Burrito Deluxe is the second and final hot Burrito made while the band was still
led by former Byrds member Gram Parsons. The Flying Burrito Bros. are widely
viewed as the inventors of country rock and are one of the most influential
bands of all time. Burrito Deluxe is another classic full of great tunes written
and sung by Parsons and Hillman.
Burrito Deluxe is 100% Analog Mastered by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio from the
best source available- a phenomenal sounding 1/2" safety copy of the original
stereo master tape. Intervention's remastering preserves all of the top-end
energy and “snap” of the original A&M LP, while the bass foundation is fully
restored to make this new Intervention reissue the definitive listening
experience for this classic LP!
The original LP art is restored by IR's Tom Vadakan, and the old-style, "tip-on,
brown-in" single jacket is printed by Stoughton. It features super Deluxe red
foil accents on the front cover.
"This is a skillful, lightweight folk-rock blend, enlivening the tempos and themes of the country music whose usages it honors." - Robert Christgau
"The last Flying Burrito Brothers album to feature singer/songwriter Gram
Parsons in the lineup might also be the group's finest collective statement.
Without question a debatable point considering the greatness of their debut The
Gilded Palace of Sin. But for my ears—with the help of this sumptuous reissue
from the always reliable Intervention Records—there's something clearly broken
at the base of this album, a growing darkness within even the sunniest songs
that the band had to excise by kicking Parsons out following its release and
some awful live performances. That's evident in their woozy version of the
Rolling Stones' 'Wild Horses' and in the low slung, drooping style that Parsons
brings to his original compositions. The rest of the Burrito Bros. keep their
ill-fated bandmate from staggering off into the twilight with some career-best
performances by pedal steel legend Pete Kleinow and guitarist Bernie Leadon."
