldn't like Gram Parsons and the Burrito Brothers.

I also followed Hillman to the Desert Rose Band. Can't say I like it more than Gram or the Burrito Brothers, nor the Byrds. "Different". Some excellent personal posts here. History. Very cool! Thanks.

I wasn't a big fan then or now, but I recognize that that group of young musicians re-invigorated country music by taking it to the roots and injecting the rock energy into it. As I heard a music critic say, country in the early '60s was the last resting place of musical cliches, worn out in other styles. He meant things like the syrupy strings and background harmonies on Patsy Cline records. The young guns like Parsons and Hillman truly made a connection between country and rock.
