Is this the album that made country cool? Former Byrds Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman picked up where they left off with Sweetheart of the Rodeo with this stunning masterpiece of a debut album by The Flying Burrito Bros. While Parsons had already pushed rock in a country direction during his brief stint with The Byrds and The International Submarine Band, The Gilded Palace of Sin is why the Burritos are widely viewed as the inventors of country rock. Indeed with this album, Hillman and Parsons carved a substantial place in music history as one of the most influential albums and bands of all time.
The Gilded Palace of Sin is not only Flying Burrito Bros.' finest work, it's a true classic full of some of the greatest tunes ever written and sung by Parsons and Hillman.
The original LP art has been restored by IR's Tom Vadakan and the old-style, "tip-on, brown-in" LP jacket is printed by Stoughton

"To survive and prosper, any reissue label must eventually make a splash with a surprise release that's not only relevant, but hasn't yet had a proper remastering. For Intervention, this is that album. The new marvelous-sounding analog lacquer was cut by Kevin Gray, at Cohearent Audio, and the discs were pressed at RTI. The source was a flat safety copy, on 30ips 1/2" tape, of the original stereo master... The Gilded Palace of Sin is probably the fullest expression of Parsons's vision of a hybrid music... His singing was nasal, with shaky intonation, and yet it had undeniable presence." - Robert Baird, Stereophile, May 2017, Recording of the Month, Performance 5/5, Sonics 4.5/5
