The Roots of Gram Parsons

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
A 25-track collection of various tracks that Gram Parsons either covered or was influenced by, this set works just as well as a sequence without the Parsons connection. When you can hear the Louvin Brothers' "The Christian Life," Merle Travis' "I Am a Pilgrim," and Dock Boggs' harrowing version of "Pretty Polly" and then back it up with the Coasters' "Searchin'" and Little Richard's "Lucille," you've got yourself a nice little chunk of American music history, and yes, the roots of Gram Parsons, too.
