Gram Parsons: GP (Reprise)*****

Jonh Ingham, Sounds, 1 May 1976

IF YOU woundered why, or where, Rick Grech gets off with performing Gram Parsons type country music, it stems from co-producing this bona fide classic. It is also here we find the first appearance of Emmylou Harris, recently saved from a Washington bar, and also a lot of the people who now constitute the backing on her albums: Glen D. Hardin, James Burton, Byron Berline, Ron Tutt, plus a handful of other ace pickers, including steel guitar wizard Buddy Emmons.

Total word count of piece: 288
