Waterloo Records

In early 1973 Gram Parsons embarked on a tour to promote his recently released first solo album GP. Gram put together a pretty great band, including the then unknown Emmylou Harris as his singing partner. The shows were somewhat uneven at first, but by midtour the band started to find it's groove. One show stood out to pedal steel player Neil Flanz-The 3rd night at the Bijou Cafe in Philadelphia. Neil felt that this was the best show of the tour and requested a copy of the soundboard recording. He saved it for almost 40 years when it was acquired by Amoeba Music for a future Gram release. It then disappeared in the Amoeba vault for another 10 years before it was rediscovered when Amoeba moved to a new location in LA. It turns out Neil was right. This is Gram and Emmylou at their finest. And it's the next to last club date ever of Gram and the Fallen Angels. A 50 year old soundboard cassette offers some unique challenges, but thanks to the efforts of some of the world's best archival sound restoration engineers, the beauty and energy of Gram, Emmy and the band shine through. For all of those who never got to experience Gram live, this is the closest we'll ever get to being there. First new Gram solo material in 40 years. First live Gram solo club appearance ever released. Recorded 3/16/73 Bijou Cafe Philadelphia. Initive. 2LP performance in it's original sequence. 19 Songs-Includes versions of Sin City, Love Hurts & Drug Store. Truck Drivin' Man Band includes Emmylou Harris on vocals.
