The Early Years Volume 1 & 2 brings together Gram Parsons' (International Submarine Band, The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers) earliest recordings in one convenient and beautiful document on 180 gram audiophile vinyl. It may be a good bit different than the music that made Parsons a legend, but these rough tapes show the talent was always there and was capable of expressing itself in a variety of ways.The first ten songs were taken from a demo Parsons recorded in 1965 at a radio station with the Shilos, a Kingston Trio-type folk group he sang with for a few years. Originals like "Big Country" and "Zah's Blues" show he was already making his mark as a songwriter. Next are eight living-room recordings from late 1965 of Parsons performing solo with his guitar in a friend's apartment in New York City. The performances are thoughtful and full of soul, and the songs show Parsons was strongly developing his creative talent. The set also includes a pair of tunes Parsons cut with The Like, his short-lived rock band. The vinyl set closes with a few tunes Parsons recorded with Brandon de Wilde. Their recordings of "Do Right Woman" and "Together Again" are the first glimpses of the style that would become Parsons' quality mark.A must-have document of Parsons' first musical efforts!180 gram audiophile vinylGatefold sleeve
