Today 1973 Gram Parsons died

Gram Parsons : 1946_November_05 – 1973_September_19.
So today it's 34 years ago he died. I followed him intensivily in them years but just now figure out he wasn't even 28 years. Strange feeling.

Instead of me writing about Gram Parsons it's much better to let Emmylou Harris talk about him. Here's a Youtube video where Emmylou pitches for Gram in a 2000 UK TV poll for the "Influential Musician of the Millennium".

I hope you liked this, don't you ? So here's another one. You'll hear Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris in Grevous angel while you're watching a very nice 4 minute photo/video compilation !
Note that the girls on the sleeve of the Flying Burrito Brothers album Guilded palace of sin weren't friends but just some models. They all appear on this vid !

At the end his death is viewed : at the Joshua Tree Inn, due to alcohol and drugs... You can find elsewhere (but I hope you already knew, if so you're like me a real GP fan ....) all the further info about that tragical ('musical') event.
Emmylou Harris own composition 'Boulder to Birmingham' is a kinda lovesong to him. Listen please !

I wrote earlier about Gram. His sudden leaving from the International Submarine Band to the Byrds. His singing on Sweetheart on the rodeo. The banning to issue that Columbia recording with the voice of Gram by Lee Hazlewood ......
I give you enough 'key-words' for searching my Blog. Take your time to do so....

In one of my earlier posts I told ya about that LP Sweetheart of the rodeo.
I offer you in the comment this LP.
But there's more.
I offer ya even three 'Sweetheart' albums !!

Great tracks like You Ain't Going Nowhere, The Christian Life (with Gram takes 7, 8 ,11), Life In Prison (with Gram take 1, 2, 3, 4, 11), You Don't Miss Your Water, One Hundred Years From Now (with Gram take 2, 12, 13, 14), Hickory Wind plus Nothing Was Delivered.

First the album itself with some bonustracks by Gram (the not issued ones).
Second just Gram Parons bonus tracks & some International Submarine Band tracks.
Third again the LP but with different bonus tracks by Gram Parsons.
So enough choice I think.
Maybe this is all confusing but when you go to the comments it will all be clear.
I added the 'take' numbers to the various songs so it's up to yourself.
I myself would know : I'd take all three !! But I'm not you ... :-)

By the way, watch the date november 05 (Gram's birthday !) when I will post a unique black/white clip by Gram and Emmy.....
Already prepared it. :-)

Links (just pick the ones you want, they're not 'connected') :

Of course you understand to replace in every link twice the '#' in an 'a' otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!

Pass to all three : 070918

Files are all about 55MB, 'cause the songs are only in 128kbits (but every album is at least 65 minutes)

When you see this in Google cache (or alike or through using the search function in my Blog) you actually have to go to my Blog and the plain comment itself otherwise you cannot copy/paste this !
If you don't wanna come to me of course you can also write the link down and type it afterwards...... :-)

http://jeansmusicblog.blogspot.com/2007_09_01_archive.html
So go back to 'Google search' and click on my main 'Blog link' instead of the 'Google cache'.
Or click on this page on 'home' and go to the '2007 september archives'.
>>

And when you want to have these LP's you can, while downloading, easily tell me (and other viewers) why you like to listen to them or afterwards what you think of these songs. Don't you agree ?
A Blog is in my opinion a meaning to express thoughts (instead of just downloading music) ! Participate !
Tell something about Gram Parson, Emmylou Harris, the Byrds. It's up to you.
 
Oops, forgot the links to the video's.

As usual replace in every link twice the '#' in an 'a' otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
 
Listening to International Submarine Band - Safe at Home as I write this. Wonderful :)

I'm amazed at all the obscure and bootleg Parsons material I've found on the web recently.

Many thanks for dl's and the extra info.
