Sin City: The Very Best of the Flying Burrito Brothers

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Led by the inimitable Gram Parsons, the Flying Burrito Brothers have long since assumed the throne of the country-rock fiefdom, having tilled the soil bridging the two genres at the turn of the '70s with the landmark albums The Gilded Palace of Sin and Burrito Deluxe. Parsons and fellow traveler Chris Hillman had done time with the Byrds -- most notably circa 1968's Sweetheart of the Rodeo, the blueprint for most country-rock and alt-country that's come along since. The Burritos' trump card was Parsons' heart-rending voice, which could pry open the tear ducts on soul nuggets "Dark End of the Street", honky-tonk rattlers "Six Days on the Road", and classic rock gems ...

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Led by the inimitable Gram Parsons, the Flying Burrito Brothers have long since assumed the throne of the country-rock fiefdom, having tilled the soil bridging the two genres at the turn of the '70s with the landmark albums The Gilded Palace of Sin and Burrito Deluxe. Parsons and fellow traveler Chris Hillman had done time with the Byrds -- most notably circa 1968's Sweetheart of the Rodeo, the blueprint for most country-rock and alt-country that's come along since. The Burritos' trump card was Parsons' heart-rending voice, which could pry open the tear ducts on soul nuggets "Dark End of the Street", honky-tonk rattlers "Six Days on the Road", and classic rock gems the Stones' "Wild Horses," which surpasses the better-known version alike. While their accomplishments were comprehensively celebrated on 2000's double-disc Hot Burritos! The Flying Burrito Brothers Anthology: 1969-1972 and Parsons' legacy was revisited on 2001's Sacred Hearts and Fallen Angels: The Gram Parsons Anthology, this action-packed single disc compiles the Burritos' crème de la crème. The 25 tracks include the entirety of their two aforementioned albums plus three bonus tracks: the single-only "The Train Song" and the covers "Six Days on the Road" and "Close Up the Honky-tonks." With a booklet featuring an insightful essay, basic track notes, and some flashy photos, it's the perfect primer for those new to the Burritos and an indispensable, pocket-size encapsulation for diehard fans.
All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
This 25-song, single-CD anthology collects the cream of the recordings the Flying Burrito Brothers made while Gram Parsons was in the band. Since their career has taken in many more years and recordings than that relatively brief juncture, some might question whether it's a comprehensive or balanced overview. On the other hand, the majority of listeners would agree that the Parsons era of the Burritos was by far the most significant and best phase of the band. Sin City has everything from the first two Burritos albums, The Gilded Palace of Sin and Burrito Deluxe, as well as the single "Train Song" and a couple of other stray Parsons-era cuts, "Six Days on the Road" and "Close Up the Honky-Tonks." All 25 of these songs, plus 18 others including a few on which Parsons plays that don't show up on Sin City, are on the more comprehensive two-CD set Hot Burritos! The Flying Burrito Brothers Anthology 1969-1972. That two-CD set thus still gets the nod for the best Flying Burrito Brothers comp. But for those looking for the core Parsons-Burritos tracks, or a more concise and consistent collection, Sin City serves its purpose well, with decent annotation though likewise condensed in quantity from what you'll read in the Hot Burritos! booklet.
