The Flying Burrito Brothers Bootleg 06/08/69 The Palomino Club North Hollywood CA @ 320 Pulled From The Vault

Wikipedia says: The Flying Burrito Brothers was an early country rock band, best known for their influential debut album, 1969's The Gilded Palace of Sin. Although the group is most often considered in connection with country rock legends Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, the group endured myriad personnel changes over many years

The "Flying Burrito Brothers" actually 'borrowed' their name from the original "Flying Burrito Brothers", which was composed of bassist Ian Dunlop and drummer Mickey Gauvin, bandmates of Parsons' from the Boston-based International Submarine Band, plus any of a loose coalition of musicians. In 1968, to deliberately concentrate on creating and playing music without the distractions of the music industry, the original Brothers moved from Los Angeles to New York City. From this base they continued to tour the Northeast playing their eclectic traditional/rockabilly/blues/R&B-oriented version of rock, using the name "The Flying Burrito Brothers East" after Parsons' group became famous.

Meanwhile, on the West Coast, Parsons and guitarist/mandolinist/bassist/vocalist Chris Hillman thought this same moniker would be perfectly suited to the band they had been dreaming of since early 1968, when, as members of Roger McGuinn's band The Byrds, they created one of the first country-oriented rock albums, Sweetheart of the Rodeo. They immersed themselves in their vision in their house in the San Fernando Valley, dubbed "Burrito Manor", even replacing their wardrobe with a set of custom country-Western suits from tailor to the C&W stars, Nudie's Rodeo Tailors (Parsons's had marijuana leaf embroidery) and began a period of intensely fruitful creativity. At this juncture, the band also included pianist/bassist Chris Ethridge and pedal steel guitarist Pete Kleinow.

Their first album The Gilded Palace of Sin (1969) did not sell terribly well, but the group had a cult following which included musicians such as Bob Dylan[citation needed] and The Rolling Stones. In fact, the FBB were among the initial acts on the stage at the Rolling Stones' infamous "Altamont" concert on December 1969, and were on stage when one of the first fights broke out in front of the stage. Parsons soon became friends with Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones and left the group after 1970's Burrito Deluxe, which also saw the departure of Ethridge and addition of guitarist/dobro player/vocalist Bernie Leadon and drummer Michael Clarke (of The Byrds). Rick Roberts replaced Parsons and released a self-titled album with the group in 1971. Kleinow then left to become a session musician and Leadon joined The Eagles. Al Perkins and Roger Bush replaced them, and Kenny Wertz and Byron Berline joined as well, releasing Last of the Red Hot Burritos (1972), a live album. The band fell apart. Hillman and Perkins joined Manassas, while Berline, Bush and Wertz formed Country Gazette. Roberts reassembled a new group for a 1973 European tour, and then began a solo career before forming Firefall with Michael Clarke.

The Band: Gram Parsons, Chris Hillman, Sneaky Pete Kleinow, Michael Clarke and Chris Ethridge, joined by Clarence White. Jimmy Morris takes lead vocals on "Life in Prison" and "Hungry Eyes," and sings on "High on a Hilltop"
