Gram Parsons - Another Side of This Life The Lost Recordings of Gram Parsons 1965-1966 12inch
Out of Stock
The 18 previously unreleased, solo acoustic performances on this collection were recorded between March 1965 and December 1966. These show Parsons not as a country singer, rock singer, or even folk-rock singer, but very much as a mid-'60s folkie, in the mold of so many artists to be heard in the Greenwich Village scene. There's no straight country music in his repertoire, comprised largely of covers of songs by then-contemporary writers such as Buffy Sainte-Marie, Tim Hardin, Tom Paxton, and Fred Neil, along with high-caliber compositions that would be popularized by rock groups. There are also five Parsons originals, a few not available elsewhere, and others recorded at other points either by himself or different performers.
