Gram Parsons – Grievous Angel – 12” vinyl. 1974.
Gram Parsons was an American musician who is regarded as one of the pioneers of the country-rock genre. He had a short but influential career, which was tragically cut short when he died at the young age of 26 in 1973.
One of his most revered works is his second solo album, “Grievous Angel,” which was released posthumously in 1974. The album was recorded in two separate sessions that occurred between January 1973 and July 1973, and it was released only three months after Parsons’ untimely death.
“Grievous Angel” featured a mix of traditional country music, rock and roll, and soulful ballads. The album’s title track is one of Gram Parsons’ most famous songs, and it perfectly captures his unique blend of country and rock sensibilities. Other notable songs on the album include “Brass Buttons,” “In My Hour of Darkness,” and “Hickory Wind.”
Despite not achieving commercial success during his lifetime, Gram Parsons’ music has since become an important influence on country and rock musicians alike. The posthumous release of “Grievous Angel” helped to solidify his legacy as a talented and innovative musician, and the album remains a beloved work of American music today.
