MP3: The Flying Burrito Brothers – “Long Black Limousine” (live) from Gram Parsons Archives Vol. 1: The Flying Burrito Brothers “Live” at the Avalon 1969, due October 30 on Amoeba Records. The MP3 is only available through August 30, so get it while you can.
The two-disc, 27-track set includes a number of rarities from shows that featured the Burritos opening for the Grateful Dead on April 4, 5 and 6, 1969 at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco. The shows were recorded by the legendary sound engineer/chemist Owsley “Bear” Stanley and are, according to Amoeba, “the highest quality Gram Parsons live material available.” More info.
