Grievous Angel was released four months after Gram Parsons death from a morphine overdose. He was a member of the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Parsons has been credited with helping to found both country rock and alt-country. Oh no! Not my favourite type of music.
I can recognise this album for its contribution to music, but it is country music which I hate. I think the vocals of his singing partner Emmylou Harris help me digest it a bit easier. I would think none of the songs would grab me enough to mention them, but maybe “Return of the Grievous Angel” and “Hearts on Fire” did grab me a little. This is the last album of 1974 in the list of 1001 Albums… 6/10.
