100% AAA analog mastering from the original tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio
180-gram vinyl pressed at RTI
Exquisitely restored jacket art by Stoughton Printing
"To survive and prosper, any reissue label must eventually make a splash with a surprise release that's not only relevant, but hasn't yet had a proper remastering. For Intervention (Records), this is that album. The new marvelous-sounding analog lacquer was cut by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio, and the discs were pressed at RTI. The source was a flat safety copy, on 30 ips 1/2-inch tape, of the original stereo master. ... The Gilded Palace of Sin is probably the fullest expression of Parson's vision of a hybrid music. The inclusion of two soul numbers, 'Do Right Woman' and 'Dark End of the Street' written by Memphis music icons Dan Penn and Chips Moman and hits for, respectively, Aretha Franklin and James Carr, was a move surely spearheaded by Parsons and his desire to find Cosmic American Music." — Performance = 5/5; Sonics 4.5/5 - Robert Baird, Stereophile, May 2017
Intervention Records is reissuing The Flying Burrito Bros. classic 1969 debut, The Gilded Palace of Sin on 180-gram vinyl and on SACD in the second half of the year.
Headed by former Byrds Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, The Flying Burrito Bros. are widely viewed as the inventors of country rock and are one of the most influential bands of all time. The Gilded Palace of Sin is not only FBB's finest work, it's a true classic full of some of the greatest tunes ever written and sung by Parsons and Hillman.
The Gilded Palace of Sin was mastered 100% AAA analog by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the best source available- a phenomenal sounding 1/2" safety copy of the original stereo master tape. All of the top-end energy and "snap" of the original A&M LP is preserved, 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 has been restored by IR's Tom Vadakan and the old-style, "tip-on, brown-in" LP jacket will be printed by Stoughton.
The Flying Burrito Brothers: Chris Hillman (vocals, guitar, mandolin); Gram Parsons (vocals, guitar, keyboards); "Sneeky" Pete Kleinow (pedal steel guitar); Chris Etheridge (piano, bass, background vocals). Additional personnel: Hot Burrito Chorus (vocals); Jon Corneal, Eddie Hoh, Sam Goldstein, Popeye Philips (drums). Producers: The Flying Burritos Brothers, Larry Marks, Henry Lewy. The Gilded Palace Of Sin allowed two former Byrds, Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, to fully explore country music. Several selections, notably "Christine's Tune" and "Wheels," succeeded in capturing the joys of Nashville-inspired rock, but the group proved equally adept at interpreting southern soul standards. Parsons' aching vocal on Dan Penn's "Dark End Of The Street" articulated the dilemmas of infidelity, while on his own composition, "Hot Burrito No. 1," he revealed a vulnerability unusual in a male singer. "Sneaky" Pete Kleinow explored the sonic possibilities of the pedal steel guitar rather than employing orthodox country embellishments, emblematic of the desire to question preconceptions that gives this album its unique qualities.
