"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. 'As a songwriter, Parsons delivered some of his finest work on this set; 'Hot Burrito No. 1' and 'Hot Burrito No. 2' both blend the hurt of classic country weepers with a contemporary sense of anger, jealousy, and confusion ... no one ever brought rock and country together quite like The Flying Burrito Bros., and this album remains their greatest accomplishment.' --All Music Guide. 180-gram 33 RPM pressing, pressed at RTI and packaged in old style ''tip-on'' jacket. Printed by Stoughton on heavy stock with exquisitely restored cover art. 100% analog mastering from real analog tapes, mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. Original label: A&M, original release date: 1969."
