Gram Parsons was hardly the only worthwhile musician in the Flying Burrito Brothers, but the group's fusion of a country sound with a rock & roll mentality was largely his brainchild, and though the Burritos soldiered on for a while after he left for a solo career, their focus was never quite the same. In 1972 the bandmembers announced they were calling it a day, and the live set Last of the Red Hot Burritos was intended to be their final album. By this point, Chris Hillman was the band's de facto leader (he was the only member of the group who had appeared on the Burritos' classic debut album) and Last of the Red Hot Burritos reflects Hillman's passion for bluegrass, with a three-song acoustic mini-set appearing alongside tunes from the band's studio albums, as well as including a few songs that the group had never recorded prior to this concert. The tenor of the Flying Burrito Brothers on Last of the Red Hot Burritos was very different from the "Cosmic American Music" of The Gilded Palace of Sin, with more funky groove in the rock and more rural purity in the country, but there's no arguing that Hillman had put together a first-class band, including Byron Berline on fiddle, Al Perkins on guitar and steel, and Roger Bush on upright bass, and they play this material with impressive taste and feeling along with truly exceptional technique. As it happens, Last of the Red Hot Burritos was hardly the end of the line for the Flying Burrito Brothers, as Sneaky Pete Kleinow and Chris Ethridge would relaunch the group in 1975 and various editions of the band would record and tour through the end of the '90s, but this album was a belated but heartfelt farewell to the Chris Hillman era of the Burritos, and speaks to his quiet strength as a bandleader as well as this great band's legacy.

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

Nebraska: When Bruce Springsteen Laid Himself Bare

In 1982, at the height of his glory, the Boss surprised the world with “Nebraska”: a stripped back, entirely acoustic album; a timeless masterpiece bathed in echoes and reflections; an album that describes the fringes of America, and that many consider to be his best.

1972: The Album’s Golden Year

1972 was a monumental year for albums. From the The Rolling Stones to Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin to Big Star, there was an abundance of artists releasing career-defining and redefining music. Here we make our case for ten of the best.
