Wild Horses

This track is one that was love on first listen for me and the affair still goes on – I heard the Stones version first well before I discovered The Flying Burrito Brothers version which was the first to be released appearing on the bands second album Burrito Deluxe in April 1970, around a year before Sticky Fingers came out.

A quartet of favourites, MOKB has a whole load more.

Grievous Angel – The Gram Parsons Story

Continuing on the Gram theme here’s a fantastic one hour audio documentary hosted by the venerable Bob Harris who takes a look back at the enigma that is Gram Parsons, contributions from Polly Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Keith Richards, Phil Kaufman and some rare words of wisdom from the legend himself.

(Can’t recall how I got this so no acknowledgement)

Charlie Louvin “Hickory Wind: Live at the Gram Parsons Guitar Pull Waycross GA” (Tompkins Square 2010)

On February 22, 1956, The Louvin Brothers warmed up for Elvis Presley at City Auditorium in Waycross, GA. On hand was a nine year old boy named Gram Parsons. It would leave an indelible mark on the future legend, who went on to popularize several Louvin Brothers songs for the ages. On September 19, 2009, Charlie returned to Waycross to pay tribute to the granddaddy of “Alt Country”/”Americana”, singing “Hickory Wind” for the first time ever, as well as Louvin Brothers songs Gram either recorded or must have heard in his early years. If Gram is the granddaddy, Charlie is the great-granddaddy ; a Country Music Hall of Famer, and a legend in the truest sense of the word.

“There’s a young man whose name is hangin’ on this festival he recorded some Louvin brothers songs and we owe him a lot, he introduced our music to rock ‘n’ roll people” is how Charlie Louvin introduces us to Parsons classic – around which there remains some controversy.
