Video: The Flying Burrito Brothers “Hot Burrito #1”

It’s retro Friday and here is Americana royalty, The Flying Burrito Brothers.  This is, of course, from the classic debut album, ‘The Gilded Palace of Sin’.  Though not a commercial success at the time, it was critically well-received for the way the band blended country, folk, rock, psychedelia and other genres.  Countless artists since would cite The Flying Burrito Brothers as an influence.  What makes this wonderful song and video performance stand out is the emotional vocal delivery from Gram Parsons.  Iconic.
